One of my newest eBay acquistions (I think it was two dollars) is Carolyn Coggins’ Company Cookbook, published in 1954. It is an interesting book, more for Ms. Coggins’ commentary than the recipes, but there are many that look worthy of trying. Here is one that you might want to try:
Makes 8 servings
2 pounds hamburger
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix thoroughly and press half the meat mixture into greased custard cups. Spread stuffing and cover with the remaining meat mixutre. Dot with butter or margarine. Set custard cups into a pan of water and bake in moderate oven (350 F.) 45 minutes.
Make the stuffing by combining 2 cups prepared bread stuffing for poultry, 2 tablespoons chopped onion, 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine, 1/2 teaspooon thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons hot bouillon. Combine ingredients in order given and blend.
