“When money is tight this will stretch your hamburger meat. It's another recipe from my favorite cook book - Stories & Recipes of the Great Depression by Rita Van Amber. This recipe is attributed to Alma Smith of Woodville, WI. She wrote: "This was a popular dish when meat was rationed through the war." Use what you need in whatever dish you're making and freeze the rest.”
