“From Better Homes & Gardens Best Buffets Cookbook, Meredith Press, 1963, pg. 26. My husband brought home a couple of bags of cookbooks from the library book sale... I made this one and thought it was pretty tasty! Very similar to the hamburger, green bean, tomato soup with mashed potatoes recipes.”
