“This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This is his own recipe. I believe that this would be better if the sour cream were added at the very end and not allowed to boil, but have posted it as he made it. He suggests serving this with rice and buttered Melba toast, but I prefer egg noodles.”
