Another delicious recipe from the pages of Rosie's Riveting Recipes.
During Rosie's day beef was in very short supply, so any recipe that helped make scarce beef go further was helpful and appreciated. This recipe is similar to a meatloaf and it's still delicious today.
STUFFED HAMBURGER ON ONION SLICES
1 pound hamburger
1 tablespoon melted margarine*
1 tablespoon ketchup
4 slices bread
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon milk
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 cup water
salt & pepper
Divide hamburger into six equal servings. Roll or pat out as thin as possible. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Make dressing by combining bread, milk, ketchup with 1 tablespoon melted margarine. Place a spoonful on each square. Bring edges of meat up over the dressing, pat into shape, being sure all dressing is covered. Fry in hot margarine in skillet. When brown on both sides, add 1/2 cup water, cover and cook over low heat 8 to 10 minutes. Serve on raw onion slices.
*Butter may be used in place of margarine.
Modern adaptation. Caramelize the onion slices in a separate pan. Serve on a hamburger bun or an onion roll.
