Vintage Recipe: Hamburger Tomato Casserole

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


This is an curious recipe for Hamburger Tomato Scallop. The recipe itself is interesting, even grabbing the attention of my picky teenage son who immediately requested I make the dish. But it is written on a piece of note paper from “Bob Collier Electric Co.” in Denver, Colorado. Judging by the phone number (Pearl 3677), the page dates to around the 1950s or so.

This recipe for Scalloped Apple and Cabbage came from a newspaper clipping that was then copied (typed) onto a 3x5 index card. In this case, the clipping is still attached by paper clip to the recipe card! It was found in an old large recipe file box. I was unable to find any dates on the front of back of the newspaper clipping so the age of the recipe is still unknown.
