Vintage Recipe Week- Monday

Today starts the “vintage” recipe week. So without further ado, here is today’s recipes (and some pictures)

Barbeque Cups

My grandma (Wanno) had 3 boys. She raves this recipe is one all 3 loved! This is recipe came from a magazine clipping (which I forgot to take a picture of) which says it is the winner of the 1974 bake off, however it doesn’t say what bake off.

Original Recipe:


1 lb ground beef, browned and drained

1/2 c. barbecue sauce

1 T. minced onion, optional

1 T. brown sugar

1 can refrigerator biscuits

3/4 c. grated Cheddar cheese


Add barbecue sauce, onions and brown sugar to the browned and drained ground beef.

Press biscuits into greased muffin pan to form cups.  Spoon beef mixture into the cups and top with grated cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


Modifications for 2009:



What we thought….

These were good. My hubby liked the contrast in textures. I think we will keep these in our rotation.



Hot Doggities

Another magazine clipping, it is dated 1964, but I am not sure which magazine.


Original Recipe:


1 pound frankfurters

½ cup of Ketchup

1 cup of crushed Corn Flakes

Wooden Skewers

Aluminum  foil



Put each frankfurter on a skewer

Roll each skewed frank in ketchup, then in the crushed Corn Flakes

Place on foil lined baking sheet

Bake at 350º for 15 minutes or until crunchy.


Modifications for 2009:

We also used bread crumbs as an alternative to the Corn Flakes.


What we thought….

Mark gobbled up one. Dale said it was like a corn dog, but he didn’t feel as guilty (although he ate 2 and the other half of Mark’s.) Simba and Sukey loved the smell and were quite mad that they didn’t get to sample.
