A Bountiful Recipe for Budget Camping
Everyone is feeling the pinch these days but most of the “budget” recipes I find in the women’s magazines today focus on beans, pasta and vegetables. It’s getting tiresome. For a change I went to some old cookbooks to see how our Grandmothers managed.
Don’t quit camping! It’s the most fun for the least money, especially when you serve simple recipes like this one.
15-ounce can roast beef hash or corned beef hash
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 slices pineapple
4 hamburger buns
4 slices American cheese
If possible, chill the hash for easier cutting. Remove hash from the can and cut or shape it into 4 patties. Spread a little flour on a paper plate and add a little pepper if you like but no salt. Dip patties in flour on both sides and brown until crispy in not oil in a nonstick skillet. You could skip the flour but it makes for a crustier patty.
Brown pineapple slices on both sides in the same skillet. Place a pineapple slice atop each hashburger and top with a slice of cheese , allowing heat from the pan to melt it.
“Butter” cut buns with a little mustard, add hashburgers and eat at once. Serves 4.
