Cranburger Broil

One last one from the Better Homes and Gardens 1963 Meals in Minutes. From the "Meals From Your Broiler" chapter here comes a menu for a Cranburger Broil:  Cranburgers, Green Beans, Buttered Sweet Potato Halves, Stuffed Olives, Carrot Sticks, Celery Sticks, Steamed Fig Pudding with Frosty Sauce, Hot Coffee.
Cranburgers: Pour one 6-oz. can evaporated milk over 2 slices white bread;  add 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, 2 tablespoons instant minced onion, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp pepper.  Mix; form 6 patties.
To complete:  Place patties on broiler rack; broil 6 minutes.  Turn patties and add canned sweet-potato halves.  Brush potatoes with melted butter; season.  Broil 5 minutes.  Top each patty with 1 tablespoon whole cranberry sauce.  Broil 2 minutes. 
This may actually be ok with just ground turkey patties and a little cranberry sauce. Just a thought. Here's the directions for dessert:  
Dessert is steamed pudding.  Simply slip a can of steamed pudding into boiling water - let simmer according to label directions.  Come dessert time, team hot pudding with Frosty Sauce:  Beat 1 pint soft vanilla ice cream till fluffy.  Dash with nutmeg. 
A "Can of steamed pudding"? Oh boy.

I'm off to the tonight to the Plainfield Public Library District to do my recipe scrapbooking Celebrations show. It's always fun to go there.
