Many of the interesting recipes in this book have originated in foreign lands, others are present-day favorites. Still others were favorites of the past but have been less forgotten in our present fast pace of food merchandising... (from the Preface)
365 ways to cook hamburger. That's a recipe a day for an entire year! When so much content involves one very specific food, you know that an expert stands behind these pages.
Doyne was a man of many things. A jack of all trades when it came to occupations, if there was one job he could honestly say he knew how to do with singular focus and rapt attention throughout his life, it was to cook with ground beef.
Published in 1960, Doyne first started exploring ground beef recipes when he and a few roommates began their professional working life post-college. After living expenses and bills were paid each month, there wasn't a lot of money left over for food, and these guys were hungry, So Doyne started experimenting with one of the most economical cuts of protein-laden foods - ground beef.
With his muse in the kitchen firmly set in place, Doyne created, embellished, discovered, researched and collected hamburger-laden recipes from all over the world for the next twenty years. His mother-in-law even helped out by offering creative recipes she made during the ration years of WWI. That makes this cookbook a time capsule of both food trends, economical recipes and a ground beef meal archive.
Suited best for the meat lover in your life, the grill king or the meatball maven, this cookbook creatively wraps up a host of what is typically thought of as hamburger fare - meatballs, hamburger patties, casserole, stuffed vegetables and skillet dinners and turns it into unique recipes with diverse flavor pairings inspired by food history. Almost all the recipes contain fresh, whole ingredients, with just a few that call for canned foods (mostly condensed soups) and liquid smoke. Suggested cooking equipment includes grill, stovetop, oven and campfire.
