Frankfurter Beef Loaf

This recipe is a real oldie, from the 1935 booklet Our Favorite Meat Recipes. It was an National Live Stock And Meat Board publication. The appeal of the photos have not held up to time so I won't be posting them. Have you noticed that vintage meat dish photos are usually very nasty looking? Well on to the recipe:

Frankfurter Beef Loaf

2 pounds ground beef
4 medium-sized frankfurters
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 small onion, grated
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 slices bacon
Combine ground beef and bread crumbs. Season with grated onion, chopped parsley and salt and pepper. Moisten with beaten egg and shape into a loaf, with the frankfurters, lengthwise in it. Put bacon strips over the top and bake in a 350 degree oven for one hour.

I agree Rochelle, those older photos leave a lot to be desired. I don't even like a lot of them from the 80s. Cookbook photos have come a long way, haven't they? Nice to see you again.

Sorry to disappoint you, but this sounds a lot like a recipe my mother tried out in 1960 (or thereabouts). Normally my father and I were very encouraging about her cooking experiments - but this one got two thumbs down after one taste. I've eaten some bad food, but this was one of the worst ever.

Sorry, Rochelle, but this sounds a lot like a recipe my mother tried sometime around 1960. Most of her experiments were pretty good, but I still remember how vile this one tasted.
