Hot Toddy Recipe… don’t say I never gave ya nothin’!  Recipe circa 1947.

Not exactly my preferred toddy recipe, but you can’t fault the proportions.

here is the recipe for tuna burgers from The Pirate Ship Restaurant that was in Disneyland.

Disneyland Tuna Burgers

· 1 can of Tuna (Chicken of the Sea was their brand)

· 2 tbsp Mayo

· ¼ cup finely chopped celery

· Sesame Seed Hamburger Buns

· Thousand Island Dressing.

· Sweet Pickle slices.

Mix first three ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread Thousand Island Dressing on bottom half of buns. Top with tuna mixture and sweet pickle slices. Top with Bun. Wrap tightly in foil and heat in 350 oven for 20 minutes

The more research I do, the more I’m convinced the 50s and 60s were a culinary dark age.

Cookie Monster’s famous cookie recipe. 

Come to think of it, this might’ve been one of the first recipes I ever tried to make (albeit with a lot of help from my parents).  From the Sesame Street Treasury books.

1968, I assure you real pizza does not contain Copha. It does not contain instant mashed potato either.
