This vintage cookbook Choice Recipes and Menus using Canned Foods by the American Can Company dates back to 1951. Pictured above is the front of the book and the picture to the right is one of their featured recipes, Quick Corned Beef Hash Loaf. The recipe is listed below. I have to be honest, I have not tried it, I am more intrigued by it. I’m sure anything with bacon fat must be good? Thumbing through the pages of this cookbook I was amazed that you could actually make a casserole dish from Vienna Sausages, Canned Sardines and my favorite casserole… Canned Tongue Supreme (I chose not to publish this recipe, because I really want you to come back to the blog). Enjoy the recipe, and if any of you are braver than I to give it a try, please tell us how it turned out.
Quick Corned Beef Hash Loaf
1 1 pound can corned beef hash
1 tablespoon bacon fat, melted
1 tablespoon catsup or mustard
Remove both ends from can of hash; using one end push hash out in one piece. Cut hash in half lengthwise; then place the 2 pieces in a 9 inch pie plate. Combine bacon fat and catsup or mustard; brush hash with this mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
