During WWII there were many meatless recipes. Rationing took its toll on how America ate. This is one example from the “Why Evaporated Milk Makes Good Food Better” booklet published in 1942.
I wonder if the mixture could be fried instead of baked.
- 3 cups boiled beans
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1 small onion, chopped
- Bacon fat
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
- 1 cup evaporated milk
Mash beans. Add other ingredients and stir to blend well. Turn into a greased baking dish. Shape into a loaf. Bake in a moderate oven (375 degrees) about 45 minutes. Serve with tomato sauce. Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
This needs more seasoning, such as pepper and less salt.
