I went to a high school in Springfield, Missouri. My parents knew one of the cooks in the system. This is the recipe she gave us (scaled down, of course)! It's pretty close!
School Boy Sandwiches
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion--chopped
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 1/4 Tbsp. Williams Chili Powder
1 - 2 Tbsp. sugar
1 - 2 Tbsp. catsup
Brown beef & onion; drain. Add other ingredients and simmer 30 minutes. Serve on buns with French's mustard spread on one side. Yum!
My aunt worked in the school cafeterias in Springfield, Mo. in the 60's. This was the recipe she gave to me. Of course it was a school so sometimes they substituted when they had to. I will put subs in parenthesis.
1 to 1 1/2 lbs. hamburger
2 tablespoons dehydrated onion
1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 can tomato paste ( tomato sauce or ketchup )
1 tomato paste can of water
breadcrumbs to thicken
Cook hamburger and onion in 1/4 cup water. When meat has browned add seasonings. Cook on low for about 15 to 20 minutes. Add enough breadcrumbs to thicken. ( My aunt also said that they buttered the buns and wrapped them in foil and heated them in the oven. )
I hope this is what you are looking for.
Thanks so much for the recipe. I'll try it!!!!
