Fast and easy.A 15 MINUTe recipe,
using your micro-wave oven.
Make the Joes, grill the buns,add some potato chips,a couple dill pickles and you have lunch for six people.
This recipe has been in my family since 1973.
I had one of the first micro-wave ovens, a large AMANA RADAR RANGE, that debuted in 1967 in CHGO. It was the only brand you could buy... for a few years. We purchased it in 1970, for $495.00
WE WOULD INVITE THE NEIGHBORS OVER, AND "Radar Range", 3-4 POUNDS OF BACON...for a taste testing party!!!!! Crazy...eh? Later we learned to cook various recipes. Nancy... 10/19/1

(except buns)Mix well.
2Cook covered on HUGH for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon onto bottom half of a grilled bun.
Top with the top half.

** NOTE: If you would like to use ground turkey,
the recipe remains the same, but then they
are called: "SLOPPY JOSIES" !!

and potato chips.
Most people will eat 2-3 !!!
ENJOY !
4Picture of the first AMANA RADAR RANGE..
.It had only two dials !
It was almost the size of your stove oven.!
We paid $495.OO in 1970 ! 40 years ago !!!
Now they are much cheaper and are called
MICRO-WAVE OVENS !
I have saved many, quick micro-wave recipes over the last 40 years. A boon to working moms, and people that live alone.
I will be putting a few on JAP....soon.
