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!!!!! Later we learned to cook various recipes.

    Picture 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.
