Easy and Delicious. This comes from my Cooking Down East cookbook. I probably use it more than any other cookbook I own.

How to Make Honky Tonk

  2. Slice up the onions, or use one onion if you wish, and lightly brown in about a tablespoon of oil.
  3. Add the hamburg to the pan with onions and break up and cook until brown.
  4. In a double boiler, put the cream of mshroom soup and the cheese, which has been cubed (I use velveeta sometimes).
  5. When the cheese is melted, add the onion and hamburg which has been drained.
  6. Add the macaroni and then the tomatoes (I use the ground peeled)with the liquid and mix together.
  7. Pour all into a greased casserole dish.
  8. Melt the butter and mix with the crumbs. Sprinkle all over the casserole.
