    Connie C.'s Note:

    Once upon a time in Philadelphia, in 1902, Joe Horn and Frank Hardart opened the first Automat in America with hardware they bought in Germany. Their very first automat was the one in Philadelphia, but the one that set the trend was the H & H that opened on Times Square in New York City in 1912. By 1939 there were 40 automats in operation. They were sort of like a cross between a vending machine and a cafeteria. You found the dish you wanted behind its glass door, put in coins, opened the little glass door, and took out the dish. But this was FRESH food, not the stuff one gets from food vending machines these days. People from all walks of life mixed and mingled at the H & H. If you were alone in the City at Thanksgiving, you could always have a great Thanksgiving dinner at H & H for a low price. When they closed their doors, they published some of their old recipes. This is one of them.

      I got this recipe from an American friend several years ago and use to make it regularily. Now I have this great story along with the dish - as a non-American I didn't know anything about those automats but find it most interesting :-) Thanks for sharing!
