Another Depression meal handed down. This along with Pop's Hamburger and Beans are meals we had as kids when EVERYBODY went to my Great Grandmother's house down the shore. It is VERY easy to make, VERY easy to stretch and VERY Good! It is a meal that does NOT look appetizing, but once you eat it you won't be able to stop. MOST people (oustside our family haha) have to be coaxed into trying it! People have compared it to Welsh Rarebit, but it really isn't close. Leftovers can be frozen for up to six months.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cut onions to your preference. My Father and daughter prefer big chunky onions, where my and I prefer minced.
- 2Boil water and onions until soft and clear.
- 3Add cheese a little at a time until melted. We use a mixture of soft and hard cheese.
- 4Make plenty of toast! Butter if you wish but it is really only added calories as you can not taste the butter.
- 5Scoop stewed cheese over toast and eat while hot!
- 6You can add as little or as much cheese/onion/water as you like. (Hence easy to stretch). If you like it thicker you can add cornstarch. You can also add ham if you like. I prefer it without the ham.
- 7Leftovers can be frozen for up to six months. Just reheat. More cheese and onions can also be added with each reheat.
