The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello and happy November to everyone.

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday.   Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

Today's recipe for Bumsteads, as in Dagwood, the cartoon guy.  Dagwood was notorious for building huge sandwiches with a variety of ingredients.  Lois' version of Bumsteads were not quite as tall as his, but more elaborate than a normal bologna sandwich. They sound great! Lois' note says that she got this recipe in 1975 from Mary Lou.

Lois Elaine's Bumsteads:

1 7-oz. can of tuna
2 T. chopped onion
3 chopped hard-boiled eggs
2 T. chopped olives
1/4 pound cubed cheese
1/2 c. mayonnaise

Mix all together and put into 6 or 8 hot dog buns.  Put in baking pan and cover with foil. Bake at 250 degrees  for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
