BLTTHEVTLL1 (ARK.) QDURIBR NEWS THURSDAY, MAY IS, 1954 Variety of Hamburger my CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor IF YOUR BUDGET benefits from frequent chopped-beef dinners, you'll want to add this tomato and meat ball to your hamburger repertoire. It is one of those budget and flavor wise dishes that is fine for a family meal. Easily and quickly made, too! The .meat balls are tangy with tabasco sauce; they have a pleasant soft texture because the liquid from a can of tomatoes, and soft bread crumbs, go into them. Rolled in a mixture of flour, salt, and paprika before they are browned, they have appetizing color. You use the rest of the can of tomatoes to make into a good rich gravylike sauce to serve with the meat balls and cooked noodles. When I prepare meat balls, I like to get them the same size. So what I do in this recipe is to take up level quarter-cup measure of the meat mixture, then shape two balls out of this amount. If you do this, you'll have about 18 meat balls out of this recipe. I find families differ in the amount of noodles they consume at a meal If your family are really big pasta eaters, you may want to double the amount of noodles called for in this recipe. Use any width noodle you like, from the fine to the wide. To cook the 4 ounces of noodles called for, heat 6 cups water with 1% teaspoons salt until boiling in a large saucepan; drop the noodles into the boiling water and boil nine to 14- min- ites, depending on how tender you like them. Stir the noodles occasionally so they won't stick, and drain them thoroughly in a colander as soon as they are ready. Double the amounts of water if you are cooking 8 ounces of noodles. but keep the boiling time the same. TOMATO MEAT BALL DISH One No. 2 can toma- By GAYNOR MADDOX IflEA Food and Markets Editor Paula Pogany Bennett was born In Hungary, a land of food-loving, lusty people.

Cover and cook slowly over low heat. Chop the bacon and fry in skillet; add the onions' and brown lightly. Stir in the paprika and salt; then combine with the simmering meat. Stir in the uncooked green peppers and continue cooking slowly for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender—not soft.
