So So Seventies

July 24, 2017

I find old recipes like this one from Gourmet, August 1977, irresistible. When was the last time you read instructions that told you to moisten slices of white bread and then roll them out thin before deep-frying.  So seventies!

As for this old ad, it pretty much speaks for itself….

    I LOVE this Ruth, thanks for sharing. I’m sure my mom made this for a party- I sort of remember it 🙂

    Irresistible enough to actually cook them? I’ll bet not.

    (But are they really any sillier than the way we now fetishize things like S’mores and Rice Krispie Treats, a la Tosi?)
