Vintage Recipe From Creamettes

About a year ago, I shared one of my family's now traditional recipes based on Creamettes noodles. So it probably won't surprise you that I was quite smitten with this vintage package of Creamettes recipe cards.

 (As I wrote at Collectors Quest, the prices on vintage cookbooks are increasing, yet vintage recipe cards remain relatively affordable!)

These cards were still in their original envelope -- and no small wonder with what was printed upon it!

Here's one of the recipes:
Creamettes with Tomatoes
A well balanced dish which can be served as the main course or used as a vegetable. A particularly happy combination with all kinds of meat.
1 8-oz. pkg. Creamettes
1 medium sized onion 1/2 cup grated cheese
1 can tomatoes
6 strips bacon

Boil and chill the Creamettes as per directions on package. Put tomatoes through colander. Dice the onion and bacon. Fry until tender. Put a layer of the boiled and chilled Creamettes about one inch thick into a buttered bake dish. Add part of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with fried bacon, onion and cheese. Dot with butter and seaon with salt and paprika. Add one or two more layers until dish is full. Bake in hot oven 15 or 20 minutes.
I also love how the dish is shown served in one of those fancy silver serving dishes I'm often spotting at thrift stores for cheap! It makes me want to actually use one to serve a regular family dinner!
