Have you ever eaten a Trumanburger?


From the Digital Library website at UC Davis: "Meat was rationed in the United States during World War II. During the last days of meat rationing in 1945-1946, the term 'Trumanburger' was coined. This dish, named after [then] President Harry Truman, consisted of a [fried] patty of mashed baked beans."

[via reader Joe Peach and John F. Mariani's 1983 book, "The Dictionary of American Food and Drink"]
