Vintage Recipe Box 400 comes to us from Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

It is a large white metal box that measures 12” D x 5.5” W x 4” H and has a metal tag that says “American Home Menu Maker.” According to my research, the box was sold in multiple colors for $1 and included 212 “basic recipes” for an additional $.50. (See the image below, which is an order form to purchase the box.)

At this time, we do not know anything about the history of the box.

We do show that this box came to us with another box, but at this time, we are not sure if the same person owned them or if the eBay seller grouped them.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while, you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any, as I prefer the handwritten recipes you see on our site.

    Have the butcher cut 1½ pounds veal from the leg into 12 thin slices. Put the slices between sheets of wax paper and using a mallet or the flat side of a heavy knife, pound them until they are thin. Put a slice of Swiss cheese on 6 of the slices, cover them with a thin slice of ham, and top with the remaining 6 slices of veal. Pound the edges together to seal them. Dredge the packets in flour, dip them in lightly beaten egg, and coat them with fine bread crumbs. Saute the packets in heated butter for about 8 minutes, turning them once, until the meat is brown and the cheese is melted.
