Is Someone Chopping Onions in Here?

If you put onions in the freezer 15 minutes before you chop them, you’ll reduce the spray of vaporized onion oils – which means your eyes won’t tear when you cut the onions.

2 lb. ground beef
2 to 3 stalks celery, chopped
Green pepper, chopped
Onions, diced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can sliced mushrooms
2 eggs
Dash of garlic salt
Dash of pepper
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 c. breadcrumbs
2 loaves of day-old bread

Brown the beef until cooked through. Add the celery, green pepper and onions. Fry until tender. Put bread aside and add remaining ingredients to the mixture. Cut circles in slices of bread. Butter one side of the circle and place buttered side down in muffin tin. Fill with meat mixture and bake at 350 F until brown (15 to 20 minutes).
