No idea what magazine this came from, and no idea who Muriel might be... but this recipe reached recipe box card status. Let's give it a go:

2 green peppers, sliced thin
1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup bread crumbs

  1. Just recently I came across the same recipe handwritten in an old cookbook vintage 1960's. I seem to remember that Muriel is Muriel Humphrey, wife of Hubert Humphrey, wife of the former Vice-President and that this recipe was published in Parade magazine. Your recipe matches mine exactly--I plan to test it later this week and let you know the results!
