I made this tuna rarebit recipe. Mine didn’t turn out well.
Less than five minutes of mom showing her daughter how to feed guests with a sandwich and some accouterments.

Sally Gasco (short for “gas company”) and her mother make tuna rarebit for their young boy guests. Thanks to their gas stove, this process is quick and easy.
This short features both the mother, daughter, and kitchen from “A Date With Your Family.” As well as a “recipe” for tuna rarebit (which for some reason didn’t catch on and become a cultural phenomenon). Measurements are usually good when it comes to recipes, I’ve found. The only clues we get here are the size of a hunk of butter, a can of tuna (guess in the Fifties if you wanted tuna you bought that one size can that was offered to you and you were happy about it, damn it!), some fraction of a cup of milk and an unidentified amount of Mystery Cheese. Apparently cooking with gas had something to do with all of this.
