Gooey Buns RecipeI am looking for a recipe from the 1950s or 60s. They were called "Gooey Buns" and contained cubes of ham, hard boiled eggs, cheese (Velveeta?) and some other ingredients? Then the mixture was placed in hot dog buns, wrapped in foil and baked in the oven until melted and gooey.

It is just as good as you think, and it's low fat, too. It will melt in your mouth, but only if you can resist chewing it."
