Vintage 1955 CANCO Breakfast Ad

This vintage recipe is from a 1955 ad from the American Can Company. According to the ad, "Better breakfasts begin with food from Canco cans... try this Berkshire Breakfast and see! If it comes in a Canco can - it comes to you at its best!"

From this same classic ad, also see a recipe for Deviled Corn Cakes.

This retro recipe is easy to prepare using store-bought biscuit mix and canned cranberry sauce. It calls for canned almonds, but regular chopped almonds will work. From a 1955 advertisement for the American Can Company.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
