Hamburger Dressing

Years ago, a coworker of mine gave me this "dressing" recipe that he said his family enjoyed every year during the holidays.  It sounded very unusual and I have yet to actually make it.  But it's so unusual that I didn't want to "lose" the recipe, so I'm posting it here in hopes that maybe one of you have had something similar and will share your reviews with me.  I couldn't find anything similar on google, so there's no photo either.  But those of you who cook (and you know who you are - grin) can probably tell how this is going to taste by just looking at the ingredients ... which are ...


2 pounds hamburger
6 eggs, hard boiled
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup toasted bread crumbs
1 stick butter
1/2 can tomato sauce or one chopped tomato
salt and pepper to taste


Boil eggs; set aside to cool.   In a large skillet, fry hamburger until thoroughly cooked.  Drain.  Saute celery and onion together with 1 stick of butter.  Cooke rice.  Toast bread crumbs in a dry skillet, making sure not to brun crumbs.  In a large skillet, mix all ingredients together and season to taste.  You may want to add 1/2 to 1 cup of poultry stock so dressing won't be too dry.  Sutffing may be used to stuff a large turkey or chicken, or can be put in a casserole dish and heated through in a 350 degree oven.
