Throwback of the House: Triple Play Warmer Is Not So Hot

The master of all advertising cookbooks, A Campbell's Cookbook: Cooking with Soup, spawned this recipe. I have the 1976 edition, the thirteenth printing. That's a hell of a lot of recipes with canned soup, and they can't all be winners like tuna casserole. The Triple Play Warmer, like 98% of the recipes in the book, wasn't created because it tasted good. It was created to sell as many cans of soup as possible.
There are better ways to warm oneself. Self-immolation, for example. Or wearing a leopard-print Snuggie.
I knew I was in trouble as soon as I opened the can of pea soup and the smell of canned ham hit me.
