After having made this recipe a few times, my mother suggested using liptons onion soup with the water. She said she worked at maid rite years ago and that is what they use. TRUST ME IT IS FABULOUS!!! We love it with the onion soup it really ups the taste!

Almost need another star for this one! I grew up in Iowa and my favorite place to stop after school for a snack was the local Maid-Rite. These sandwiches are just as I remember those lovely Maid-Rites.

Recipe as written would have gotten 4 stars, when you make one simple change, you can't give it anything less than 5 stars. Try this before you say, ewwwwww. Instead of water, use Coca-Cola, not diet, regular coke - superb.

These are the spittin' image of the famous Made-Rites you can find in Iowa. Whenever we drive down that way, we always make a special detour just so we can eat these. How cool to be able to make them at home now! My husband requests these almost weekly. You wouldn't think something so "plain" would be so tasty - but they really are - and so easy, too! I like to serve them with parmesan-herb roasted potato wedges and a crisp green salad. You can also use extra lean ground turkey if you want to go the healthier route, instead of the beef. I saute the onion a little bit first to eliminate "onion breath". You can wrap the burgers in waxed paper if you want, just like they do at the restaurant. It helps keep all the good stuff in! Thanks, Carlo - your wife got it just right!
