I'm from Spfld, IL and have been making horseshoes for years - it's easy! The orig recipe by kehn is good, but I'm listing some additional tips. You can use any type of meat, and season the meat how you always would. Hamburger is most popular, but you can also use ham, grilled or breaded chicken breasts, crispy bacon, shrimp, Italian beef - it's up to you. (This is an excellent recipe for any leftover meat!) You also choose the bread (white, wheat, etc.), just make sure it's toasted. Make your favorite type of fries - we prefer the skinny straight ones. And because these are so filling, you can make a ponyshoe instead of a horse (one piece of bread instead of 2.) As listed in kehn's recipe, you're going to make a basic white sauce - I use 2 cups milk (you choose the type, they all work fine - skim, whole, half n half), 3 tbs flour and 3 tbs. butter. Once the white sauce is made, you're going to add a few things to make it the "horseshoe" sauce. First stir in 2-3 Tbs Worcestershire sauce, then (and this is a must!) stir in a DROP of real mustard (not dry mustard). Lastly stir in the cheese. I have friends who add 2-3 Tbs of Velveeta or Cheese Whiz to the sauce, but I use shredded cheddar, stirring until completely melted. (Use S&P to taste.) The original recipe by kehn is close, but you definitely have to add the Worcestershire sauce and the mustard to make it even yummier! I also agree with another reviewer that D'Arcy's Pint makes the best, so visit Spfld! :)
