Interesting... Do you make these at home or are you allowed to eat them only in Illinois?

Rebecca said...

GASP!! They have recipes!!

Wow... I just noticed I have my own heading!

Beth said...

I've never made them at home; the french fry part is what stopped me from trying because we don't have a deep-fryer. Maybe oven-fried fries would work...hmmm...

Yep, you get your own heading, you're in the big time now. :)

I kept thinking your original horseshoe description sounded better than I remembered... now I know why: the ones you ate didn't have that NASTY sauce, or at least you didn't mention it!

When you add that slop, it completely sogs-out the fries. Joni and I had horseshoes at the Red Coach Inn, and they were just nasty - the fries were right on top of the burger, beneath a bath of slime and cheese.

I've never eaten another one...

Is there a technical name for the "slop" to which you are referring? Does it happen to resemble chili or would it be an odd color, like green?

Jim said...

That'd be the Welsh Rarebit sauce, although it seemed almost like a weird Hollandaise variant on the 'shoe we had.

Beef, cheese, and fries... now, that sounds like something that could stand on its own. :)
