  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread French fries out on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, warm the sliced turkey in a skillet set over medium heat. Divide turkey between two slices of bread. Place the slices of cheese in a microwave-safe dish and heat in the microwave until melted, about 3 minutes.
  3. Top the turkey with French fries then pour melted cheese over them. Top with the remaining slices of bread and serve immediately.

These were very good, we live about 45 miles from Springfield and go there often and love the different diners etc., and always buy horseshoes wherever we decide to eat. Some are better than others and unique in there own way. Some use turkey, ground beef etc., I have replicated them at home and they come out pretty good, I do make homemade fries though, just think they taste better. These are very good though, and thank you for the post.

This is nothing like the horseshoe sandwich we have. I live about 3 hours from Springfield, right on the Wabash river (IL side). Ours has bread on bottom, with a hamburger patty, fries, and cheddar cheese sauce poured over the top. It is not the exact original Horseshoe sandwich, but there should not be bread on the top, b/c it is meant to be an open faced sandwich.


I really enjoyed this! The ONLY thing is it's a little dry for my taste and needs some sort of condiment. Also instead of melting the cheese I put it on top of the fries on the sandwich and threw the whole thing in the oven a couple of minutes. Yum!
