Every time we visit Springfield, Illinois we have to eat one of their famous horseshoes. The cheese sauce is a little different depending on where you stop to eat, seems everyone has their own way of making it. But we love them all. If you only use one slice of bread and one hamburger patty it is called a ponyshoe. This recipe can also be made with chicken tenders in place of the hamburger patties.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread french fries out on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, divide the ground beef into four equal parts and form into patties. Fry the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat until well done, about 4 minutes per side.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and whisk in the flour. Cook while stirring constantly for 4 minutes to cook out the flavor of raw flour. Gradually whisk in the half-and-half so that no lumps form. Bring to a simmer then remove from the heat and add the cheese; stir until melted. Season with salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste.
  4. Place 2 slices of toasted bread onto 2 dinner plates and top each slice with a hamburger patty. Top each patty with cooked french fries. Pour the cheese sauce on top of everything and serve immediately.

I submitted this recipe and since then have used another cheese sauce that I like better. Saute in 6 Tbsp butter, 1/4 of a onion chop fine and 1/4 of bell pepper chop fine. I cook it in a double boiler to keep cheese from burning. Add 1 1/2 cups water, pound of velveeta chopped, and to thicken sauce dissolve Tbsp cornstarch in cold water and add to sauce. With this sauce if you have any leftover its good as a dip for chips.

I made this tonight and it was really good. The cheese sauce was superlative. I used cayenne instead of hot sauce because I prefer its kind of heat, and I added a splash of worchestershire sauce. Also, I mixed some garlic powder, Lawry's season salt and pepper in with the meat because I don't like the taste of plain, unseasoned ground beef. That's just personal preference and no reflection on the recipe. My husband refused to let me put his french fries on top of his meat, so I served them on the side. But we did pour the cheese sauce all over everything. This was very filling and good. I'll be making this cheese sauce for other things as well.
