    I've chosen to submit this recipe because the recipes found on this website for loosemeats, and on other websites, are not the original recipe. The loosemeat was created in 1924 at Ye Old Tavern-now Gus' Family Restaurant on 14th and Jackson St. in Sioux City, Iowa. Nowadays you will find the original sandwich served at Bob's Drive Inn on Hwy 75, LeMars, Iowa just a mile or so out of Sioux City, at The Tastee Inn and Out, on Gordon Drive and at Miles Inn on Leech Ave. among others. If you see a recipe for loosemeats that contains tomato juice-run! A loosemeat is a sloppy joe without the slop-so stay away from anything tomato-ey please! These little sandwiches are great for football parties, slumber parties, with a cold beer on a sunny summer day, or just anytime you want a real taste of Americana cooking that takes just a few minutes with very little cleanup. These are typical Iowa tavern fare. I loved these sandwiches so much when I was a kid and one day I ran into my Grandma's tavern and asked for my usual "tavern". They always came served with a thin sheet of restaurant paper under them. I was so eager I ate my sandwich half way gone before I realized I was eating the paper too:-) After cooking these in the kitchen they were transferred to a portable steamer. This is the original recipe for the little dudes that were served in the Midwest. I cannot account for changes or differences in flavor for other regions of the country, east or west. I learned to make my Grandma's version when I came to spend summers with her in Sioux City between 1958-65. She's the reason I've become a diehard foodie, a "from scratch" cook. My Grandma was a fearless woman who wasn't afraid to tread in unfamiliar waters. In so many ways food brings people together. I had no idea these little sandwiches would be so loved and bring such happiness to people. I've been so touched by the messages I've received from folks who've tried this recipe and then shared their memories w/me! Thanks!! And thank you Recipezaar for creating a place for us to come together and share with each other!

    These are the main reason I go to the fair. I had to learn how to make them so I didnt have to wait for only once a year

    Recipe #49924

    I was born and raised in Philadelphia and this was my favorite lunch at the luncheonettes (sandwich shops). Places throughout the rest of the Country that claim to make Philly Cheese Steaks just do not get them to taste the same, and one of the reasons is that they do not use extra-virgin olive oil. Anyone who says that Pat's and Gino's in South Philly uses Cheez Wiz, is talking about the way they make it now. The old authentic way uses Provolone Cheese. Also, using deli roast beef is the same as using top round sliced wafer thin or frozen Rib-Eye roast shaved on an electric slicer. I was born in 1942 and this is the way they were made way back then. We are talking about authentic, not the way they are made now. If you make any changes with the ingredients or the directions, it will not be the same. Make it EXACTLY as written here.

    A sandwich that originated in Cuba! Yum! Adapted from Cooking Light magazine.

    Recipe #178556

    I can't believe I like this dish as much as I do. I was surprised. This is a variation of a rather bland scrambled egg mix that I found on the net but turning it onto an egg foo yung is really special. Add your own favorite things but this is a good start. If you add water chestnuts, ham, shrimp, pork, whatever- then you will have to adjust the cooking time. This is a basic recipe- make it your own. But an easy recipe to amend- as soon as the egg is set- then it is done! I really love this and it is so good for a family on a budget or a bachelor short on time. If you want a terrific egg foo yung sauce then try this one Recipe#45270 .

    Recipe #133513

    I love these. You can make them fancy for your next dinner party or simple for the kids. They are so fun to do and great to make a day or so ahead. You can use any fillings you like. I prefer hamburger meat but you could use anything from spinach to sausage. I haven't had luck in finding round wonton wrappers to I cut the square ones and then line my cupcake pan. When you are done layering you can pipe ricotta on top to make it look like a real cupcake....I don't do that and found it is just as good.

    Recipe #308716

    This comes from an old issue of Real Simple magazine. Shredding rotisserie chickens can be messy, but I think it is well worth the effort! The rotisserie chicken really adds a lot of flavor to this sandwich. But the real flavor will depend on what BBQ sauce you choose. Get creative!

    My kids call these Ham Packets. Great way to use up left over holiday ham or just ham you have on hand.

    Recipe #434959

    If you would like to make this all vegetables, skip the sausage and cook the vegetables with 1 pint grape tomatoes in 2 tablespoons olive oil.

    From the Bob Evans website, this recipe is quick and good. It's especially fast if you use leftovers potatoes. You can make this stove-top or in the microwave. I like to add cheese and some herbs then serve with salsa. Add anything that you like. Cooking time does not include the time to cook potatoes.

    Recipe #379102

    Easy and very flavorful. A unique twist on the same old tuna salad. Only 2ww points per serving!

    Recipe #278443

    So easy, so tasty. I keep the inexpensive packages of pepperoni on hand just for dressing up a normal grill cheese. You can use any cheese you have on hand, but DH and I like colby and american. Sauerkraught can also be added if desired as well as other bread types.

    Recipe #332093

    These sandwiches are great and easy to make on the grill. Top them with whatever condiments you like!

    Recipe #251547

    From Sargento. Feel free to sub the named brand cheese for regular parmesan.

    Recipe #452716

    From a TOH Entertaining cook-book I received from a TOH party. The cook-book is full of fabulous recipes:-)

    This sandwich is good for breakfast or lunch. The onions and red peppers keep this from being just another egg sandwich. I toast the bread while the onion and pepper is cooking.

    Recipe #444768

    I was in the nursing profession many, many, years ago. When the nursing staff was allowed to take a lunch break, I would meander down to our hospital cafeteria and order up one of these sandwiches. Of course, the cafeteria chefs had a special "seasoned grill" that punctuated years and years of cooking delectable delights, the way it used to be cooked, without the use of microwaves, and or already prepared, “boiled - in - the - bag” foods that came from “Sysco”. These amazing chefs even had special spatulas that you could easily imagine the pounding and flipping going on, being delicately tossed in the air, as somehow this made the food taste even more spectacular. After paying for the sandwich, I would sit down, and carefully open the wrapper, and inhale the aroma of freshly cut ham, the sweetest, most soft bread that I have ever known, and the mixture of ham juice and a bit of butter that warmed the ham prior to marrying with the bread. Needless to say, I always looked forward to this break, and on the occasion of visiting this hospital even today, I reflect back on those days of good ol’ cooking as it used to be, and the delights these very special chefs produced. To this day I still make these at home, occasionally for lunch or a quick dinner. After the cafeteria chefs put this yummy sandwich together they would wrap it in (1) wax paper (2) then aluminum foil. By the time you got to your table, the tastes had developed and probably steamed in the combination of wax paper and foil. Either way, I guess these magical chefs will never be forgotten as this made my day complete, every single day. I hope you enjoy this sandwich as much as I. Try the wax paper and foil too, [if you have time].....you will see what I'm talking about.

    Recipe #272233

    This is great as a main dish or an appetizer. You can change the ingredients to your liking, we prefer the pepperoni. Serve this with pizza sauce for dipping.
