    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!

    Recipe #87075

    The mayonnaise in place of the butter makes the bread toast evenly and gives a similar yet different crispiness. This is how they made it on the grill at a diner I used to frequent, the kind where the grill is behind the counter and you can watch. CAUTION: using low fat or no fat mayo or even miracle whip will change the outcome of the final product, the first 2 contain water and the second sugar that does not act in the same manor as an oil or fat sub.

    Recipe #108522

    This is one of the best recipes I've come up with for beef roast. The cheapest cuts come out tasting like you slaved over a stove all day long. You can add potatoes and carrots to the recipe if you like, or shred it and serve it as a French Dip sandwich with the au jus juice from the crock pot on the side. If you are watching your sodium, use the lite soy sauce and it will taste just as delicious.

    Recipe #103403

    From my Family Recipe Box, Mom loves this sandwich! "This sandwich is a 'smashing success'... in more ways than one. It's a great traveler." You must admit, it is pretty amusing. :) From the Family Recipe Box, dated 3/1/85. The sandwich keeps well, chilled, and is good for taking along on picnics and camping trips.

    Beer - it's not just for drinking any more!

    Recipe #22210

    Bennigan's makes the most awesome Monte Cristo sandwiches. A great break from the usual toasted ham & cheese.

    A great brunch item! One of my husbands favorite filling, baked, french toast style, sandwiches filled with cheese, ham, turkey & mustard. Raspberry preserves is a must for him. Could be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is a LESSER FAT Monte Cristo recipe being baked and not fried full of flavor! I also like to buy the low salt cold cuts or use fresh baked turkey leftovers sliced thin.

    Leftover beef roast? Not anymore, here is a quick and easy way to use up that roast.

    Recipe #28799

    This is *the* ultimate sandwich for leftover roast beef, I also make this using thinly sliced leftover steak, you may adjust all amounts as desired, the amounts listed should make 6-8 sandwiches depending on the amounts used in the sandwiches --- I suggest to use crusty buns for this, they will hold the sauce better :)

    Recipe #148012

    A delicious sandwich that you will make again and again. It is wonderful with Recipe #101980 and other soups that don't have meat. These can be grilling while the soup is heating.

    Recipe #102070

    I love to serve these burgers up on a hot day! I enjoy turkey burgers much more than beef burgers. :-) For a jucier burger, try not to use the leanest ground turkey. The leaner the turkey, the drier your burgers will be.

    Recipe #67275

    These burgers are very moist and are easy to make. Everyone I've made these for always love them. Hope you do too!!

    Recipe #108601

    A delicious sandwich made by a local deli.

    Recipe #86350

    Something different for a change ,simple too.Good on toasted hamburger buns. From Home Cooking Magazine.

    This is a different kind of meatless patty that is easy to make and quite tasty. It is cooked in the oven but I imagine it could be done on a BBQ as well.

    Recipe #91281

    This recipe uses those fake crabmeat "sealegs" you find in the grocery store. I can hear the purists out there groaning already. Fake crab is actually made with real fish, but seasoned to taste like crab. My daughter has a particular fondness for sealegs, and this is one of my favorite ways of preparing it for her. I don't think fake crab tastes much like real crab at all and highly recommend you do give real crab a try sometime. But for those times when you don't have any real crab, why not give this a try? It doesn't matter if you use "flake style" or "chunks" or "legs" in this recipe.

    This is your basic cabbage roll filling, but instead of wrapping in a cabbage leaf, you wrap it up in homemade bread dough. They're great warm or cold. Makes a great substitute for ho-hum sandwiches! We like 'em with spicy mustard spread on top. The recipe was given to me by a neighbor, years ago. I double the recipe so I usually get about 2 dozen filled rolls. Note: if you don't want to fool with homemade dough, hot roll mix works great.

    Recipe #50178

    Friday night delight....I like this with an ice cold, Grey Goose martini. From Firefly, a bistro-type restaurant in Chicago.

    Recipe #103135

    A fool-proof way to keep your corned beef from crumbling when you slice it! Wrapping it tightly when hot is the secret. Now you can cook corned beef that makes those lovely sandwich slices you get from the deli. It slices well with a sharp knife, but for perfection, use an electric slicing machine. Great for Reuben sandwiches!

    Recipe #67166

    A simple old snack a bit more special! Recipe comes from a magazine.
