      I have the original recipe from the Leland Hotel and while this may be close... it's not quite it. Also, any self respecting Springfieldian would top the meat with the fries and THEN pour the cheese sauce over the entire sandwich. That's just how it's done. :)

      Being from Illinois, then re-locating to Nevada, I wanted to try to find a recipe close to the horseshoes I found back home. This is very close but the sauce is just a little too rich...go easy on the sauce when preparing plate. Otherwise, it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
