      Great dish! Not to spicy for the younger set, but enough seasoning to appeal to everyone. Easy and quick to make, and a well stocked kitchen will usually have all the ingredients on hand. A great highschool football game night dish. My husband topped his with some grated cheddar cheese. Yumm! (If this posts twice, please excuse me. The posting gremlins are working overtime tonight. :)

      I try to be very fair and honest in my reviews and I'm being quite frank when I tell you I didn't like this recipe at all. It had a strange sugary taste, and it ended up in the garbage, I followed the recipe exactly. I've searched the net for loosemeat sandwiches and maid-rites as they are also known,and I have seen this recipe many times and in my opinion I don't think this one's even close to the real recipe.I don't think the sugar and tomato juice belong in this recipe. Check out Claire de Luna #58430 it is nearer to the real thing. My intent is not to be mean and sarcastic but I just thought this recipe didn't cut it. I am looking forward to trying one or more of your other dishes which I know will be probably be most delicious!

      Delicious and so easy! I made this yesterday and dh and I loved it. I didn't have any kitchen bouquet so I used liquid smoke instead. Also, I used 1/4 tsp. of cayenne and it was just spicey enough. I will be making this often for quick meals. Thanks for sharing!
