“I lived in Central Illinois (Havana) for 10 years where I was introduced this regional cuisine. It's an awesome Saturday night dinner! Very quick and easy way to make the cheese sauce. Great for kids! Not great if you're on a diet! LOL! But very tasty and filling. There are other versions of this recipe on RecipeZaar and I thought that mine was different enough to share.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -6 hamburger patties
  • 10 12 ounces campbell's condensed cheddar cheese soup (10.5 ounces)
  • 12-1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (26 ounce) package French fries
  • 4 -6 slices bread


  1. Prepare meat patties and drain.
  2. Prepare french fries and salt lightly.
  3. Prepare the cheese sauce by pouring one can of condensed cheddar soup in a sauce pan. Add 1/2 can of water (or less, depending on how thick you want the sauce). Stir in 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce. Heat until bubbly, then remove from heat.
  4. Toast bread.
  5. Assembly each sandwich by stacking the ingredients: Toasted bread, meat, a good handful of fries, and top with a generous helping of cheese sauce.
  6. NOTE: We don't normally use the toast at the bottom of the sandwich. I feel that the fries add enough carbs to the meal, but the toast is the traditional way of making a horseshoe.
  7. I've made this with the nacho cheese sauce and a little less Worcestershire sauce for a different flavor.
  8. YUM!
