If you remember the old “Roseann” TV show and Roseann Barr’s marriage to Tom Arnold, you may also remember their plans to build the “Big Food Café” near Ottumwa, Iowa which would feature “loose meat” sandwiches. That’s a MaidRite but without the copywrited name.
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 can reduced sodium chicken broth
This is a great “quick” meal and is a departure from burgers or sloppy joes. It’s minimalist. If you want, use dinner rolls or find smaller “cocktail” rolls to use rather than hamburger buns. Because this is a “loose meat” sandwich without a clumpy sauce, your going to have a bit of spillage from the bun so have forks or spoons available. And, for a bit more fun, put some shredded cheese or a slice of American cheese on it. Plus, pickles and mustard are great on Maid-Rites but never, ever put ketchup on one!
(Please excuse the photo, I had my aperture set wrong). And if you like the tray, go to EBay and look up TexasWare tray. We love them and I also have a set of TexasWare mixing bowls too.
That’s the Cheap Bastid way: Eat well. Eat cheap. Be grateful.
