Hearty meat and potato lovers in your family will be happy to indulge in the Horseshoe Sandwich. Our recipe used the classic ham steak, but hamburger patties are a popular alternative. Even though the sandwich is topped with a homemade cheese sauce, the blue plate special only takes 30 minutes to make.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
