    Just like the resturants only you can make at home. I think they are worth making. Very good with pickles on top!

    And everything I've read about them says, "Don't use ketchup, even on the bun!"

    Maid-Rites originated in Muscatine, IA in 1926. They are delicious!

    Originated in Iowa, eh? Interesting bit of Maid-Rite trivia. Isn't it strange that we associate so much of our formative years with food? I can still smell the yeast bread and rolls my mother would make on wash days in the country (something about a warm kitchen for the rising, I guess) Thanks for the input.

    I was born in Marshalltown, Iowa, site of one of the very first Maid-Rites -- about a 10 minute walk from our house. You could live on these things, and for years that's pretty much what I did.

    They are very much like a sloppy joe without the sloppy. You use loose ground beef. My kids used to ask for "those loose hamburgers." Kind of messy, so you have to squeeze those buns tight when taking a bite. (hamburger buns that is) LOL

    I never heard of these before, but they sound interesting and different. Do you make patties or just loose ground beef?

    Now, if only they would move Steak and Shake restaurants to west of Missouri. I still dream about Steak and Shake hamburgers.
