One of the best parts of traveling home to Iowa (after seeing family and friends of course) is getting my fill of Maid-Rites. I grew up eating these sandwiches and still love them! Unfortunately there are no franchises in Kansas, at least not that I know of. These are the "loose meat" sandwiches always referred to on Roseanne. This trip I had at least one every day except Friday I believe. I eat these for breakfast, noon or supper, doesn't matter!
It's probably a good thing that we don't have any close to us, as I'd live there and weigh 500 lbs!
One of the secrets to their goodness (for me anyway) is that they are wrapped up, even if you are dining in. Then you need to let them steam a bit in the wrapper and squish them down so the bun is nice and soft and warm.
OMG, I'm already dying for another one but will have to wait until the next Iowa trip which will be way too long!
