Maid Rite Sliders

If you don’t live in the Midwest, you’ve probably never been to Maid-Rite, a chain of diners that stretches from Ohio to Iowa. And that’s too bad, because it means you’ve probably never experienced Maid-Rite’s classic “loose meat” sandwich.Maid Rite Sliders stacked on a plate

The loose meat sandwich isn’t exactly a hamburger, and it isn’t exactly a sloppy Joe. It’s kind of a cross between the two, with well-seasoned, browned ground beef served loose on a warm bun. You can get it either plain or with melted cheese. Maid-Rite fans swear by it – but since there are only 33 Maid-Rite restaurants in the whole country, most of us haven’t had the chance to try it.

    Great taste and easy to follow recipe. Planning to make again over Christmas break for my college student.

    1. So happy you loved it Kris. I hope your college student does too!

  2. I was born and raised in a city that had a Maid Rite shop. OMG! they are wonderful! I think the original recipe used chicken broth/bouillon, but i have always made them with beef broth. M-M-M. Think I will make them this week! Thanks for reminding me.

    Thank you for the recipe! I’ve never been to a Maid Rite:) This was very easy to make and turned out sooo delicious!

    1. So happy you loved them Julie!

  5. I modify this slightly. I skip the pickles and vinegar, use shredded cheese, only a third of a cup of butter, less water, more onion. I also take off the foil for the last 5 minutes. So delicious I have made it ~10 times including tonight, and my oldest son made it last night.

    1. Love it! So happy you love the recipe Kevin!
