Horseshoes and Banana Pudding

Last nights supper was horseshoes, fresh cucumbers and banana pudding.

Ah yes, horseshoes! How we love them. I know, you're think what the heck is a horseshoe that you can eat? Well, several years ago while watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Ferrari he went to this diner that served horseshoes. The diner had their own secret spicy cheese sauce. You can make up your own, buy queso or cheese dip.

There are several varieties of horseshoes. You can make them with chicken, burgers or breakfast. Our favorite is chicken, however we do love the breakfast ones as well.

If you don't like your food to touch or mix together like one of my boys, you will not want these. He eats the same thing we do, just separated on the plate and no gravy.
It is a pile on love fest of food.

Chicken Horseshoes

fried chicken strips (I won't give you a recipe for this because you know how to fry chicken strips)
french fries
gravy (your choice of chicken gravy,brown gravy, country gravy)
cheese sauce

You may a stack. Toast, chicken, fries, gravy, cheese sauce. Wa-la there it is.

Hamburger Horseshoes

Breakfast Horseshoes

toast or biscuit cut in half and laid out
eggs (cooked as you like, scrambled,fried,poached...)
sausage patty or bacon
white/country gravy
cheese sauce

Dessert last night was a wonderful cold don't get the house hotter than we have to sweet burst of flavor I like to call World's BEST banana pudding. Loved by one and all.

World's BEST banana pudding

2 cans Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (this is a must)
2 3/4 cups COLD water
2 boxes vanilla pudding, instant
1 large container Cool Whip
4 bananas
1 box Vanilla wafers

Line a large casserole bowl or baking dish with wafers, top and bottom. Crush a handful to fill in the cracks.
In a large bowl mix the milk and water until combined well. Add in the pudding mix one at a time. Peel and slice the bananas and add to the mix. Fold in Cool whip. Pour into the bowl. Top with more Cool Whip and a handful of  crushed wafers for garnish. Let this sit in the fridge for several hours so the flavors can marry.

Foodie Friends Friday


  1. You had me at Banana Pudding! When I was in my last months of pregnancy, I discovered Banana Pudding Ice Cream!

    I am like your son! I would have to have all of the items in different areas of my plate and the gravy on the side.

    I know you are a fellow FFF, but I wanted to say thanks for linking up!

  2. NEVER heard of Horseshoes. What a great idea, the ultimate comfort food. I could go for either of the 3 (although I'd do the breakfast one for dinner too). AND THEN you added dessert, Wow. One stop shopping here!
