If you are traveling in the Springfield area and want to try a horseshoe, the best ones are found at Dublin Pub, Darcy's Pint, Westwood's Lodge, and Maldaner's. These restaurants have the best cheese sauce. Horseshoes and Ponyshoes (made with 1 slice of bread) are typically made with ham, hamburger, bacon, chicken breast or turkey. At home it's a great way to use leftover ham, chicken or turkey.
