The Conners' Loose Meat Sandwiches: Take a Trip Back to the '90s With This Nostalgic Sandwich Recipe

Who doesn't love The Conners? I won't get into why "Roseanne" was canceled, but during the show's fifth season, Roseanne and her sister, Jackie, opened the Lanford Lunch Box and served their famous loose meat sandwiches. 

During that season, I cut out a recipe for Roseanne's loose meat sandwiches from a local magazine and started making them for my kids. On nights when we had karate, baseball practice, acting lessons, gymnastics and Girl Scouts, this recipe was a lifesaver – quick and kid-friendly. This sandwich is about to find its way back into the recipe rotation again.

You'll need:

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a skillet, cook the ground beef until almost brown.
  2. Add the onion soup mix and water. Cover and continue to cook until meat is done and water has evaporated. 
  3. Serve on hamburger buns with optional toppings.
