There's a restaurant in Plattsburg,New York,that would ride our motorcycle to, just to have their Michigans. It must of been a secret sauce and handed down from owner since 1959. So my husband and I thought we'd try to make our own version of it with the taste we could come close to theirs. And we are satisfied that we came close to our favorite spot to have Michigans and not leave home : )
