There is nothing better than a juicy cheeseburger, slathered with homemade thousand island dressing, surrounded by crispy, grilled sourdough bread…..aka Frisco Burgers…..
Do I have your attention yet? It is kind of amazing to me how many of my favorite foods, including these Frisco Burgers, are from the “original” Marie Callender’s menu! Back in the day, they had the BEST burgers…anywhere. They used to grind their own meat, bake their own bread, make their own thousand island dressing.
Then Don Callender sold the restaurant and everything went to hell! You guessed it, everything now arrives in jars and boxes on the back of a huge truck. It’s such a shame that corporations feel the need to do this, profit margins over quality. Even the pies are frozen and shipped to the restaurants 🙁 So yes, you may as well go to the frozen food aisle in your local grocery store to buy your pies…and they’re cheaper! Thankfully I took notes, and I can recreate all of my favorites at home! Okay, enough about that…are you ready to make some Frisco Burgers?
Divide ground beef, and shape into ovals or rectangles based on the shape of your bread. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook in a large skillet…..
When second side of burger is almost cooked thru, place cheese slices on top of each patty and allow to melt…..
Butter one side of each slice of sourdough bread. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan, and place in a different skillet. Cook until golden brown. The cheese might stick to the bottom, don’t worry…..
Spread thousand island dressing on the non-grilled side of the sourdough bread, and place cheeseburger patty on top…..
Top each burger with lettuce, tomato and onion slices…..
Place second slice of sourdough on top, and serve…..
I served my Frisco Burgers with Baked Potato Wedges.….
and topped them with my very own Thousand Island Dressing…..
So delicious!! What’s your favorite type of burger?
