Amazing! I've been trying to find out how Steak 'n Shake gets their thousand dressing to taste so much different (and so much better) from the store-bought variety for ages. It's so simple, yet I could never have figured it out on my own. Without this key ingredient, a frisco melt isn't quite a frisco melt. Very happy I found this. Thanks!

We make something similar to this at the lil hometown restaurant I cook at, We call ours a rye burger, its chipped steak,sauteed onions on rye bread with american cheese no sauce though, i might have to make one with the thousand island and ketchup deal and see how that works out. Yours sounds delicious though thanks for sharing

Not terrible, the burger is built right, but the sauce is off... it needs some French dressing combined with the thousand island to achieve that classic sweetness the steak n shake Frisco is known for. Specifically it's 3 parts thousand island 1 part French.

Working at Steak n Shake has been a long time family tradition, with 2 years experience for myself, and I can say that this is not the recipe for their Frisco sauce. It does have thousand island, but rather than ketchup, it has French dressing mixed in with it.

These hamburgers were excellent. I don't know if the taste like Steak 'n Shake (I have never had one), but it is a nice change from a normal hamburger on a bun.

Delish! Made these tonight, but combined lean beef and turkey and grilled it. Toasted the bread, but did not dip in butter, and only used one patty. It was still fantastic and will be on my list to make again!

Yep.. This was it! Made these for dinner last night as this is the only menu item I ever order at the restaurant. I was so excited to try these and was not disappointed. This is actually the closest "copycat" recipe I have ever tried on Zaar.. Now, if I could just perfect the fries!Bravo and thank you for posting! Will make often!
