Burger Mix

  • 8 ounces ground round
  • 4 ounces ground sirloin
  • 4 ounces ground chuck

Seasoning Mix

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Frisco Sauce

  • 1/2 cup thousand island dressing
  • 1/2 cup French Salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Sandwich Ingredients

  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese


  • In a medium-sized bowl combine the ground round, ground sirloin, and ground chuck. Combine and mix. Allow meat to rest about 10 minutes in the refrigerator before forming 4 - 4-ounce balls of meat. 
  • While the meat is resting combine the salt, black pepper, onion salt, and garlic salt in a small bowl. You will use this burger seasoning on the burger. 
  • Prepare the Frisco sauce by combining the thousand island dressing, French salad dressing, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. 
  • Preheat the griddle to 375 degrees, if you do not have a griddle I suggest that you use a large cast iron pan. If you have a large griddle butter 4 pieces of bread on one side, and allow the bread to toast on the griddle while the burger cook. If you do not have a griddle you may want to toast the bread on one side in your skillet before you cook the beef.
  •  Once the cooking surface had heated up fully place the meatballs onto the skillet. You will need to press the burgers into thin patties. Use a spatula to press the burgers into thin patties. Season with the burger seasoning. These burgers cook very quickly 2 to 3 minutes on the first side. Once the edges begin to brown flip the burgers and season them again. Place the 4 slices of cheese onto the meat patties. They will need to cook for another minute or two before they have cooked through. 
  • To build the burgers spread the Frisco sauce on the untoasted portion of the bread liberally. Build your burger starting with a piece of the toasted bread, and then place a meat patty topped with Swiss cheese, and then one topped with American cheese, and top with a piece of toasted bread.
