Steak 'n Shake Frisco Patty Melts

A double stacked patty melt complete with Frisco sauce makes for a brilliant copycat!

Fun fact: 2018 was the year I first tried Steak 'n Shake. It's not an absolute favorite or anything, but I definitely enjoy the atmosphere and they make pretty good burgers (and shakes). However, I definitely think the Frisco patty melt is a winner. In fact, Matthew got a Frisco Melt just mere days before I made this copycat for the first time, instead of going for something different. He was so happy to have it twice in a week because he enjoyed it that much. I can't say I blame him. The only thing that was different in my making of it was that I subbed the Swiss cheese for mozzarella because I'm not a big fan of Swiss cheese - and I don't think Nick is either. Not sure on the kids' feelings about it. I still have not had an authentic Frisco patty melt, but Matthew says it's really close, so I'll take his word for it!

What you need:
For the Frisco sauce:
  • 1/2 cup thousand island dressing
  • 1/2 cup French dressing
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
For the burgers:
  • 1 lb. ground chuck (per 4 patties - enough for 2 people)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Sourdough bread
  • Unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • Sliced American cheese
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese
  1. For the Frisco sauce: mix all ingredients together and chill in refrigerator.
  2. For the burgers: Form ground beef into 4 balls. 
  3. Place on a griddle set at 375 degrees or a cast iron skillet set on medium-high heat. 
  4. Using a spatula, press balls into thin patties, then immediately season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  5. Flip when edges begin to brown and season on the other side. Then place a piece of American cheese on two of the patties and a piece of mozzarella cheese on two patties.
  6. Meanwhile, spread butter on one side of each piece of bread and toast in a nonstick pan.
  7. Once burgers are done cooking, build your burgers by spreading Frisco sauce on each piece of bread, topping with a mozzarella-topped burger, then an American-topped burger, followed by another piece of bread.
Recipe from Copykat

I have an extensive section of copycats here on my blog because we love making restaurant food at home, including patty melts and burgers like this Copycat Applebee's All-in Brunch Burgers. I think these Diner-Style Patty Melts from The Hungry Bluebird look right up my alley, in particular, and would love to make them soon.
