It’s friday, and by gosh, we are going whole hog. eerr cow.

That’s right, you and I need to have a candid conversation about steak and shake.

NOW, I don’t want to hear one bad word about this place, don’t ruin the glory form me. I just want to tell you that in the time I have known Brian Abraham, he has probably consumed over 100 frisco melts.
Is that ambitious, Brian?  Whatever, I call the shots on this little piece of the universe.  We’re calling it 100 frisco melts.

Now, it is about the WORST thing you can order for your system on that menu.  You think I am gross with the use of butter, you should see this crap coming out on a plate.

Stacked high with piles of beef, thousand island, buttered bread, and cheese.

Well, of course, it tastes like glory.  And of course, I was going to pull and Ina Garten and make my ‘jeffrey’ a memory based meal.

I tried to lock it up on the butter fat count – there is only so much you can do here.

Just let the cow sing you a butter lullaby.  And don’t fall asleep in your matchstick fries.

Frisco Melts

2 tablespoons thousand island dressing, recipe follows
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 lb ground beef
4 slices sourdough bread
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 an onion, diced
2 slices American Cheese
2 slices Munster Cheese

Form ground beef, onion, and a pinch of salt and pepper into 4 thin patties.

Cook in melted butter in a non- stick skillet and set aside.

While patties are cooking, sear the bread in another skillet. Butter both sides. Just do it.

Put ketchup on one piece of bread and thousand island on the other. Top bottom slices of bread with one slice of American cheese. Layer one beef patty on top of cheese, then a slice of Munster cheese, and the another beef patty.

Thousand Island Dressing

1 cup greek yogurt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons mustard powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon sweet relish

In a bowl combine yogurt, vegetable oil, tomato sauce, lemon juice, mustard powder, sugar, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until blended. Add onion and relish and whisk to combine evenly. Chill 1 hour.

Now if that doesn’t put a smile on your friday face (or make you gag), I don’t know what will!
