Have you been to Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers? We have 7 locations here in the Cincinnati area - and one happens to be right down the road from me in Milford! Some of my favorite things about Freddy's are:

- high quality food - they don't cut corners and use great, fresh ingredients!
- they're owned by the folks from the movie The Blind Side!!! (Yes - the Tuohy's!)
- the frozen custard is decadent! And you can take some home or get Oreo cookie sandwiches with it packed in the middle!
- they have the best hot dogs! I love their Chicago dog!
- you can order any of their sandwiches Keto style with a lettuce wrap instead of a bun
- you can take home Freddy's Fry Sauce or their Steakburger & Fry seasoning for yourself! If you buy a $25 gift card this holiday season, you can take home of them for yourself!
- kids kids kids - Kids love Freddy's as much as Freddy's loves kids! They have family night every Tuesday with balloons, coloring pages and more! Plus there's a reading program!

On my last visit - I tried their December special, the A1 Chop House Steakburger! It's two patties - made Freddy's way, topped with white cheddar, grilled onions & mushrooms and then topped with their A1 Chop House sauce! OMG - it was sooooo good! See those crispy edges on the burger?! I can tell you how to get them!!!

So - the burger is really the trickiest part of the equation. First - make it on a griddle - it's easier to get all around the burger and cook 4 at once! Then when you're using the spatula to flatten the burger - you put pressure on the edges of the burger. You sort of roll the spatula around the edge. This gets the edges thin and crispy - but the middle stays thicker!

I'll admit - the crispy edges are not easy to perfect - but I did a pretty good job. I absolutely loved this burger!!! I drenched it in the A1 Chop House sauce! I tasted the sauce and knew I needed to use all of it! I also like really the white cheddar - it's a very mellow flavor - but if you have Swiss that would be great too! (Swiss & Mushrooms are always a good combo)

I served my Copycat Freddy's A1 Chop House Steakburger with a side of skinny fries and some of the yummy Freddy's Fry Sauce. I like the regular fry sauce - but you can also get Jalapeno! You can get the sauce or seasoning the next time you stop by Freddy's and take them home so you can make this at home!

  1. The edges on that burger look amazing! I just got a new stove top with a griddle. I'm definitely going to try to replicate the burger. Great job describing how to get the edges - fingers crossed I can do it! YUM!

  2. I'm obsessed with the really crispy edges on burgers like this! For your next copycat recipe can you do Steak N Shake? :)
