Hello Joyce,

I cannot find a recipe or a copycat for Fritzburgers. However, I found this on a message board:

"The Fritzburger is a patty form of the Balkan sausages known as both cevaps, chewaps and cevapcici.It's not all beef but may have pork and veal also. It's served open faced with a grilled Italian roll, feta cheese, peppercinis, kosher pickle and plenty of crinkle cut French fries."

I do have cevapcici recipes on my site. See:

Subject: ISO Recipe- Meatloaf in crust

I've been looking for a meatloaf recipe that I lost several years ago. It was from a 
Ladies Home Journal/Redbook or Family Circle magazine from the late 60's or very early 
70's no later then 1974. It had chopped dill pickle & white bread in it. The crust wasn't 
as short as a pie crust recipe but it was very soft and tender and easy to work with. 
I hope this helps.
Dyin' for the meatloaf,

Hi Sandy,

Sorry, I had no success with this. I'll put it on the site, maybe a reader can help.


Bill sent this recipe, but it doesn't have chopped dill pickle.

My name is Wild Bill

Here is  a recipe for meat loaf with a crust

Crusty Meatloaf

1 1/2 lb Ground beef
1 Egg
1/4 c Catsup
1/4 c Fresh bread crumbs
2 TB Chopped fresh parsley
1 TB Onion powder
1 1/2 ts Dry mustard
1 1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Pepper
3 Hardcooked eggs; shelled
1 c (4 oz.) grated cheddar cheese
1 pk (10 or 11 oz.) pie crust mix for 2 crust pie
1 Egg beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In large bowl, mix first 8 ingredients. Pat
Half the meat mixture evenly into 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Place the
Hardcooked eggs down center. Cover with remaining meat and pat firmly. Bake
30 minutes. Remove from pan and cool. Reduce oven temp to 375 degrees.
Meanwhile stir grated cheese into pie crust mix. Add water as directed on
Label. Form pastry into ball. Pat slightly and roll out with rolling pin
Between 2 sheets of waxed paper into a 13 x 12 inch rectangle. Peel off top
Sheet of waxed paper. Place meatloaf, lengthwise, on one 12 inch side of
Pastry. Wrap crust up and over meatloaf and peel off waxed paper. Pinch
Seams to seal and tuck seam under meatloaf, moistening with water if
Necessary. Fold each end under; trim if needed, moisten with water to seal.
Cut designs from scraps; moisten and press onto crust. Cut vents in top.
Brush with egg if desired. Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for
35 minutes or until crust is brown. Serve hot, or cool to room temperature
And refrigerate to serve cold.

Makes 12 (3/4 inch ) slices

This recipe is from an old magazine. I enjoy serving it to the family or
Guests. I have used another favorite meatloaf recipe also and then followed
These directions for the crust, and it turns out very well. ( It looks very
Unusual when you slice it and find the egg in the center!) Also, I have
Left the boiled eggs out sometimes, and just made a meatloaf with the

DQ Footlong Hot Dog Sauce

For years the Dairy Queen in downtown Jasper, Alabama had a foot long hot dog sauce that 
was different than the other Dairy Queens'. The sauce was ketchuppy. The footlongs were 
known around the whole county. The rumor was that it was a secret recipe that the owner 
of the franchise had.  Now the store downtown is closed and so (just recently) is the one 
that replaced it on the 78 Highway. I really don't think the recipe made it to the newer 
one that just closed.  'Reckon you can find this recipe? I'd sure hate to see it lost. 


Hello Rob,

Sorry, I had no success finding anything at all about this. Your best bet is to locate a former DQ employee and get it from them.
