Ah yes, from one giveaway to the next! All month long is National Burger Month. Now that Brunch Week is over, we can give burgers the ever-loving attention they so rightly deserve. I have to say, taking a lot of cheese and dairy out of my diet has affected a lot of things. One thing it really hasn’t affected is burgers. If you have a good burger, it will be a good burger, with or without cheese. Now, you may argue the point, but i stand by my bold statement.
This recipe was originally my Mom’s and my Dziadzia’s (jah-jah, Polish for Grandpa). The original recipe is called a beef roll-up. It has thinly sliced meat wrapped around a slice of bacon, sliver of pickle, sliver of onion, and 1 french fry. And since I bastardize everything they ever make, I had to make some changes. I am going to say this is Mike’s fault though, not mine. He is the one that doesn’t like pickles or onions. How dare he, right?
I wanted to pump this burger roll full of fries. I love fries. No shame in admitting that.
Some have cheese, some don’t. Some have pickles, some don’t. The go-to burger seasoning totally makes these guys. I will leave the stuffing to you!

Burger and Fry Roll-Ups
- 1 Teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
- 1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
- 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Minced Garlic
- 1/2 Teaspoon Dried minced Onion
- Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
For the Roll-Ups:
- 1 LB Black Angus Top Round Steak Full Cut
- 9 Kosher Dill Pickle Spears
- 5 Slices of Cheddar Cheese
- a Handful of Cooked French Fries
- 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon Ketchup
- 1 Teaspoon Yellow mustard
First, combine all the dry seasonings in a small bowl and mix to combine.
Cut each slice of steak into 3 to 4 inch wide slices. Season each slice with a 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning mix. Place each slice between two pieces of plastic wrap. pound the meat very thin using a rolling pin or meat tenderizer.
Now time to stuff and roll. Place a half slice of cheese on top of the center of the slice of beef. Near one corner place a few french fries and a pickle spear. Roll from that corner to the opposite end. Continue until all the roll-ups are rolled. Season with a pinch more of the seasoning blend.
Roll-ups can either be grilled or broiled.
With your grill on medium/high heat, place the roll-ups seam side down and grill for 4 minutes on one side and then flip and cook for 3 minutes on the other side.
To cook under the broiler, heat a large cast iron skillet for 5 minutes under high heat. Carefully remove from oven. Place roll-ups on the hot skillet and return to the broiler for 7 minutes until cooked through and slightly crisp and golden.
Let the roll-ups cool for two minutes before slicing into them. While they cool, make the dipping sauce. Mix the mayo, ketchup, and mustard in a small bowl.
Use a fork and knife to cut the roll-ups and dip the bites into the sauce.
