I grew up in Holly In the 60's-70's. Does anyone remember the jiffyburgers at the Dairy King? Does anyone have a recipe? I have so many fond memories of the Dairy King!!! We used to even get to walk there for lunch in Elementary school with a parent's note!!

No but they still serve them in McCook, NE at a bakery there. The recipe got sold but I've been told that the bakery won't give it up though.

The Dairy King was owned and operated by Virginia Hoff in the 1960-70's. I worked for her for 5 years in the 60's.
The jiffy burger was made by adding a powdered seasoning which was purchased from a company that delivered products to the Dairy King, to browned hamburger. The seasoning was a fine powder of beef bullion and a seasoning kind of like Lawry's seasoned salt.

I grew up in McCook, NE where they used to serve the Jiffy Burgers at the local "Dairy Cream" when I was growing up. The Diary Cream has since closed and a former high school classmate of mines runs the bakery there which now sells the Jiffy Burgers. I have a recipee which is a version of the classic. If I can find it, I will post it out here :-)

Yes I would love this recipe. I have been so hungry for one of these. I grew up in McCook and peter's Dairy Creme had the best jiffy burgers in the world. Tonite I heard from my uncle in denver and we are planning a trip to McCook and he asked if peter's was still open cause he'd like a jiffy burger!!!

I lived in McCook from '63 to '61. Too bad I didn't know that was the last I would be able to get a jiffy burger. Am going to a recipe I found.

I grew up in Holly & also remember walking to the Dairy King (my mom only let me go on Friday's). I don't remember their last name but they were sisters & lived north of Holly. After they sold the business I was able to ask one of them about how they made their jiffy burgers, she said they used the drippings from the hamburgers they sold, plus ground beef, garlic salt & onion salt. Brown the hamburger, leave the grease/juice & add flour to thicken. You know that what makes them good was the pickle relish. I would get a jiffy burger everything with cheese (pay the 5 cents more) fries & a small Pepsi for 75 cents!
There is a fast food chain called Nuway or Newway (spelling?) that is very close to our original..nothing like the ones we had when we were kids though. What memories. Marlene

I know the complete history of the "Jiffy Burger." You can read about it here http://www.buffalocommons.org/story.php...
My folks sold the Dairy Creme in McCook and moved to Florida in 1957. We then moved back to Broken Bow, Nebraska (1958) and bought the Dairy Queen where we continued to sell the same sandwich but it was called the Tastee Burger. The Dairy Queen was owned by family members for the next 40+ years (the name was changed to the Dairy Corner at some time) before closing. My neice just recently opened a concession trailer that is located on the town square in Broken Bow and the sandwich is once again available. We are considering setting up a concession in Custer, SD where the Jiffy (or Tastee) Burger will be featured along with other items.
The sauce recipe has been a family secret for nearly 60 years.

Hi all,

Yep, we bought the recipe from the Wiemers family when they closed the Dairy Creme. We also purchased their equipment like the onion/pickle chopper. Still using it today. You can check out the jiffy story from the Sloggett family at http://www.buffalocommons.org/story.php...

The Jiffy is a McCook tradition and we are proud to be one more independent family business to serve this treat.
Sorry that I can't give the recipe. We are still paying for it....and just sent our first of three kids to college this year
Come see us in McCook!
Sincerely,
Matt Sehnert (son of Walt and Jean Sehnert)
ps...we have shipped the meat, sauce and buns to hungry people....along with cinnamon bread, peanut butter brownies, Christmas Stollen Bread.........
