Mix the ground beef and pork thoroughly. Use a food processor or blender to puree the Thousand Island dressing with the onion, cumin and garlic. Pour about half into the meat mixture. Mix thoroughly and shape into 6 patties. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Refrigerate remaining sauce.
To serve, grill the patties well. Brush the bread slices with the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder. Grill lightly (or use a sandwich press if you have one). Place each cooked patty on a slice of grilled bread. Mix the cilantro into the reserved sauce, spoon over the patties, add a layer of potato sticks, top with remaining bread slices and serve. Makes 6 servings.
