In-N-Out Cheeseburger

   I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing Memorial weekend. Ours was great! We took the kiddos to Las Vegas on Saturday. We spent the day shopping, eating, and hanging out. The best part was when we took them to the Mandalay Bay hotel. They have a shark reef inside that is filled with all kinds of exotic sea creatures. A golden crocodile, sea turtles, jelly fish. And of course sharks! eeek!! It was neat. The kids had a blast, so I was happy.    For our Memorial Day barbecue today we fired up the grill and made us some homemade In-N-Out burgers! YUM! I ♥ that place. I would eat there everyday if my arteries wouldn’t clog from all the cholesterol, and my butt grow bigger from the fatty goodness. But yes, we do like to eat there every once in a while. Their cheeseburgers are thee greatest! This copy-cat version are delicious and close to the real thing. :)

  3. 1 small yellow onion, grated (about 1/2 a cup)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  6. 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  1. TO MAKE SECRET SAUCE: Mix all of the ‘secret sauce’ ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. DIRECTIONS FOR BURGERS: In a large bowl, add ground beef, egg white, grated onion, worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt and pepper. Using your hands or a fork, gently mix together. Shape mixture into 6 thin patties. Place patties on grill or skillet and cook until no longer pink on the inside. About 3-5 minutes per side. Place one piece of american cheese over the burgers during the last minute of grilling.

    I love Vegas! I’ve been out there twice now, and still haven’t made it to In N Out Burger unfortunately. If that sauce is anything like Big Mac secret sauce I’m sure it’s amazing!

    I grew up eating In N Out and I was thrilled when they put one in where I live in Texas! Thank goodness… I’d really missed them!

    I love a good burger from the grill. And this “special sauce” sounds good. Looks like I’ll be giving this one a try this weekend! Thanks for sharing :)

    I’ve never had an In-n-Out burger. But this looks so good, your presentation is gorg! We have been grillin out lately and I love a good grilled burger. Definitely trying this one!

    Never had In & Out but I tried these. I don’t eat beef very often so I did make these with ground turkey (I bet the beef would have been so tasty). It was still flavorful and juicy. The sauce was nice, like a thousand island dressing flavor. My husband asked for seconds. My kids tried it (that was a miracle to see them eating anything other than PB & J, haha!) and seemed to really like it. My only thing is I despise grating onions but it really made the burgers juicy and yummy so it was worth it. I will make these again, a great burger recipe to have on file. Thanks Holly!

    Oooh, I can’t wait to make these! I love In-N-Out, but when I moved up to Canada 12 years ago I was sad to see they don’t have it here. : ( I’ve always made the spread to put on my burgers though. I’d always order extra spread on my burger. Love it!! Now I’m happy to see I can recreate the actual flavor of the burger itself. Now it needs to warm up and stop raining so I can bbq.

    Thanks for the recipe. I found your blog on Pinterest and will be following you there and on FB!

    Looks great, cuz! I’ve also tried a 50/50 mix of thousand island and french salad dressings together with sauteed onions. Not as fancy, but it’s dang good too! Nom nom nom!

    I was about to comment on the best rolls recipe on Weekend Potluck when I saw this: My husband and the boys are In-N-Out fanatics! The closest one is 2 and 1/2 hours from here. I’m going to make these and see if he notices………now, if I could just get the french fry recipe! :) Thanks.

    Looking forward to making these soon, maybe this weekend. We now live in Oklahoma. My hubby wears his In n Out shirts frequently. People often ask if their burgers are really as good as people say. Yes, yes they are! Maybe this recipe will prove it?

    This recipe lives on…I found it on Pinterest when I was looking for something interesting to do with hamburgers. My husband and I both love In & Out, but live in Oregon…no such burgers up here :)

    Anyway – made these last night and they were fabulous! Hubby had to restrain himself from grabbing another one :) I used 2 lbs. of organic grass fed hamburger, doubled all the seasonings and made larger, thicker patties so they wouldn’t shrink up. I cooked them on our indoor grill, and they were juicy & delicious. I think the grated onion really puts the flavor over the top, and we love that special sauce!

    I’ve saved the pin to my “Best Recipes” board – thank you for sharing it!
