Homemade In-N-Out Burger

I used to live in LA, and now I live in NYC. What do I miss the most about California? This. Burger.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, julienned
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 (4 ounces each) ground beef patties, flattened until thin
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 1 Martin's potato hamburger bun
  • 1/2 cup romaine, thinly shredded
  • 1 thick slice of beefsteak tomato

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 pickle, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a skillet, heat vegetable oil on high and caramelize the onions. Season with salt and pepper; cook until dark in color. Remove cooked onions when finished, set aside. DON'T clean skillet.
  2. Prepare the sauce. In a medium bowl, combine all sauce ingredients, mix well, and set aside.
  3. Using the same skillet that you cooked the onions in, over high heat add a little oil and place flattened meat patties in skillet. Season with salt and pepper while in the pan.
  4. Cook on each side for 1 minute, flipping twice. While finishing the cook time on the second flip, add 1 slice of American cheese on each patty. Cut heat on skillet and let meat rest in pan until cheese is melted.
  5. Assemble burger in this order: bottom bun, burger sauce, lettuce, caramelized onions, tomato, stacked cheesy patties, top bun.
