I have never been lucky enough to visit an In-N-Out. The closest one is in Texas...probably a good 15 hours away. It pains me to see all the burgers from people on the West Coast eating all those delicious In-N-Out burgers. The best I can get is a copycat recipe and I will gladly take that. I am a huge fan of copycat recipes :)

This is the In-N-Out Double Double. It is a double cheeseburger with two patties, two slices of American cheese, onion, lettuce, tomato, and animal sauce (similar to fry sauce, if you're familiar with that). The onion can be sliced or grilled. This recipe called for caramelizing - my favorite! I personally love a simple burger seasoned with salt and pepper and cooked in a cast iron skillet. Then the combination of the rest of the ingredients with the burger make for such a flavorful, juicy meal!

(Print)
What you need:
  • 1 to 2 lb. ground beef (I used 80/20) - 1 lb. makes 8 patties (4 burgers total)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 tsp. dill pickles, finely diced (or relish)
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. distilled white vinegar 
  • Soft hamburger buns
  • Dill pickles (for serving)
  • Tomato, sliced (for serving)
  • Lettuce, in pieces sized for burgers
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • American cheese
Directions:
  1. In a preheated 400 degree oven, let closed buns bake for 2 minutes and get a little crispy. Set aside.
  2. Form meat into 2-oz balls and then flatten down to 1/4-inch thickness. They should be slightly larger than the hamburger bun.
  3. In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. butter over medium-high until it shimmers.
  4. Add onions to skillet and season with salt. Turn heat to medium low and cook until onions are golden brown, around 15 minutes. Stir and toss occasionally.
  5. While onions cook, mix together mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, sugar, and vinegar to make your animal sauce. Refrigerate until ready to serve burgers.
  6. When onions look dry and are sizzling a lot, add 1 Tbsp. water to the skillet and stir. Cook until water evaporates and onions are sizzling again. Repeat until they are browned and really soft (about 3 times).
  7. Remove onions to a bowl and set aside. Don't clean the pan that the onions were in.
  8. After onions are done, toast inside of burger buns in the same skillet until golden brown. Add butter to pan if needed, 1/2 Tbsp. at a time.
  9. Season patties with salt and pepper. Cook in a skillet over high to medium-high heat until browned on one side, about 2 1/2 minutes.
  10. While they cook, spread 1 Tbsp. mustard on the raw side on top.
  11. Flip and cook for another minute or so.
  12. To serve: Slather animal sauce on top and bottom bun. Then starting from the bottom: 4 pickles, a slice of tomato, a piece of lettuce, a patty, a piece of cheese, caramelized onions, a patty, a piece of cheese, caramelized onion, and finish with the top bun. Serve with fries and a little animal sauce on the side.

Another burger that is simple with great toppings is this recipe for Burgers with Thyme Caramelized Onions and Garlic Mayo. I've been in love with the idea of burgers as an appetizer not in slider form ever since I saw the picture of these Burger-Potato Bites from Better Home & Gardens.
