In-N-Out Style Burgers at Home

In-N-Out Style Burgers at Home

I’ve lived in Tennessee for most of my life, but I was born in California and lived there for a short time in 2014 before getting married. When we go home to visit, I have a list of places that I just have to stop and eat at. One of those places is In-N-Out, and while my husband isn’t a huge fan of their fries (he says their burgers are okay), I can always always go for a Double Double Animal Style with Animal Style Fries. I decided to recreate them at home, so that I could have some In-N-Out Style Burgers whenever I wanted.

We don’t make burgers at home very often, but when we do this is the way that we prepare them, and it’s a hit every time. Honestly, when you don’t eat them Animal Style like I do, they’re not so much In-N-Out as they are a delicious burger from your favorite Diner, but either way, these will totally hit the spot.

To make the patties, I use 1 1/2 lbs of Lean Ground Beef. These patties will shrink up a bit, so don’t get lean if that’s not your thing. I typically smash them down quite thin and make them a bit larger than the buns. As far as seasoning, all I use is salt and pepper. _MG_4873

TO MAKE “ANIMAL STYLE” PATTIES, coat each side of the patty in mustard before you begin cooking them. It sounds weird, but just go with me here.
_MG_4875(My husband hates mustard, so I skipped this step for 4 of the patties, so that he could have 2 Mustard-Free Doubles.)

After heating up my griddle, I coat it with a bit of olive oil and throw the patties down. Cooking them for a few minutes on each side, continue flipping until they’re cooked through._MG_4877

_MG_4894While the patties are cooking, I take that time to prepare all of my toppings and butter the buns to get them ready for toasting. You can toast them before making the patties, but I wait until they’re done so that they don’t get cold.

You can use whatever toppings you want here. We like to use lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup, and grilled onions. You can do raw onions for that classic In-N-Out Burger taste.

Speaking of toppings, this is how I make the signature In-N-Out Spread:

1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons sweet relish
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon white vinegar
dash Worcestershire sauce
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Once the patties are cooked through, I add a slice of cheese to each patty. Good ole processed yellow sliced cheese works best here.

After removing them from the heat, I scrape off all of the dirty burger leftover bits and toss the buttered buns onto the griddle. Once they’re ready, start assembling your burgers because you’re all done!

I love cooking all of this on the griddle because it’s such an easy clean up, I have ONE dish (plus the spatula) to wash when I’m done. It also leaves my oven free to cook up some frozen fries, onion rings, whatever. If you’re wanting to make some Animal Style Fries, just top your fries with grilled onions and some spread!

And it’s time to chow down!

  • AD When Grayson was diagnosed with #hearingloss, one of my main concerns was being able to afford everything that he needed to maximize his quality of life. Hearing Evaluations, Speech Therapies, and any Devices that he needs aren't covered by insurance. If you know someone with a disability, have one yourself, or have a child with one, you know that it can become expensive FAST, and extremely overwhelming. When I heard about ABLEnow®, I was really 
excited to partner with them. ABLEnow accounts help eligible individuals (even children!) pay for expenses related to their disabilities. This includes everything from health and wellness, to housing, to education and so much more! Being able to help save for my son's financial future gives me such peace of mind. You can click the link in my bio to find out if you or someone you know is eligible to sign up for an ABLEnow account, and head to http://bit.ly/2ZrAozy for a chance to win a $500 contribution to an ABLEnow account! @ABLEnowVA #ABLEnow •

  • OH HEY. Remember me? 😂
I can’t even begin to describe the last two ish weeks that we’ve had over here. 
First of all, remember when I thought Grayson had pink eye? It turned out to just be a virus, that he also passed along to Sawyer, and they’re both still not over it. It’s gross, but I think we’re at the tail end of it. *Hopefully* 
Also, I got a new job. It’s part time and from home and I think it is going to be great for us. Does that mean you’ll see less of me? Nah. Probably the same or more since it’s I’ll be sitting at my desk way more often day to day. 
I also got hit with some severe dental pain on Friday, which was FUN to have to deal with over a holiday weekend, let me tell you. Thankfully, I’m finally on the mend and pain free 🙌🏻
I can’t wait to settle back into this space. 
Tell me something good that’s happened to you this week! I want to hear all of the things. •

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Say that three times fast. I will be throwing this really quick recipe up on the blog later tonight. I made it last week and y’all were really excited to try it. Having two small children, I always try to make meals fun, versatile, and full of flavor so that they will enjoy it. I also love making recipes that are able to be tweaked to make it comfortable for your family. You CAN make your family healthy and delicious meals at home and it doesn’t have to take hours or require a ton of effort! 
SWIPE—>> to see an example of how I serve this meal to each of my kids. And keep your eyes peeled for this to hit the blog. •

  • I’m so excited to share this Better Than Takeout Beef Fried Rice with you guys. (You can totally sub the beef for chicken, pork, or shrimp!) We add a little extra veggies and an extra egg because Grayson like a lot of egg in his “egg rice” 😂 I also included a Homemade Yum Yum Sauce recipe because...do I even need a reason? You can find this recipe by clicking the link in my bio! •
