  • 1 lb ground beef, split into 4-oz. patties
  • Burger buns
  • Fresh tomato
  • Fresh lettuce
  • White onion, sliced thin
  • American cheese
  • Neutral oil, for cooking
  • Salt and pepper

Burger Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce


  • 1
    For the burger sauce, whisk the sauce ingredients together and store in the fridge until needed.
  • 2
    Divide ground beef into 4 thin patties (4 oz. each). They should be thin, so they cook quickly.
  • 3
    In a large skillet or on a griddle over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of neutral oil and add the beef patties. Press down on patties gently, so they form a crust on the bottom. Cook for about 3 minutes. Season patties with salt and pepper.
  • 4
    Flip patties and cook for another 2-3 minutes to finish cooking patties. Top each patty with American cheese.
  • 5
    To assemble burgers, toast the buns and smear a big spoonful of burger sauce on the bottom bun. Top with tomato, lettuce, one cheese slice, a slice of onion, a second patty, and the bun topper.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    For an authentic In-N-Out Burger™ experience, wrap your sandwich in parchment paper to prevent any of that secret sauce from dripping out the sides of the bun!
  • tip 2
    This burger cooks best on a very hot skillet or griddle, which is what creates that delicious crust on the outside of the patty. If you would like to grill your burgers instead, do so over high heat.
  • tip 3
    We used American cheese in this recipe because it melts so well, but you could easily swap it out with your favorite sliced cheese.
