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


  • 4 hamburger burgers, butter for buns, if desired
  • 1 lb ground beef chuck, preferably not lean
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • oil for the pan
  • 4 thick slices beefsteak tomatoes
  • 4 leaves iceberg lettuce, torn into bun size pieces
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 4 thin slices large onion, kept intact


  1. Make the spread: Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Lightly toast the buns, buttered if desired, in a dry pan over medium heat. If you have someone helping you in the kitchen, have them make the spread and toast the buns while you form the patties and cook them off.
  3. Divide the meat into 8 equal portions and gently form into patties slightly larger than your buns. They will be quite thin. Season both sides with salt and pepper. If you like, you can do this ahead of time and keep them separated with parchment paper and wrapped up in the fridge.
  4. Heat up a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat and add a small amount of oil to the pan. When it’s hot and shimmery, add 2 patties to the pan and cook, without moving for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, or until deeply caramelized. Flip and cook for another minute or so. Remove from the pan onto a plate or cutting board and top both patties with a slice of American cheese. Repeat with the remaining patties
  5. Assemble the burgers: the bottom buns get sauce, to taste, then a slice of tomato, lettuce, a cheese-topped patty, onion slice, another cheese-topped patty, then the top bun. Enjoy immediately!
