In-N-Out Cheeseburger Copycat

Continuing on with the recipes from the Rainbows and Ponies birthday party, today I have a tasty recipe from Life as a Lofthouse for In-N-Out Cheeseburgers. I wanted to keep the party simple so we grilled burgers and hot dogs. The burgers turned out juicy and delicious. Don't skip the secret sauce, it is what makes this burger so great!

In-N-Out Cheeseburger Copycat
Makes 6 servings

  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 small Yellow Onion grated. (1/2 a cup)
  • 1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 slices American Cheese
  • 6 Hamburger Buns  (seedless)
Secret Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup Light Mayo
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Dill Pickle Relish
  • 1 tsp Mustard
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika

1. For secret sauce:  Mix all of the 'secret sauce' ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2. For burgers:  In a large bowl, add ground beef, egg white, grated onion, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt and pepper. Using your hands or a fork, gently mix together. Shape mixture into 6 patties. Place patties on grill and cook until no longer pink on the inside. About 3-5 minutes per side. Place one piece of american cheese over the burgers during the last minute of grilling.

3. Spread the secret sauce on each inner bun. Place grilled patties on bottom bun and top with lettuce, tomato and onion.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Mexican Dorito Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Mexican Dorito Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
