Every once in awhile, I cannot get the craving of a juicy burger out of my mind. And until the craving is satisfied, I am obsessed with debating if I should go out to eat a burger or should I make it myself. Our family favorite burger is from In-n-Out, however, we are in Chicago – not California, Arizona, or Texas. When I ran across this recipe, I thought, “Why not?” While it’s not going to replace that authentic In-n-Out burger, it’s super easy and a keeper in our rotation of meals. Serves 4.
- 1 pound 80/20 ground beef
- 1 small onion grated (about 1/3 cup)
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 4 slices American cheese
- 4 brioche buns
- Garnishes: Ketchup, mustard, lettuce, carmelized onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise
In a large bowl mix ground beef, grated onion, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt and pepper. Shape into 4-6 patties based on your preference of thickness.
Place patties on grill or skillet and cook until no longer pink on the inside about 3-5 minutes per side. Place American cheese over the burgers during the last minute.
Spread butter on brioche buns and toast either in toaster oven or grill. Place patties on bottom bun and top with garnishes of your choice.
