In-N-Out Burger only has locations in a few states. Tragically, mine is not one of them.

I decided to take matters into my own hands and make the chain’s incredible Double-Double Animal Style burger at home. This is quite possibly the tastiest fast-food burger in existence. It contains four beef patties, four slices of cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mustard, and In-N-Out’s “Animal Sauce.”

And so, as Tyson pleaded with me to not “mess this up,” I proceeded to make the most delicious creation to ever come out of the Elissa the Mom kitchen.

You will need:


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup mustard
  • Animal Sauce (recipe below)
  • 1½ cups onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces ground beef
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • Bakery bun
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Tomato slices
  • Pickles
  • Salt and pepper

Animal Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • ½ teaspoon vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sugar

Did you know: There’s a little trick to cooking a hamburger on the stove without the mess. Roll the ground beef into balls, put them in a Ziploc bag, and flatten them to make perfect patties.

By the way, this recipe only makes one burger. One. Is it a lot of work? Yes, it is. But trust me when I say, it’s well worth it. This thing is delicious.
