Mustard Grilled Onion Burgers - an homage to In N Out

When we used to live in California, Nate would eat at In N Out burger about once every two weeks - more if he could get away with it. Once, he told me that he thought they put crack in the burgers, cause its not like they are out of this world, but he CRAVED them!

Needless to say, when we went to Anaheim in February for vacation - we had to eat at In N Out 2 times in 7 days!!

If you know anything about In N Out, you know there is their basic menu and their secret menu. I guess its not really that secret - it's on their website - just not on the menu at the restaurant. You can get grilled onions, animal style, mustard grilled, grilled buns.... and a few others - you just have to ask!!

Nate likes a double double mustard grilled with grilled onions and all the toppings - that means 2 quarter lb patties grilled in mustard, cheese on each patty, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, pickle and raw onions, mayo mustard and ketchup.

Tonight I made my own version - Mustard grilled Onion Burgers - and I made Nate's about a 1/3 of a lb, a little bigger than a single patty, but big enough that he didn't need to make it a double.

(forgive the blurry picture - I was in a hurry!)
