Alice Currah's classic drive-in burger and the L.A. Times' homemade In-N-Out Double Double burger are two tasty burger recipes. Currah's simple burger is made from pre-made frozen patties and topped with thousand island dressing, ketchup and mustard. The homemade Double Double burger is made from 80/20 ground chuck and finished with a special sauce made with mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish, Worcestershire sauce and white wine vinegar.
To make a classic drive-in burger, spread mayonnaise on each cut side of a hamburger bun before toasting until lightly charred. Meanwhile, season a burger patty with salt, pepper and Lawry's seasoning salt, and then cook both sides for three to four minutes on a medium-high grill. Top with a slice of medium cheddar cheese, thousand island dressing, ketchup, mustard, lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
The homemade In-N-Out Double Double burger recipe is similar, but calls for American cheese, yellow onion and a special sauce. Cook 1/4 inch 80/20 ground chuck patties for about a minute on each side, and then assemble the burger with the cheese, lettuce, tomato and chopped onions. Make the special sauce by whisking together 1/2 cup of mayo, 3 tablespoons and 2/12 teaspoons of ketchup, 1 teaspoon of yellow mustard, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce and 1 teaspoon of white wine vinegar. Add 2 1/2 teaspoons each of sweet pickle relish and dill pickle relish and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and sugar. Spread the sauce on the buns before serving.
