Recipe: Paleo In & Out Burgers

March 20, 2018

If you grew up in Arizona or California you have an incredible love for In-N-Out Burgers. They're the best burgers in the entire world. Don't come at me with Shake Shack or Smashburger or McDonalds, you won't win this argument.

When I was a kid, In-N-Out was only in California. I have incredible memories of driving to visit my aunt and uncle and stopping at In-N-Out on the way. We always got the hats, burgers and so many shakes.

In high-school, we LIVED in In-N-Out. After any football game, basketball game we would gather at In-N-Out and hang out until they kicked us out. Then we'd hang out in the parking lot until our curfews were close. For our 10-year high-school reunion, my BFF's and I left the bar early to go to In-N-Out to hang out.

Now, whenever I go home, regardless of what diet I'm on, we always stop at In-N-Out. I'm not even semi-ashamed that it's a part of my life. I love it.

The problem of living in Colorado? No In-N-Out. Yes, it's coming this year, but it's not here yet. It's all I crave. I found this recipe online for their special sauce and after a few tricks, I've mastered it. And, I've managed to make it paleo. I'd call this a win in my house!

I formally apologize to my husband for the amount of homemade In-N-Outs he's going to be forced to eat.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (click here for paleo mayo!) 
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (click here for paleo ketchup!)
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar (use coconut sugar for paleo!)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
How to make: 
  1. Combine all ingredients. 
  2. Let chill for at least an hour before using!
