Think In-n-Out Burgers gone high-end and you have my Not-so-White Trash Burgers. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t pine over In-n-Out Burger and this recipe is pretty terrific. What makes it "white trash"? Well, that’s the iceberg lettuce and special sauce. I add heirloom tomatoes just to take it up a notch.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
- 3 lbs ground chuck
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
- 1/2 tsp seasoned pepper
- Hamburger buns
- 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
- 1 large heirloom tomatoes, sliced
- 1 small red onion, sliced
- 6 slices of cooked bacon, cut in half
- Cheddar cheese, sliced (optional)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp dill pickle relish
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- In a bowl mix the: mayonnaise, ketchup, vinegar, sugar, relish and onion. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
- Heat grill to medium-high. Mix the chuck with the garlic powder, seasoned salt and seasoned pepper. Form patties. Add to grill and cook for about 7 minutes total for medium rare, turning over half way through adding cheese if you like. Finish the burgers on the grill to melt the cheese over top.
- Plate the burgers as follows: Spoon Special Sauce over the buns. Stack burger, lettuce, tomato, bacon and onion.
Eat and Enjoy!
