Copycat In-N-Out Spread Sauce

Copycat In-N-Out Spread Sauce

California here we come, right back where we started from!  In-N-Out Burgers originated in my neck of the woods in 1948, and we did our part to make it famous.  We still order up animal style double-double cheeseburgers, fries, and the best shakes around.  When we can’t hit the road, we grill our own burgers, make our own buns, and a batch of Copycat In-N-Out Spread Sauce.

We really adore how In-N-Out serves it your way.  We have indulged by eating plenty of their signature veggie-heavy, never-frozen, well-balanced, tangy-sauced creations through the years.  There are a myriad of ways to order their burgers, fries and shakes.

Here’s where Alison comes in.  She fancies In-N-Out Spread Sauce like no other on her double-fried fries! So our Copycat In-N-Out Spread Sauce is just for her.  Seriously, the rest of you will love it too!

 

 

 

“I really can’t live without my In-N-Out burgers.  Honestly, I can’t.  Even when I’m doing the whole no carb thing occasionally, I make an exception for these.  They’re too delicious to count.”

Nate Berkus

Make your fries and burgers amazing with our Copycat In-N-Out Spread Sauce. Serve it all double-double and animal style!

Alison pours this amazing sauce on her burgers and fries!  I’m just sayin’ there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to In-N-Out’s Spread Sauce!

It’s quite like a thousand island dressing, mayo based and creamy.  I have seen recipes with both sweet pickle relish and dill pickle relish.  We are a dill family, so I always use this variety, but you have our permission to use which ever you’d like.

In a small mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together with a rubber spatula.  Snap on the lid and refrigerate overnight so that the flavors can meld.

Keep any leftovers refrigerated and use within a 2 week period.

    Something new to try again. I guess it’s good for burgers and anything grilled, too.

    This looks and sounds amazing, and perfect timing with bbq season coming up. I love a burger and chips now and again, will definitely be writing this recipe down for when I next have people over.

    I have never eaten at an In & Out Burger before. Apparently, they do have some locations in Texas, just not near me.

    I will always treasure those memories of my mother preparing those biscuits, so lovingly.Your posts bring me those memories.I am sure all your delicacies get consumed by the youngsters in your household.When my wife prepares delicacies, I make it a point that they must not leave the house for the neighbours;)))all of it will be just for my kids..am I feeling stupid?

    This looks delicious! I had an In N Out Burger when I was in San Francisco for the first time. I was tired of hearing my West Coast friends rave about it. It was delicious and so cheap! I also like a creamy sauce on fries every once in a while, just like the Belgians do.

    O-M-G. There are a few foods I could eat every day: plantain, pizza, and BURGERS! These look amazing. I don’t cook, but I’ll get someone to make these for me haha.

      Even if you don’t cook you could whip this together and add it to your burger. It will be worth it – I promise!

    Wow, i bet this sauce would taste good on any sandwich!! Does In and Out have a veggie burger on their menu? I really need to visit that restaurant one day because I hear SOOOO much about it. Thanks for sharing this special sauce recipe. 🙂 🙂

    This makes me so sad. Mostly because I have to eat at In-N-Out. It’s cruel to hear so much about it and never experience it lol I will have to save this recipe and create my own.

    Now I gotta hope that Whole Foods has mayonnaise on sale – this sounds like it would be a really yummy recipe! and easy to make, too!

    Once again something that I cannot resist 🙂 And those double freid fries sounded exactly what I need right now! Without ideas and recipes it’s so hard to figure out what to cook and make for lunch/dinner etc. New tips are always needed – thanks again Alison!

      It’s better if the flavors blend, however you can mix it up, enjoy and then refrigerator any leftover sauce.
