    In n Out Double-Double Clone - Part Deux

    First attempt today @ Lunch: https://tvwbb.com/showthread.php?748...double-double)

    (short version: chopped a couple ribeyes into hamburger in the food processor for the first time)




    this time I put the cheese on right at the end (also grilled them). I put the lid down with the cheese on for maybe 20-30 seconds, but not very long


    I also used a third slice of cheese, sauced the top, and cooked the onion.....so this time from the bottom up it was bun, sauce, tomato, lettuce, patty, cheese, onion, cheese, patty, cheese, sauce, top bun.






    I got some smoked paprika from the store today, it's been on my list for a couple of months. IMO, chipotle powder is just about the same as smoked paprika, so no need to keep both in the spice rack. But anyway, I used smoked paprika in the sauce when it called for paprika....and the "chipotle" flavor really comes through.




    Probably way too may pics, and this is where it gets weird. Who wants to see my half-destroyed burger? I used foil to make a wrapper in attempt to keep the burger together in attempt to make it more portable. It worked. I obviously won't be doing this with a normal burger I make that's on like a cibiatta (or baci) roll or a bagel or ?????, but in my attempt to clone a FF burger, why not.

    You want cheese? Then use cheese. Not that processed #^#%@^ .
    Oh no! There's a time and a place for good old American cheese that's gooey and melty, and a Double Double is the perfect place for American cheese.

    According to Cook's Illustrated, the top-rated American cheese slice is Kraft Deli Deluxe American Cheese slices.

    And did you know you can make your own American cheese? It consists of cheddar, nonfat milk powder, tapioca starch, salt, butter, white wine, and water.

    There are many other recipes out there using gelatin instead of tapioca, like this one from Epicurious.

    I was looking for the Kraft Deluxe, but I got the Kroger Deluxe and it was much more substantial than the regular kraft singles (why did I buy them last time????), Sounds funny but these have some tug or some pull, closer to a real cheese slice, with a decent flavor. I'll do some of these with medium or sharp cheddar before long I'm sure.



    And people - if you like fries or tots - make this burger sauce, it's GOOD. It's not that far from a Russian dressing (russian adds some horseradish and I add garlic but don't do that here the first time). I consider myself a bit of a fry sauce expert and this is good.


    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    3 tablespoons ketchup
    2 tablespoons finely minced white onion
    1 1/2 tablespoons finely minced dill pickle relish
    3/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
    1/4 teaspoon yellow mustard
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    (I used smoked paprika & it tasted just like chipotle to me....I like chipotle so I'm not disappointed)
    1/8 teaspoon salt



    Edit: Now I'm going to do a grilled cheese like in that video Chris! Lets see, tomato soup...... ATK had a cream-free tomato soup that I've really enjoyed - it's quick & easy.

    I might've had in n out as a kid but the only time I remember it we pulled out because the line was too long (I was working for a friend of the family). Tommy Burger OTOH - I remember eating there, way back when.

    Next time, Me and a friend (RIP) drove to Yuma AZ and grabbed something as we pulled into town - it left a bad taste in my mouth & when they finally made it to UT I just wasn't interested.

    Monday as I was going through the drive thru I was watching their griddle trying to catch any pointers. I noticed off the the far right there was a stainless partition (maybe 6" wide) that I assumed was farther from the heat source - I saw fried (griddled) onions kept in there - not a huge amount.

    Over the last several years I've always ordered mine "animal style", and then I found out you can order your fries Animal Style as well. Talking to a friend who doesn't eat beef/pork/chicken (fowl is foul to him), he said that you could order a grilled cheese there........ I forget what else he had to say about in n out but to a somewhat-vegetarian, he spoke very highly of them.

    Yea, the long lines - I always called it "in-n-wait". But so worth it. I remember when the 94 earthquake hit, everything was closed and/or nobody had power for days - except in-n-out. The line was probably 1/4 mile long. Yea, we sat in it - had nothing better to do... Damn it was good! Still love in-n-out & Tommy's.
    You need to get you some plain buns if you're cloning a double double - no sesame seeds.

    In and Out burgers are the best. Never had Tommy's Burger but Rich has and he likes them also. Talking about burgers its about time to make a run to In and Out real soon.
