If you live in southern California you know about In-N-Out Burger. They are a chain of burger restaurants that have quite a cult following, as well as a secret menu. But growing up in the suburbs of Chicago I fell in love with the hot dog. Although In-N-Out doesn't serve hot dogs, I thought I would try to make one similar to the classic double-double burger that they are famous for.
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup relish
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp sugar
Hot Dog buns
2 cup finely chopped Onions
Slices of American Cheese
Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
Add some butter to your griddle. When the butter is foaming, add the onions. Cook the onions on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onions become golden brown and a caramel color. They should also be translucent. When close to done move to the side where a burner is turned off.
For the sauce Combine all the ketchup, mayo, relish, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Place the bowl in the fridge to let the flavors come together.
Place your hot dogs on the griddle and cook, turning occasional until browned.
Add slices of American cheese on top of the onions. Add a bit of water to the pan and cover letting the steam melt the cheese. Take the onions and cheese off the heat and place on top of the hot dogs.
Serve and Enjoy!
