C – Make your own In-n-Out sauce and you will get your In-n-Out fix … sort of.
Honestly, I haven’t perfected this recipe. It still needs tinkering. I looked on their site for an ingredients list for their sauce and they didn’t have one. I know they put in something special to make it creamier than what I have.
Maybe it’s a lot of oil or an emulsifier of some sort. I guess the next time I go to In-n-Out I’ll have to get a secret sauce packet and hope there’s an ingredients list on the packet.
Even though I haven’t perfected the consistency of the sauce, I did get the taste down. This recipe makes your burgers taste like an In-n-Out burger. A lot of people are surprised to find out it isn’t just ketchup and mayonnaise mixed together. There’s a lot more to it. Relish, vinegar, garlic powder, sugar, salt and pepper.
I was amazed when I found a condiment company making a special sauce similar to this and selling for $7 for a small bottle. That bottle only makes about 6 burgers. Making it yourself will get you a lot more for a much lower price.
And no, I will NOT buy the Big Mac Sauce that McDonald’s is producing. Sadly, that sauce is being sold for $100+ on Ebay. There’s high fructose corn syrup and other preservatives in that sauce. No thanks.

- Salt and pepper taste
- Combine all the ingredients.
- Place into the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before using to allow the flavors to combine well.

What would I change next time? Make my own mayonnaise. Yup, I think making my own mayonnaise will allow me have control of the consistency. I don’t think I want to add any emulsifiers. The sauce is good. It tastes just like the original.
If you want to make burgers that taste like In-n-Out ,,, or just can’t get to an In-n-Out … make this sauce and put it on your burgers. It’s close enough.
