I've been sick. For weeks. Even the burger-saturated center of my brain -- the part full of neurons unceasingly firing information about meat, cheese, and bun -- even that part of my brain shut down for about 10 days. It was horrible.
As the antibiotics kicked in, my desires reawakened and I found myself back in my familiar state of mind: battling daily with an insatiable burger lust. So last night, my wife was out with friends and my kids were fast asleep, and I decided to indulge once again. I made In-n-Out Double Doubles.
I used a tried and true recipe which you can find here: RECIPE. I made a few small adjustments, since I don't normally order Animal Style when I visit In-n-Out. I nixed the pickles, I was out of tomato (usually do it though), and I don't cook the beef in mustard.
Keep in mind, if you try this, and you should: caramelizing onions is gonna take you a good 30-45 minutes to get them properly gooey.
Well, that's my night last night. I sat alone at my kitchen counter and gorged myself on Double Doubles. Two of them. Yes, two.
It's good to be back.
