In-N-Out Hamburger Recipe

Driving along a busy street in California you might spot In-N-Out Burger. The drive through lines are often backed up with 20 cars waiting. In-N-Out Burger is amazingly good because everything is fresh. The secret to making this is to get the patty real thin, 1/4 inch or less. At the drive through, you can order onions grilled for your burger.

This is an unofficial recipe:
1/4 pound ground beef 
1 fresh hamburger bun 
Dash of salt 
1 tablespoon Kraft Thousand Island dressing 
Large tomato slice (or 2 small slices) 
Large lettuce leaf 
2 slices American cheese (Singles) 
-or- 1 slice real American cheese 
1 whole onion slice (sliced thin) 

Preheat a frying pan over medium heat. 
Lightly toast the hamburger bun, face down in the pan. 
Set aside. 
Form each half into a thin patty slightly larger than the bun. 
Lightly salt patty and cook for 2-3 minutes on the first side. 
Flip it over and immediately place slice of cheese on.
Cook for 2-3 minutes. 
Assemble the burger in the following stacking order from the bottom up: 
bottom bun
beef patty with cheese
onion slice or grilled onions
top bun

       Planet Hollywood Pot Stickers: Six pot stickers filled with fresh ground
       turkey meat seasoned with ginger, water chestnuts, red pepper and green
       onions. They are fried and served in a basket with spicy hoisin. Unofficial recipe:

             1/4 pound ground turkey
             1 teaspoon minced green onion
             1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
             1 teaspoon minced water chestnuts
             1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
             1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
             1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
             1/4 teaspoon salt
             1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
             1 egg, beaten
             Vegetable oil for frying
             12 wonton wrappers (3 x 3-inch size)
             Hoison sauce on the side
             Combine all the ingredients except the egg,
             wrappers and oil. Add 1 tablespoon of the beaten
             egg. Save the rest of the egg for later.
             Preheat oil in a deep fryer or a deep saucepan
             to 375 degrees. Use enough
             oil to cover the pot stickers -- 1 to 2 inches approx.
             Invert a small bowl or glass with a 3-inch diameter on the center of a
             wonton wrapper and cut around it to make a circle. Repeat for the remaining
             Spoon 1/2 tablespoon of the turkey filling into the center of one wrapper.
             Brush some beaten egg around half of the edge of the wrapper and fold the
             wrapper over the filling. Gather the wrapper as you seal it so that it is
             crinkled around the edge. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
              Deep-fry the pot stickers, six at a time in the hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes or
             until they are brown. Drain on a rack or paper towels. Serve with hoisin
             sauce for dipping.
             Serves 3 to 4 as an appetizer.


             Starbucks Frappuccino   unofficial

             1/2 cup fresh espresso
             2 1/2 cups lowfat milk
             1/4 cup granulated sugar
            Combine  ingredients. Stir  until
            sugar is dissolved. Serve cold.
            I recommend putting the drink in the freezer for
            an hour or until tiny crystals of ice begin to form.
            The added texture makes this a real treat.
            Makes 3 glasses.
