Homemade Burger Sauce (In-N-Out Special Sauce - Copycat)

You are going to love this tangy hamburger sauce because it adds that special something-something and makes your burgers epic. It tastes exactly like In-N-Out's special sauce and goes so well with all your favorite burger toppings. It’s so much better than anything you could possibly buy in the store. It's perfect for burgers, french fries, onion rings, or anything else you might want some delicious sauce on! And, you need only 6 simple ingredients. It couldn’t be easier. It's my favorite sauce.
