In n Out Burger Secret Menu
Did you know that In-N-Out Burger has a secret menu? In all honesty, the secret menu isn’t so secret any more. They offer other special styles like the Flying Dutchman, Protein style, their acclaimed grilled cheese and specialty milkshakes like root beer or neopolitan.
One of the highlights are the Animal Style Fries.
Nearly all of the cheeseburgers come animal style already, adding gooey American cheese, fried onions and Fry Sauce, but you can also get your fries smothered with the addictive combination.
A cult following of In-N-Out Burger will tell you the animal fries might actually be better than the award winning fast food burgers.
It starts with super crispy French Fries piled high with deliciousness. My suggestion, mix them up good and eat them with a fork.
Then you can really mop up the awesome sauce. These aren’t the best finger food.
The key is really in the sauce. A fry sauce that combines ketchup, mustard, dill pickles and mayonnaise with one special ingredient that really gives it a tang.
While Fry Sauce tastes great as a dipping sauce for nearly, well, everything, it can also top a burger, hot dog or deli sandwich. Yes, it is similar to thousand island dressing, but a little different.
Animal Fry Toppings
The animal fries really come into play with the addition of deeply fried onions and American cheese.
The onions must be deeply caramelized so they achieve a sweet heat to complement the savory sauce and cheese. Make sure you check out the science behind caramelized onions before you get started.
What Should I Serve Them With?
Well, the obvious choice is a burger. But if that doesn’t float your boat, here are a few more options:
What You’ll Need
Rimmed Baking Sheet– Rimmed is best to not lose your precious fries and toppings right off the side. Cover with aluminum foil for easy clean up. I like these 18 gauge aluminum pans best.
A hungry appetite.
