These days we’re spending more time in the kitchen cooking up new recipes and eating more, I have one more recipe to make-at-home you must know about – copycat In N Out Animal Fries! shared the recipe and it sounds kinda easy to make, you may have all the ingredients in your cupboard already.

It’s actually quite easy to whip up your own version of In ‘N’ Out’s special sauce at home. All you need is ketchup, mustard, relish, vinegar, and sugar. And once you’ve got the sauce, all you have to do is fry up some onions and melt some cheese to turn frozen French fries straight out of the bag into Animal Fries, right in your own kitchen. Recreate In N Out’s animal fries at home with this copycat recipe below!
