Animal Style… you’ve heard of it. It’s the off menu sauce that can take your plain old burger and fries from In-N-Out Burger and turn them into something out of this world!
I know you’re thinking, “Hey Dr. Carrie, how can you promote healthy living and eating and talk about a burger and fry joint in the same breath?”
I am a big fan of In-N-Out Burger. They are located primarily on the west side of the US but on a family road trip to Texas is where I tried it out for the first time.
Yes, I ordered my single burger bunless in a lettuce wrap. In-N-Out calls it, “Protein Style” and it’s about 150 calories less than the original burger. It’s a good burger. My husband went for the secret menu ‘Animal Style Burger & Fries’. Animal Style is a sauce and caramelized onions with cheese.
Animal Style is a whole different level of good (I chalk it up to the onions).
Last week one of my kids brought up our road trip and he said that he would love to go to In-N-Out again. Since a road trip back to Texas (the closest location to us from Florida) isn’t on the books right now, I went to work to bring In-N-Out to us.
