Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries! They’re iconic and loaded with flavour! Layered on a bed of spiced curly fries sits a pile of perfectly caramelized onions, gooey melted American-style Cheddar slices, and a mountain of the world-famous In N’ Out Special Animal-Style sauce! There’s a reason certain take-out dishes go down in the hall of fame, and Animal-Style Fries are no exception!
You know I had to take it one step further though with these Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries! I mean, anything called animal fries is just calling my name to be made. But I’ve never been one to just stop at the basics. For this dish, I had to level up the always popular Animal-Style Fries by putting them on one of the great style of fried potatoes we all know and love – curly fries!
What’s so special about these fries!?
First of all, if you haven’t been living under metaphorical internet rock lately, In N’ Out has pretty much unanimously taken the popularity vote in the competition amongst the burger scene! Sadly, they can mainly only be found along the western side of the USA… BUT – I have a fix for that! Introducing an even BETTER version of the iconic Animal-Style Fries: Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries! These animal-style curly fries are actually a special feature of what was once their “secret menu”. Of course, nothing is secret these days and it has quickly become a very frequently requested item. But the delicious Animal-Style fries remain as one of the more delicious take-out items in the country!
Let’s get in to what sets these apart shall we?
How they’re made:
The best part about these Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries, is that they are one of the simplest things I’ve had the pleasure of making! Not only are curly fries easily store-bought, but the sauce has minimal ingredients, and the entire dish takes no more than a few minutes to make with a good air fryer!
It’s really all about the sauce though, if we want to get down to why these fries are superior to any others. Very much like the Big Mac Sauce of McDonald’s, or Thousand Island Dressing, the In N’ Out Animal-style fries are a variation of those iconic creamy sauces. With a a slightly sweeter taste, due to the addition of granulated sugar, these Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries have you wanting to put the sauce on your next five meals too!
But, in order to give these Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries their depth of flavour, the caramelized onions come in to save the day! Add those, and the 4 slices of American Cheddar to top it off and you have a fry dish that will change the way you do Fry-Day from now on!
