Vegan Animal-Style Curly Fries: 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!



  • 4 cups store-bought curly fries
  • 4 slices American cheddar style vegan cheese slices
  • 1/2 white onion, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter

For the Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 1/3 cup diced sweet dill pickle
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp granulated white sugar


  1. Set the air fryer or pre-heat the oven to 400 fegrees F. Cook for 15 minutes or until crispy on the outside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan over medium heat, add your vegan butter and onion. Cook until onions are translucent and remove from heat. Set aside.
  3. In a medium size bowl, add all sauce ingredients. Whisk until fully combined.
  4. Assemble by adding curly fries to a basket or serving plate. Layer on the fried onions, cheddar slices(I pre-melted mine for an authentic look by cooking them on a piece of parchment paper for 30 seconds on high in a microwave). Then add as much Animal-Style sauce as you like!
  5. Serve and enjoy!
