Well, this post was supposed to go up a few days before 4th of July. But, we all know how that goes!!! I though I would share it with y’all anyway, since summer weekend grilling parties are still happening!
My husband and I are thinking about moving out-of-state. The sunshine tax here in California is getting to be too much, especially when the sun can’t even get through this damn marine layer!!! However, moving out-of-state would mean no more In-N-Out or fresh Mexican food! So please excuse me while I test out recipes to guarantee I have mastered them while I am still local and can cross reference the flavors.
So, first up, Animal Style Spread. I thought it would be fun to put together a whole In-N-Out Style burger bar at a bbq, complete with vanilla, chocolate and strawberry milkshakes. Everyone loved it!
As you can see, I added a menu with different styles. I had a small condiment area with ketchup, mustard, mayo, “secret sauce” and grilled onions in which guests could make their burgers however they pleased.
Or, they could go a bit more crazy and do “Monkey Style” which is a traditional cheese burger with the standard ketchup, mayo and mustard, but topped with a spoonful of animal style fries. This one was of course my favorite!
If you’re looking to make your summer BBQ over the top and fun, try this burger bar out!!! Anyone who has ever been to In-N-Out will love it!!!
I have provided the recipes for Animal Style Sauce, Animal Style Fires, and Grilled Onions. I will be posting the milkshake recipes here over the next week or two. Thank you to the amazing Emily for helping me set this up and photograph it! I can’t wait to formally introduce her, as she is going to become a gluten-free contributor on the blog!!!!
