Immediately when I saw the title of this YouTube my mouth started to salivate, no lie. I love In-N-Out, especially the animal style fries. I couldn’t even envision what In-N-Out Animal style mac n’ cheese would look like when I came across this video by Mythical Kitchen. I think this would be a great hit of a recipe because everyone knows In-N-Out and it’s animal style fries are so popular. I wish they had one here in the south, but that means I need to move to the west. It’s kind of a recipe of the south meets west coast. Mac n’ cheese is one of the best southern side dishes, so having this combination is mindblowing to me. There’s no way after watching this video that I would not try making this. This recipe seems complex to prepare each layer, but it’ll be worth it all in the end.
