Have you been craving the infamous American food chain known for its addictive secret menu items, namely the delicious "animal style" fries and burgers? Look no further! Now you can remake these burgers and fries at home with your own secret sauce and be the talk of the town. This spread is perfect for your next barbeque and so easy to scale up as needed! You can even make the mayonnaise and pickles from scratch for a (slightly) healthier version. Start dressing up your burgers or steaks with this dressing/spread similar to Thousand-Island. Make it in advance and save it for the next couple days!

  • EXPIRATION -- I made my mayonnaise and pickles from scratch, so I recommend using the spread within 3 days. If you make it from storebought, I expect it'll keep up to a week!

    Sorry is this a topping or do you mix it with the ground beef?

      It is a topping! You use it like you would ketchup or mayo. :)

    It will last way longer than a week with store bought ingredients, just press down a baggie over your storage container before sealing each use.
