Fry Sauce, Secret Sauce, Special Sauce House Sauce – what ever you may call it, you know you gotta have it for the ultimate burger and fry meal. This recipe for Homemade Fry Sauce is pretty simple, but oh so good. My kids ask for it every time we have burger night. Sometimes I put it on the burger and sometimes we have it for dipping our fries in. When there is some leftover, it gets used with chicken strips for lunch the next day.
There are lots of variations of fry sauce all over the place. Most burger joints have their own version with that one “different ingredient”. Some add in mustard – yellow, brown, dijon, grainy – some add honey or other sweetener. Some use dill pickles others add sweet pickles. The recipe that I have put together is my own version of all the different types of sauces I have tried over the years.
I like to use dill relish for a few reasons. It’s a time saver, you don’t have to chop up the pickles ahead of time and they are chopped finer than is easy to get by hand without mushing them up to much. I pick the dill over sweet relish because I like the zing of the dill. And also because the ketchup usually brings enough sweetness to the party.
The last time I made this, I was serving up another of my fusion creations – Cheeseburger Flauntas. All the yummy flavors of a cheeseburger rolls up into a flour tortilla and air fried. Keep an eye out – I will be sharing that recipe soon.
