Fry Sauce is the perfect accompaniment to freshly fried spuds, a charbroiled burger, roasted hot dogs or even a French dip sandwich!
Head down to Puerto Rico and you’ll have “mayo ketchup” with garlic powder. In Mississippi, they call it “come back sauce” and in other areas “special sauce” or “secret sauce”. It is what sets the California fast food chain In-N-Out Burger aside from competitors and keeps people coming back. Other variations include pickle juice, onion powder, relish, mustard and even vinegar. I’ve taken all of the tasty add-ins and mixed them into one well-balanced recipe and it’s totally THE best Fry Sauce!
