Have you ever heard of Mayo Ketchup? I hadn’t either until a trip to Puerto Rico a few years back. They serve all of their fries with Fry Sauce or “Special Puerto Rican Sauce”.
Fry Sauce is the best dipping sauce for French Fries, hamburgers, deli sandwiches or onion rings. Easy to make and it stays fresh in the fridge for days!
Turns out all the special sauce consists of is mayonnaise, ketchup and garlic powder. Real special.
Well, turns out, most craveable fast food sauces have the same mayo-ketchup base, but with a few extra ingredients. Whopper sauce, In-n-Out Burger and Cali Burger all add minced dill pickles and a little bit of sweet and tangy with sugar and vinegar to their mix.
For my Fry Sauce, I use all of the above and a hint of mustard. You can certianly hand mince and mix your Fry Sauce, but the easiest way is to toss all of the ingredients in a small food processor (also my most used of kitchen appliances, I suggest everyone have one!).
You can also hand mix it- there is no wrong way!
I also used them to make my own Copycat In-N-Out Burger Animal Style Fries. If you’ve never had them, you don’t even know what you are missing. If you travel to the West Coast, get off the plane and find the nearest In-N-Out Burger. Life changing, really.
Use fry sauce for dipping french fries, onions rings and Onion Strings or lather it onto a burger, hot dog or chicken sandwich. Make ahead of time and place in the refrigerator for up a week in an air tight container.
