Everyone probably remembers the Special Sauce on the Big Macs at McDonald’s when we were kids. I say “when we were kids” because as grownups, a lot of us will forgo the “special sauce” on our burgers in order to keep our weight down. But every now and then, we need a treat. The Food Lover’s Special Sauce for Burgers is one of those treats!

This is a super simple sauce. Everyone has their own set of ingredients and amounts that they like best. For my Special Sauce, I use mayonnaise, ketchup, dijon mustard, dill pickle relish and a dash of Tabasco sauce. Just whisk it all together in a small bowl and you’ve got a special sauce to top your burger or sandwich!

The Food Lover’s Special Sauce for Burgers

Ingredients:

1/2 c mayonnaise
1/4 c ketchup
1 T dijon mustard
1 T sweet or dill pickle relish (whether you prefer sweet or sour)
Dash of Tabasco sauce (one to two drops)

Method:

Mix together all ingredients in a non-metallic bowl.

Makes about 1 cup of Special Sauce. Refrigerate up to one week.

Variations: Use your own measurements if you like more ketchup or more mustard or more relish or less of anything. This is not a low-fat sauce so cut back on the mayo or use fat-free mayo if you are watching your fat intake. You could substitute plain Greek yogurt for the mayo in this sauce.
