French Fry Sauce

"Absolutely THE best version of the recipe out there! The secret ingredient is vinegar, it smooths out the bumps and adds a little "zing". Whatever you do, do NOT substitute miracle whip for mayo, even if you hate mayo, because it will not taste the same. This is good on burgers, chicken nuggets, hash browns, french fries, pretty much anything you would put mayo & ketchup on."

  • Mix and you're done!
  • I usually don't measure the ingredients. To make a big batch, I just add Mayo to the Ketchup bottle until it looks like the right color and tastes good, then add the vinegar until it is smooth and it tastes right. I always encourage people to play with your food!

    Utah is where fry sauce was started. Only use mayo and ketchup to your taste. Arctic Circle in Salt Lake City is where it all started.

    NOT a Mayo fan at all! Prefer sour cream, or plain yogurt. Added a little spicy brown mustard to the ketchup. Used apple cider vinegar (it's all I had). Tastes really good! Try it for yourself!

    I worked in a Government Kitchen for 20 years, and I came up with this "sauce spread" for anything that needed something special. My formula was 2 gallon's mayo, 2 gallons ketchup, 1/2 gallon yellow mustard. I've had people put it on scrambled eggs plain pasta, mashed potatoes, all kinds sandwiches, salads, French Fries, hamburgers, hot dogs, plain rice, any kind of cooked chicken, roast beef...This sauce went over very well with people...They really liked it. The batch that I made was a two day supply.
