Secret Ingredient Fry Sauce Recipe
So I'm pretty sure that Fry Sauce is a West Coast thing? That's why you might not have heard about it until now.
It wasn't until I moved to Utah that I started noticing "Fry Sauce" or "Fry Dip" in tons of restaurants when we went out to eat.
You can even buy it bottled. Seriously?!? Where has this been my whole life?!

It's basically mayonnaise and ketchup mixed together with a few extra ingredients. I'm going be sharing an extra special secret ingredient with you today.
I'm just saying... it's easy to make so I probably wouldn't buy it bottled unless it had some serious secret stuff inside the bottle that I couldn't re-create at home you guys. But since I can re-create, I did! And now you'll be able to make this homemade fry sauce, too!
You're welcome. 🙂
I'm a dip kind of girl. I eat it on everything! I love my ranch, barbecue, easy fry sauce and tartar sauce the most! My family *might* make fun of me since I eat a little more than I should.
I always order extra of whatever sauce when we go out to eat. They always say "you're never gonna eat that much sauce Shauna" and I always prove them wrong. Always!
This DIY fry sauce is great on fries obviously... but it's great on burgers or sandwiches too. For all you fellow dip lovers like me!
What is Fry Sauce?
Traditionally, a French fry sauce recipe consists of two parts of mayonnaise to one part ketchup.
How Do You Make Fry Sauce?
It's crazy simple - just pop your ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Then serve with whatever goodies your mouth desires.
My husband says it's especially amazing on homemade bacon cheeseburgers.
Fry Sauce Ingredients
I looked at a bunch of different recipes for fry sauce and kind of blended them together and picked out my favorite parts of each of them.
I decided to not use vinegar but instead used a few vinegar based things that would enhance the flavor and boy-oh-boy did it.
For my fry sauce recipe, we'll be gathering a handful of ingredients.
You'll need mayonnaise, ketchup, garlic powder, ground red pepper, salt, yellow mustard, dill pickle juice and ground black pepper.
How to Make Fry Sauce
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
It's the best fry sauce recipe I've ever tried. Perfect for French fries, onion rings, burgers, chicken tenders... really, I could go on.
It's good enough that I would happily drink it. So basically I think anything is improved with this DIY fry sauce on top.
Since this fry sauce recipe is mayonnaise based, this recipe only makes 1-2 servings because I prefer it fresh made. You can easily double or triple the recipe if you're serving more people.
Or if you really love it and want it all to yourself. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this fry sauce soon!
