I’ve noticed a lot of restaurants I go to have a “special sauce” that you can add to the burgers. So one day I asked what was in that special sauce and realized it’s basically all your favorite toppings mixed into one delicious sauce.

This copycat recipe tastes just like one you’ll find at a Burger joint. It takes 5 minutes to whip up and adds so much flavor to your burger. I also love to dip my french fries or sweet potato fries in it. Or use it as a dressing when I make a low carb burger in a bowl or lettuce wrap burger. YUM! It really is the best burger sauce.
