Homemade Fry Sauce

This stuff is addicting! Once you try it, you’ll never eat french fries without it. It tastes similar to my homemade burger sauce, but has a smoother consistency without relish. You can even use it for hamburgers too. Just spread a little on the bun before serving!

I was first introduced to fry sauce when visiting family in Utah several years ago and I instantly fell in love. It is the only sauce I want to dip my fries in. Okay, or maybe some homemade ranch dressing or garlic aioli too. It’s perfectly creamy with a sweet and tangy taste. It only takes a couple minutes to whip up and adds the perfect flavor to homemade french fries. So yummy!

Fry sauce ingredients.

4 Simple Ingredients

  • Ketchup: Adds sweetness and gives it that famous orange/red color
  • Mayo: Makes it super creamy and helps balance out the tang from the vinegar and ketchup
  • Seasoned salt: Lawry’s is my favorite and adds great flavor
  • Vinegar: I used white vinegar, but you could use apple cider vinegar, relish or even pickle juice

How to Make Fry Sauce

  • COMBINE all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  • STIR the mixture with a spoon until smooth and creamy.
  • TASTE and adjust seasonings as needed.

TIP: For an extra punch of flavor, try adding a pinch of garlic powder or dash of hot sauce. You can also add a spoonful or two more ketchup if desired.
