What is Fry Sauce?

Fry sauce is known in Utah, southern Idaho and some parts of Oregon. It became famous quickly as at fast food restaurants. Now, it is sold in local grocery stores and famous throughout these main states. This recipe is so simple and full of flavor.

This condiment is usually served with French fries, burgers and wraps. Of course, your imagination can be endless once you make it for yourself. The original recipe is made up of ketchup, mayonnaise and a variation of spices and liquid ingredients to create an amazing combination. It is a MUST make for sure!

Fry Sauce Ingredients:

Seriously! So easy to make and minimal amount of ingredients to make this sauce recipe. It is one of the best and tastes SO good. Once you start dipping you won’t be able to stop.

  • Mayonnaise: This is the base of the sauce recipe. You can even use a variation of mayonnaise if you prefer.
  • Ketchup: Adds in the sweetness and brings out the red coloring in the sauce.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: This is loads of flavor added into the sauce.
  • Pickle Brine: It sounds weird, but it is pickle juice essentially. It is vinegar and water mixed together to give it a tangy taste.
  • Paprika: Add some color and heat all at once.
  • Cayenne: Flavorful with some heat in this fry sauce.

How to Make Fry Sauce Recipe:

Again, I can’t stress enough how simple this recipe easy. This is a tried and true favorite that tastes so good all the time.

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl: In a small bowl combine mayonnaise ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, pickle brine, paprika, and a pinch of cayenne.

Variations of Fry Sauce:

Mix and match ingredients to have endless amounts of sauces for your fries and burgers. Try it with a little more heat or add in some fun juices for a sweet and tangy fry sauce.

Here are a few ideas to get started on trying:

  • Mayonnaise: It is best to enjoy the thick, rich texture of real mayonnaise but substitute it for miracle whip or a veganiese mayo for a preferred taste.
  • Spices: Black pepper, garlic powder or garlic salt are great ways to add in a strong flavoring. Just start with a dash and continue to add it as you go for the flavor you are hoping for.
  • Heat: Make this as hot and spicy as you would like. Tabasco sauce, hot sauce or some red pepper flakes are great ways to bring on some extra heat.
  • Juices: If you are not a fan of pickle juice try apple cider vinegar, lemon juice or even horseradish to give your mouth a kick of tanginess.

How Long is Fry Sauce Good? 

It is always good to store fry sauce in an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator. It is best to use it within 3 to 5 days from making it. You can make it ahead of time but again, make sure the fry sauce is used within 3 to 5 days. When ready to serve, simply stir it together and enjoy cold! I do not recommend freezing this sauce. It would separate when thawed and have water condensation.
