How to Make Burger Sauce

This irresistible burger sauce is ready to serve in just about 5 minutes! Measure out all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir them together. It’s so good, that you’re going to want to keep this on-hand at all times!

  1. Mix Ingredients: Add all of the sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Test the Flavor: Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking if needed.
  3. Refrigerate: Chill until ready to serve. The longer it chills the more the flavors meld.
  4. Enjoy: Use as a sauce on burgers or as a dipping sauce for fries.

Change up the Flavor

Burger sauce can be made just the way you like it! Here are some ideas to adjusting the flavors.

  • Mayonnaise Substitution: It is best to enjoy the thick, rich texture of real mayonnaise but substitute it for Miracle Whip or a veganaise mayo for a preferred taste.
  • Adjust the Sweetness: If you like your burger sauce a little sweeter, add a pinch of granulated sugar. It will help balance out the salty, tangy flavor.
  • Heat: Make this burger sauce spicy if you want! Try adding a dash or two of hot sauce like Tabasco sauce. You can also sprinkle in some cayenne pepper to bring on some extra heat.

Storing Leftovers

Be sure to save any leftover sauce! This burger sauce is so versatile and can be used for more than just burgers. My kids love this sauce with a quick and easy batch of air fryer French fries!

  • In the Refrigerator: Store burger sauce in an airtight jar or container for 4-5 days. Give it a quick stir before using it!
