Burger sauce, often characterized by its creamy texture and tangy flavor, is a staple condiment in American cuisine, though its exact origins are debated. Some claim its inception was alongside the first hamburgers, while others argue it was a later addition designed to enhance the flavors of fast-food burgers. Regardless, this sauce has become an essential element in burger gastronomy, elevating the taste experience with a blend of spices, acidity, and creaminess. It is typically served with traditional beef burgers but is equally delicious with chicken burgers, veggie burgers, and as a dipping sauce for fries.

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard until well blended. This trio forms the creamy, tangy base of the sauce.
  • Stir in the pickle relish, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. These ingredients add depth and a slight crunch to the sauce.
  • Mix in the vinegar for a bit of acidity, which cuts through the richness of the mayonnaise. If using, add the hot sauce for a spicy kick and the sugar to round out the acidity.
  • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper according to your taste preferences.
  • Although the burger sauce can be used immediately, chilling it in the refrigerator for at least an hour allows the flavors to meld together, enhancing the overall taste.

Storage Tips

Burger sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. The high acidity and salt content act as natural preservatives, extending its shelf life.

Useful Properties of the Main Ingredient

Mayonnaise, the primary ingredient in burger sauce, provides a source of healthy fats, particularly if made with oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids. It also contains vitamin E, which is an antioxidant.
