Fry Sauce is something we love to make with one of our quick go to meals; hamburgers and homemade steak fries. This time we thought we could kick up the flavor and add some spice! What is nice about this recipe is that if you want to make the ketchup part and stop there you can. If you want to keep going and make the Spicy Fry Sauce you can do that as well. So, in essence this is two recipes in one!
This recipe is easy for any Little Chef to complete. It is quick which means even the smallest with short attention spans can stick to it. First, in a saucepan melt the butter and garlic over medium heat. Let the garlic saute in the butter for a couple minutes.
Add in the red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper and ketchup. Let it cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Give it a taste, if you like the spicy ketchup you can stop here. If you like Spicy Fry Sauce you only need to add two more ingredients; mayo and dill pickle relish. Measure out 1 cup mayo and 3 teaspoons dill pickle relish. Combine well.
That’s it! Enjoy it on your fries or on your hamburger! We like it both ways. My Little Chefs did not notice the heat on their hamburger, but they did notice it in varying degrees in the fry sauce. A quick make ahead side dish that would be great is Creamy Cucumbers.
Before you ask, yes we normally serve our hamburgers on regular sandwich bread because that is what we always have for school lunches. Rarely does this meal get planned ahead and we actually have hamburger buns to toast and use. In our house real hamburger buns are a treat!
