Fry Sauce

Print Friendly


When we moved there from Kansas to Idaho, we would go to a fast foods place and they would ask us if we would like some fry sauce for our French fries. We didn’t have a clue what it was but we found out fast and it was delicious. You don’t need to use it just for fries either. You can put it on hamburgers too.

Homemade Fry Sauce

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup ketchup
To taste; garlic salt, salt, Worcestershire sauce
Buttermilk or half and half* (optional)

Mix it all together. *If too thick, use the buttermilk or half and half to thin.

    This recipe has been around for a long time! If you add some lemon juice to it, it is called Marie Rose sauce, which is usually served with fried fish. They also make this sauce in Belgian fry shops. :-]

    Wow, I use to combine ketchup and mayo together, put in some chopped sweet pickles to use as a dressing resembling thousand island.

    This might be similar to the sauce that Outback serves with their blooming onion. I’ve never heard of fry sauce but it looks good.

    This is awesome 😉 :) My dad and I both love fry sauce. He makes his own now, and in addition to what you have here, he adds a little bit of sweet pickle relish. I’m going to send him this link. He’ll really enjoy this 😉 Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :) :) :)

    Haha! I’ve been making my own fry sauce for years and I didn’t even know it. I just thought it was my own strange combination. It really is delicious.

    Never been asked if I want this in a restaurant. Sounds like Chik Fil a’s Chik fil a sauce. my daughter told me about it and once I tried it, I loved it.

      I think it depends on what part of the country you are from. We had never even heard of it in Kansas or Colorado but was asked if we wanted when we lived in the northwest.

    Thank you for the recipe. I hadn’t thought to thin the sauce but will do so in the future. The most outstanding fry sauce I have found is a combination of cocktail sauce and tartar sauce! Sprinkle the fries with malt vinegar and dip them in the sauce.

    02.16.14 I made this and it is good. I think I still like my concoction better, though, which is about 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 ranch dressing. Not TOO much different, actually. THX for the GREAT site and books. Luv them and you all!
