Fire-Eater Burger Sauce

I love just putting the ‘usual’ condiments on my burgers. My favorite is mayonnaise. If find that odd since I definitely did not grow up a mayo fan. Sometimes though, I need a little kick to my burger. Since I absolutely love Fire-Eater seasoning, I knew it would find its way into this nice creamy, but a bit spicy, Fire-Eater burger sauce.
Fire-Eater Burger SauceIf you don’t have Sriracha on hand (???), then you can certainly substitute your favorite hot sauce, from the mild to the wild. Oh, and yes, this sauce is also fantastic on sandwiches or wraps. And now that I ponder it more, I bet it would be great on grilled chicken wings. I’m gonna try that next!

Also check out my version of Nancy’s Special Burger Sauce, copycat Smashburger Sauce, or another one of my seriously spicy favorites, 18000 Island sauce. For a little kick, make some Angry Whopper sauce.

Copycat Shake Shack Sauce

I was jonesin’ pretty bad for a diner burger the other day. Ya know, messy, with traditional toppings. With a great sauce. So I did a quick search around and came across this copycat of the sauce at the Shake Shack. It’s very easy to make, using ingredients that I always have on hand. It really adds a nice, smooth, flavor to a burger. It’s not a big change from what you would normally put on a burger, it just has all the great tastes in one sauce.
Copycat Shake Shack SauceI love making simple, yet delicious, sauces for burgers. Check out my copycat McDonald’s Big Macs, with that awesome McDonald’s sauce. Or my grilled burgers topped with Nancy’s Special burger sauce. It’s similar to McDonald’s sauce, but with a great spicy twist.

18000 Island Dressing

You could put boring ketchup on your hamburger. Or maybe some mayonnaise. You could slather on some Thousand Island dressing. Or, you could just skip all that and go with big flavor. Bold flavor. And kick. 18000 Island Dressing is truly 18 times more flavorful than Thousand Island dressing. There’s nothing boring about it, thanks to a healthy dose of chopped jalapenos.
18000 Island Dressing18000 Island Dressing isn’t just for burgers either. It’s great on sandwiches, or our favorite, wraps. And hot dogs (if you haven’t tried mayonnaise-based sauces on your hot dogs you should, it’s a very welcome change from just using mustard). Anywhere you want bold flavor, it brings it.

Check out some of my other great burger sauces, like Nancy’s, a copycat of Smashburger’s sauce,¬† and of course, a copycat of the sauce on the McDonald’s Big Mac.
