I love just putting the ‘usual’ condiments on my burgers. My favorite is mayonnaise, which is odd since I definitely did not grow up a mayo fan. Sometimes though, I need a little kick to my burger and 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. If 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!
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. I 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.
You could put boring ketchup on your hamburger. Or maybe some mayonnaise. Or 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 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.
I’m a fan of the special sauce on Big Macs, but this sauce takes the idea to a new level. I pan-fried a few patties and made some straight-forward burgers, slathering the buns with Nancy’s special burger sauce that has a great kick thanks to sriracha. If you don’t have pickle relish on hand, add diced jalapenos. Or, substitute jalapenos even if you do have pickle relish on hand.
I make a huge batch of this sauce from Nancy Fuller and keep it on hand. It’s not just great on burgers. Slather it on cold cut sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, paninis, hot dogs… You name it. Heck, dip fries in it. Potato chips. Everything you can get your hands on.
