Happiness is making a sauce for dipping chicken nuggets or fingers that can also be used in many, many other ways. This copycat Popeye’s Delta dipping sauce is exactly that. It’s very similar to some of the comeback sauces I’ve made or had. This Cajun-inspired dipping sauce really steps up your dipping game and them some. It also is great on po boy sandwiches. Or any sandwiches for that matter. And even hot dogs. And chicken sandwiches, too!
I really think that a good, strong Creole mustard makes this copycat Popeye’s Delta dipping sauce something amazing. You can use any mustard you want, you don’t have to stick to the original idea at all, but in my mind there’s only one Creole mustard and it’s made by Zatarain’s. The extra kick of the Creole mustard really made for a fantastic spread on a fried shrimp po boy sandwich. Which reminds me. This sauce is also great for dipping fried shrimp or oysters!
I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
