Kicked up condiments will take your burger, bratwurst, sandwich, or wrap to a whole new level!
We all use the same old boring condiments for our burgers, brats, sandwiches, wraps, and fries. You know…mustard, kethcup, and mayonnaise. By adding some extra seasonings like adobo sauce, garlic, lemon, or horseradish, you can create entirely new flavors to spice up your favorite hand held food.
The first kicked up condiment is my special sauce. Who knew that by mixing those boring condiments together something so flavorful would be the result. The recipe is super simple…2 parts ketchup, 1 part mustard, and 1 part mayonnaise. My husband learned this recipe when he worked at a fast food restaurant as a teen ager, so you know it’s legit! Special sauce is my favorite condiment for a hamburger! It’s also really great for dipping french fries!
How about kickin’ up some mayonnaise? The second kicked up condiment is my garlic aioli. Garlic aioli is just mayonnaise with some lemon juice and some raw grated garlic. I use my handy dandy microplane to grate the garlic really finely. Use as much or as little lemon and garlic as you like. The more lemon juice you add, the more zing you will add and the more garlic you add, the spicier the sauce will be. I love garlic aioli on a sandwich or a wrap! It’s also really tasty on a hamburger!
Next, is my chipotle ketchup. Chipotle ketchup is ketchup with some adobo sauce from a can of chipotle in adobo. Chipotle in adobo is a can of smoked chipotles in a spicy sauce that is found near the jarred jalapeños or canned green chilis. Once again, add as much as you like. The more adobo sauce you add, the spicier the ketchup. Chipotle ketchup is great for a burger or fries if you like it spicy!
And finally, you have horseradish dijon mustard, which is dijon mustard with some horseradish. You will find horseradish in a jar in the dairy section of your grocery store. A little bit of horseradish goes a long way. If you’re needing your sinuses cleared up, use a good amount. Otherwise, just a small amount will add a ton of flavor. Horseradish dijon mustard along with some sauerkraut is my favorite condiment for a brat!
I mix up my condiments and store them in the refrigerator in mason jars where they will keep for about two weeks.
Add an extra punch of flavor to your burger, brat, sandwich, or wrap by kicking up your condiments!
