As you wish !

So here’s the famous recipe! Well, you must think it’s quite simple…! Ans Yes it is! But a good sauce is not necessarily complicated to make ! You just have to mix ingredients that will go well together and you have your sauce ! So, it’s the same, according to your taste you can always modify it ! Let’s say that it’s already a good start, then it’s up to you to make it according to the burger or the sandwich you’re going to make!

The Mayonnaise

As for mayonnaise, if you don’t want to bother making a homemade one, it also works with store-bought mayo! Personally when I’m thrown into a good burger or sandwich, I like to go all the way! And a mayo is not very difficult to make. It must also be said that homemade mayonnaise is tastier and richer than store-bought mayo! So: WE LOVE!

Heavy ceam or yogurt ?

Here I’ve put some heavy cream, because I find it tastier! But you can make the same sauce with plain yoghurt or greek yogurt, it will be lighter! It also gives a different taste, but if you like it, it’s quite possible! Speaking of light, I also put sugar in this recipe, but you can do without if you want ! The ketchup is already sweetened so it’s quite possible!

Those little extras

What I like in this sauce is the grated garlic and pickle! I love garlic in general, I use it in almost all my dishes! And the pickle gives a sour touch that I love! It really gives a little twist to the sauce that makes all the difference in my opinion!

An all-purpose sauce

I made this sauce especially for a burger, and by the way it can really go in any burger ! I think it would go very well in sandwiches or croque-monsieurs ! Or on blinis, pita bread, salty pancakes ! Really it’s a sauce that goes very well with raw vegetables and proteins, in many recipes ! So enjoy it, treat yourself!
