Freddy's Fry Sauce

What is Freddy’s Famous Fry Sauce?

You can consider Freddy’s famous fry sauce as a cross between mayonnaise, burger sauce, mustard, and ketchup. Essentially it is a great all-rounder. While we appreciate it is called ‘fry sauce’, you can use it with various dishes. It makes the ideal dip for onion rings, nuggets as a burger topping, and much more. 

They even offer a spicy version with added jalapenos, so if you like it a little spicy, then see our tips and tricks section below.

What Does Freddy’s Fry Sauce Taste Like?

Freddy’s fry sauce is really tasty. It is a little bit creamy and just a little bit tangy. We’d say it was similar to ketchup, but that would be doing it a disservice. It is much tangier than ketchup, but not unpleasantly so. 

We’ve dipped a fair few fries since we discovered how to make Freddy’s fry sauce recipe, and we’d say that it is a little similar to hotdog mustard mixed with ketchup. Because the recipe contains a little pickle juice, it certainly has an acidic element.

However, there are some ‘secret’ ingredients. Freddy’s fry sauce is designed to go perfectly with Freddy’s fries. Makes sense, right?

Freddy’s fries are coated in a special seasoning, which also features in their sauce.

But, don’t worry, we will share how to do this too!

How Do You Make Freddy’s Fry Sauce?

Making Freddy’s fry sauce is easy, but it is two-stage.

The first stage is creating Freddy’s fry seasoning, which we’ll use sprinkled over fries and in the sauce. 

It is easy to make, and we are pretty sure that you’ll have all of the ingredients to hand at home.

The bulk of the seasoning is actually made up of salt and sugar. From there, we simply combine a few spoons of each with paprika, pepper, turmeric, and some onion and garlic powder. You can do this in a bowl or jar, and it keeps pretty much indefinitely. Winner winner, fries for dinner!

See? We told you it was easy.

It doesn’t really get much easier when it comes to making the sauce. You’ll need a spoon and a mixing bowl and that as far as it goes for kitchen equipment. 

The bulk of the sauce is actually made up of mayonnaise, with a few little supplements. These are a dash of ketchup, a small splash of pickle juice, a dash of hot sauce, and a small teaspoon of fry seasoning. From there, it is just a case of mixing it up.
