Mississippi Comeback Sauce…the southern cousin to Fry Sauce!

Quick! What’s your favorite condiment!?!? For me it would have to be MUSTARD…followed VERY closely by a Utah tradition…..Fry Sauce.

Here in Utah, when it comes to sauce….it’s all about the Fry Sauce!  But in Mississippi…..apparently Comeback Sauce is the queen mother of condiments!

It’s supposedly a lot like the Bloomin’ Onion sauce at Outback and goes with EVERYTHING….except Cheerios. :-)

It can be used on burgers, as a sandwich spread, smeared on saltines, as a salad dressing (think Thousand Island with a kick!), as a dip for raw veggies, or shrimp, or onion rings, or french fries, well, you get the picture.

Most of the recipes I read for Comeback Sauce agree on the proportions of mayonnaise to ketchup to chili sauce, but after that it’s pretty much  up to personal preference. Personally, they had me at “1 cup mayonnaise”.

So without further ado….I bring you…

Mississippi Comeback Sauce

From the kitchen of “Syrup and Biscuits

Makes a pint jar full.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chili sauce
1 heaping teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup light olive oil
juice of one lemon

Mix all ingredients well and store in refrigerator overnight.  It needs to sit to let the flavors become “acquainted”.

Use on EVERYTHING (except cheerios)!

And that’s today’s….

    Does it taste like fry sauce? My boys fell in love with "Some Dude's Fry Sauce" last summer when we were in Utah. I found one bottle in a specialty store once we got back to Missouri. They are rationing it. I never considered making our own.

      Fry sauce is simple – just mayo and ketchup. I like mine heavy on the mayo, but all you need to do is mix the two until you get the taste you want. I have also had a version that was mayo, ketchup, and barbeque sauce that is equally delicious!
