Comeback Dipping Sauce

The sauce of all sauces!
You'll be dunking and dunking again with this one.

My brain is a little fried right now, but I NEEDED to share this sauce recipe with you guys before one more person asked me, "where is that dipping sauce recipe you promised over a month ago?"

This girl got busy, that is what happened.

I've spent the last two plus days traveling around Eastern Iowa with other food bloggers learning all about pork.  Yes, pork.  Include with that, wine and early settlers and fancy restaurant dinners and lasting friendships.  So, I'm tired.  But it was also amazing and I cannot wait to chat about it in a future blog post.  Stay tuned!

I mean tonight, after serving dinner to the fam and then two hours later having an ever-so-slight hunger pain, I opened the fridge to see a leftover bratwurst staring back at me.  I love pork, but I have eaten SO much of it the past few days, the sight of that brat about put me over the edge.

I settled for a piece of string cheese and a chocolate chip cookie.  About as well rounded as I could manage at that moment.

Back on track tomorrow, back on track tomorrow, back on track tomorrow...

So, this SAUCE.

The sauce that people have been bugging for me to share.  Is it a sauce?  Or a dip?  Frankly I was a bit confused too, so I am calling it a dipping sauce.  As you can dip a crispy fried nugget in it or you can swipe a layer of it on the bun of your sandwich.

I put it on my B.L.T. last week.  Epic my friends.  Epic.

This sauce comes from the south {Mississippi and Louisiana}from what I'm told.  I'm about as far removed from the southern states as I am Prince Harry, but the sauce intrigued me so one day I dabbled around with it.  My second batch turned out perfectly and I nibbled on it with various things {fries, sandwiches, etc.} for the rest of the week.

It is mayo based, so if you are not a mayo fan {I know who you are}, this might not be your thing, but definitely give it a chance.  It has a bit of spice, some tang and is really just different than any other sauce I've had or tired.

It does NOT taste like ranch dressing in case you were wondering.  Just throwing that out there.

So here it is!  Make a batch and watch your kids drool.

Comeback Dipping Sauce


1 c. mayo
4 T. ketchup
2 T. hot sauce
3 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. pepper

1.  In a bowl combine all ingredients until smooth.  Let it chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.
2.  Serve with fried anything {french fries, chicken, pickles, mushrooms, etc.} or use as a topping on sandwiches.

I've always said if I would ever land a cookbook deal, one chapter or section would be devoted completely, 100% to dips and sauces.

I kinda think they make the world go round.

Here are a few more of my favorites!
