Elevate your french fries, onion rings, sandwiches, and burgers to a whole new level with this quick and easy Bacon Jalapeno Fry Sauce!
People love fry sauce. I don’t exactly know why. Perhaps it’s because we get stuck in a rut where we just put the standard fixin’s on our burgers or we get bored dipping our fries in plain old ketchup. Ask anyone – fry sauce makes most things better. Its a proven scientific fact. Know what else people love? Bacon & jalapeno!
Much like peanut butter & jelly, chocolate + wine, and chips & salsa, bacon was pretty much made to be paired with jalapeno. Let me rephrase. Bacon is perfectly fine on its own. Rather, jalapeno was made to be paired with bacon. Yeah, that’s better.
I feel kind of funny giving you a recipe for fry sauce because it’s mayonnaise and ketchup. We don’t really need a recipe for that, now do we? I suppose the point of this post is more of an idea than a recipe. Because, after all, you can change the quantities of each ingredient and still have something delicious to dip your fries in or smother your burger in.
Speaking of burgers, this is actually a burger that is made of 50% grass fed ground meat and 50% ground up applewood smoked bacon. Yes, you read that right. I fed my family beef and bacon burgers for dinner on a white bun with french fries and fry sauce. Before you brand me as the worst mother ever, I’ll have you know that my kids each drank a glass of freshly pressed juice made from beet greens, apple, carrot, lemon, ginger, and pomegranate seeds before dinner. It’s all about balance, amIright?
So, next time you want to shake things up with your all-time favorite foods, make this fry sauce…and bacon jalapeno deviled eggs. I told you everything is better with bacon & jalapeno.
