Elevate your french fries, onion rings, sandwiches, and burgers to a whole new level with this quick and easy Bacon Jalapeno Fry Sauce!
Elevate your 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!
- A basic fry sauce recipe is mayonnaise and ketchup. That's it. You can adjust the quantities of each to your liking.
- Wear gloves when you dice the jalapeno if it's spicy. This will prevent burns on your skin and eyes later in the day. Trust me on this one. I prefer to discard the seeds.
- Dice both the cooked bacon and jalapenos super fine. This will allow them to incorporate into the sauce more easily as well as maximize their flavor.
- I normally prefer chewy bacon, but for sauces like this I cook it extra crisp. It just tastes better.
- You can cook bacon ends and pieces on the stove or make oven baked bacon.
Serve it with:
- French fries (of course)
- onion rings
- burgers and sandwiches like my California Club Sandwich
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.
