Fry sauce is a creamy dipping sauce for french fries, but it can also be used as a dip for onion rings, chicken nuggets, and other foods as well.
Fry sauce is one of the many variations of a ketchup and mayo mixture, such as Thousand Island dressing and Yum Yum Sauce. A similar Mayoketchup is popular in Puerto Rico and a Mayochup is now in production. This is a more zested up condiment than that though.
This particular fry sauce recipe adds sour cream for richer results.

Some have been known to substitute Ranch dressing for the mayonnaise too. In that case, I would probably go with a more basic fry sauce and skip adding a few of the seasonings in this recipe, such as the garlic and onion powders… and probably the mustard.
As long as you have mayonnaise and ketchup in there and you like the results, there is really no “wrong” way to make it.

- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together until well combined.
