Burger Sauce

Go all out! Make your own burger sauce!

Usually, a Burger Sauce is made with a combination of ketchup (tomato sauce) and mayonnaise, occasionally with a Special ingredient mixed in to make it a “Secret Blend”

Start with this basic recipe:

1/2 cup whole egg mayonnaise

2 tablespoons ketchup, tomato sauce (or tomato paste for more bite)

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Salt & pepper to taste

Test drive this with your family, then you can start to make versions with a bit more individuality.

Just remember to make notes and measure everything, that way, when you find a good recipe, you can duplicate it every time and you then have your own “Signature” Sauce!

Think about adding:

Pickle Juice:   Thins the sauce but adds sharpness

Cayene or Chilli powder:   Obvious Adult kick

Chipotle:    Smokey spice

Sage or Rosemary:    Brings a herby finish to the sauce

Sriracha or other Hot Sauce:    More Kick

Vegemite BBQ Sauce


1 medium onion finely chopped

2 tbsp raw sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

160 g tomato passata (⅔ cup)

1.5 tsp Vegemite

1.5 tbsp cider vinegar

⅔ tsp smoked paprika

⅔ tsp Worcestershire sauce

Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion.

When the onion begins to soften add in the sugar.

Keep stirring on a low heat for about 8 minutes till the onions are soft and golden.

Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a low simmer and hold on a low bubble for 10 minutes while stirring the mixture often to prevent sticking.

Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool a little before blending to a smooth puree in a food processor or blender.

Allow the sauce to cool completely before serving.
