Sauce Your Burger Like the Pros

We’ve talked about how a sauce can make or break a steak.

Well, the same goes for a great burger. Naturally!

Famous restaurants are KNOWN for their burger sauces. So why not replicate them at home?

The Daily Meal has the 411 on some well-known sauces so you can do just that. Check out their recipes for Big Mac Sauce and more!

Stay on your patio and enjoy all the flavor of the restaurant down the street. Sounds perfect to me!

Happy saucing!

  1. Melt bacon fat so that it is a liquid, but not hot.
  2. Place egg yolks and lemon juice in a stainless steel bowl and whisk until frothy. Place metal bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk constantly until it’s ribbony and has tripled in volume. It should have a light but firm consistency.
  3. Remove from heat and very gradually add bacon fat until it is all incorporated.
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  5. It can be heated back up over a double boiler a little if needed, but don’t let it get any hotter than 140 degrees or it will break.
