Being from Pittsburgh you would think that I would always have at least one bottle of Heinz ketchup in my fridge at all times. Not so. My husband hates ketchup. So instead of buying it and letting it go bad, I’ve resorted to stashing the little squeeze packets from restaurants. (I’m really not kidding). One day over the summer while grilling burgers, the unthinkable happened – I had no more squeeze packets! Just use mustard you say? There were three of us and only enough mustard for half a burger. I began rummaging frantically through my fridge to see what I could conjure up. Here’s what came out of it:
- Equal parts mustard (yellow or dijon) and worcestershire sauce
- The tiniest pinch of salt and pepper
The sauce is a tangy and subtly sweet mixture that works great on burgers, hot dogs, and even steak. Feel free to experiment with additions to the recipe or on different foods. It’s really versatile!
XO, Happy eating.
