You may be familiar with McDonald’s Big Mac Sauce (which is similar to Thousand Island dressing), In-N-Out Burger Spread, and many other restaurants offer their variation of the popular condiment as well.

How do you make burger sauce?

This recipe could not be easier! There’s not much to it other than stirring several simple ingredients together.

  1. Add mayonnaise, ketchup, sweet pickle juice, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper to a small bowl.
  2. Stir the ingredients together until fully combined.
  3. Cover and store in the fridge. I like to let the sauce sit in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours for the best flavor. Sauce can be stored up to about 2 weeks.
  4. Serve on burgers, sandwiches, wraps and use it as a dip for French fries. Yum!


  • Pickle juice: I prefer the sweetness of the sweet pickle juice. It complements the zing of the ketchup, but if you prefer the tang of dill pickle juice, that will work just as well. You can also sub the pickle juice for about 1-2 tablespoons sweet or dill pickle relish, if you prefer a little crunchiness.
  • Mustard: Some burger sauce recipes use about 1 tablespoon mustard. I personally don’t feel the sauce needs it, but feel free to experiment. You can try adding regular or Dijon mustard to the recipe.
  • Paprika: I love the smoky flavor that smoked paprika provides in this recipe. However, if you only have regular paprika, that will work too. If you like your sauce with a kick of heat, add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper.

Serving recommendations:

Pro tip: I highly recommend making this sauce in advance, so the flavor can really build!

You’re definitely going to want to slather this sauce all over my bacon cheese stuffed burgers, pictured in this post. It’s also such a great addition to my juicy turkey burgers! And be sure to serve your burgers with either my Old Fashioned Potato Salad or my favorite Greek Pasta Salad. Don’t forget Peach Crisp for dessert!
