  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • tablespoons rice vinegar
  • tablespoons salted sweet cream butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika


  • Add all of the sauce ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and whisk until the ingredients are completely incorporated and smooth.
  • Spoon the sauce into a squeeze bottle or jar with a lid. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.


  • If you are a fan of this yummy sauce, make a double batch and keep it in the fridge for future dipping.
  • A spoon may not be able to combine this sauce well enough. A whisk should give you the desired smooth texture.
  • The longer the sauce sits before you use it, the better as it gives time for the flavors to meld.
