I cooked (and ate!) a lot of nice food when I was back home in Sweden in August. But my family and I have a tendency to get a bit overboard sometimes. So one day we decided to not make an elaborate three course meal. Instead we had these yummy homemade burgers with a homemade version of the Shake Shack sauce. So good!
I first saw the Fake Shack sauce recipe on Smitten Kitchen’s wonderful blog and knew I just had to make it. And it hit the spot just as I thought it would. My parents liked it too and from now on this is definitely my go-to burger sauce.
Fake Shack sauce, serves 4
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen’s recipe.
60 ml mayonnaise (homemade or Hellman’s)
1 1/2 tsp juice from a pickle jar
1 1/2 tsp ketchup
1 tsp yellow mustard
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
Mix the ingredients, taste and adjust the flavour until you’re happy with the balance. Serve with burgers.
