Easy Homemade French Fry Sauce
Easy homemade french fry sauce is my go-to recipe when I have fries at home. Making this sauce is so simple that I can’t buy commercially made sauces anymore.
I’ll confess that I have a serious love of french fries. Who doesn’t love crispy fried potatoes? But I also think potatoes are one of the most versatile foods because there are a million ways to enjoy them. Ok, maybe not a million, but it’s still a lot of delicious ways to enjoy potatoes.

Easy Homemade French Fry Sauce Directions
This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Sometimes I’ll make fries just so I can finish the sauce because it is so delicious. That’s one of my secret 3am snacks when I’m busy working, and there’s no one around to judge me or make me share.
Easy Homemade French Fry Sauce Notes
This easy homemade french fry sauce is a perfect balance of sweet and spicy, in my opinion. The first time I made this, I made it way too spicy, and I had to experiment and practice to find a good balance. I love spicy food, but I also want a good quality flavor, not just my face being on fire as I’m eating something. If you want it hotter, add 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon paprika, and you can omit the sugar.
Once you’ve made fries, sprinkle with french fry seasoning, then dip in this easy homemade french fry sauce for a delicious side dish or snack. I love using it on my homemade garlic parmesan potato wedges or tater tots.
Why I Love This Recipe
I love this recipe because it is so simple to make with ingredients I always have in my pantry. Nathan always goes for plain ketchup, but that’s never been my thing. Ketchup just screams boring to me. I want fry sauce or ranch dressing when it comes to dipping my fries.
If I’m in the mood for a spicy sauce, I add in red pepper flakes and that will satisfy the craving for spicy food.
I also really appreciate any limited ingredient recipes. Simple things are so often the best when they are done correctly. This recipe has seven ingredients that are readily available and we all likely have on hand already. There’s no real reason not to make this myself instead of buying a commercially made sauce that has a bunch of preservatives and ingredients I can’t pronounce in it.
Nathan told me to make it a point to mention this recipe has been approved by him. He hates mayonnaise and ate this sauce and liked it. It always amazes me when he eats things I’m not expecting him to and enjoys it. I call that husband-approved food.
I also use this sauce as a spread on deli sandwiches instead of plain mayonnaise for an added depth of flavor to something that is normally so basic and just a snack that requires no effort when I’m busy working.
Make it Vegan
The best part about this recipe is it isn’t difficult to make it vegan. The key ingredients that need to be substituted are vegan mayonnaise and vegan Worcestershire sauce. Those are the only substitutions needed to make this a completely vegan recipe, and that makes it really simple.
One of my closest friends is vegan, and I’ve learned to read ingredient lists every time I buy something, because some of the most obscure things can and will contain animal products. In this case, it is the Worcestershire sauce, as it contains anchovies.
