Homemade Secret HAMBURGER SAUCE
What’s the difference with this zesty hamburger spread verses Thousand Island?
The two share a lot of similarities in ingredients and color, but they’re not exactly the same. Burger sauce is really just a mix of condiments like mayo, mustard, ketchup, and relish with a few extra flavorings thrown in. Thousand Island is a bit more complicated. It’s mayo-based and contains ketchup and relish, but traditional recipes also contain ingredients like hard-boiled egg, onion, and some sort of acid like lemon or vinegar
