Come Back Sauce

Do you have any family members who could be classified as "dippers?" We have several generations of them. No matter what they're eating, it's got to have a condiment added to it. My grand-daughter has even eaten a honey bun with ranch dressing. While you are absorbing that combination, she gets it honest. She inherited the ranch and/or ketchup on anything to be consumed gene from her Daddy.

Back a few months ago, Andy noticed we ran out of JD white sauce for his grilled chicken. I told him it kind of reminded me of something I'd eaten in Mississippi at Hal and Mal's many moons ago and had read about in one of the many Sweet Potato Queens books I owned (where I found out about Death Corn Five). Needless to say, I couldn' put my hand on my book so I Googled it and found this verion from Southern Bite which was perfect!

I didn't change a thing from the recipe and now I have to keep a batch on hand at all times. It's good on just about anything. Andy eats it on chicken, shrimp, crab cakes, crackers, etc. Go ahead and pick up a condiment bottle with a cap on it...or two or three. It's that good. I mix a double batch every time I can. For some reason, chili sauce is hard to find in our small town. I buy several bottles any time I see it so we don't run out.

3/4 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
1/3 cup Heinz Chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspooon onion powder.

Whisk all the ingredients until well blended. Pour into an airtight container and refrigerate for a few hours before using.


  1. Thanks for talking about this sauce. Since George works out of town & I work in a kitchen, I like to eat out, he eats in so I have been using the Home Chef and George loves them because it's like eating out but we stay home. He is excited to see what comes FedEx. For me I am trying things I never have before. They had a sauce in there that reminds me of this sauce. Since he liked that meal I will be duplicating it (recipe cards included in meal) this weekend. Can't wait to use a few of your recipes too.

  2. Hi Diane! I just fixed a batch of Come Back sauce to eat with a couple of drunk chickens Andy just pulled off the grill. We love this stuff! Hopefully you can send a bottle of this back with George the next time he goes out. I'll have to check out Home Chef. Thanks for checking out my blog!!!

    1. I have made it and it was awesome.e on my baked chicken I made last week. We have have had a compromise since I got the new job, I cook one meal he cooks a meal so right now its been great. I had missed cooking. But still enjoy the Home Chef from time to time. So glad you have the blog found some great new things to try. By the way have you tried the Zucchini Jam recipe yet?

    2. Zucchini Jam? I have not heard about it. Sounds interesting for sure. I'm glad you liked the sauce. It's simple but tasty. Hope you are liking your new job!

  3. Love it and I willsend you the Jam recipe. When it says jello we have made a variety of versions. George's favorite is the lemon lime. But we have yet to find a combo we really don't like much less a straight version.

  4. Yummy, it looks perfect sauce. Thanks for sharing the recipe, will be having sauce for the prawns I just brought.
