Come Back Sauce

A few nights ago I prepared baked onion rings for dinner and had a taste for something different to dip my rings into.

While flipping through the cookbook Sweet Tea and Screen doors, I found a recipe for Come Back Sauce. Where have I been? Under a rock? I did an internet search on this sauce and it happens to be a very popular southern sauce.

The name itself rings southern. It brings to mind the southern saying: "Ya'll come back now ya hear?" Come back sauce does make you want to come back for more.

The cookbook tells a story about the sauce and that it originated in Mississippi. The ingredients mimic a thousand island dressing. However, this sauce is oh so much more!

I used the sauce for onion rings. I plan on taste tasting this sauce on chicken and a sandwich or two soon. Oh my shall I mention trying it on fried okra.

The sauce can be stored up to a week in the fridge. There wasn’t a drop left here at my house!

Come Back Sauce (adapted from Sweet Tea and Screen doors)


1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (I like a ‘lil more kick)
1/4 teaspoon hot paprika
1 small onion, grated
4 cloves garlic, minced (I love garlic)
In a food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients. Process until smooth. Refrigerate for up to one week.
