French Fry Dip is the perfect creamy dip for all your french fry cravings. With mayo and relish, it also makes a great burger spread.
Have you ever been to the Pacific Northwest? If you have, or if you live there like me then you are familiar with Burgerville. If you are not familiar with Burgerville and live in the Pacific Northwest, or plan to visit, do yourself a favor: GO.
I guess I shouldn’t say Pacific Northwest because Burgerville is really only in Southwestern Washington and Northwest Oregon. As in, it’s not in Seattle.
As in there isn’t one within 80 miles of me.
It’s tragic really. I grew up in Southwestern Washington and I loved Burgerville. Whenever we got fast food, I’d prefer Burgerville hands down over all of the other burger places.
And the reason why, besides the unbelievable milkshakes, the walla walla onion rings in the summer and the fact that they use Tillamook cheese on their burgers, is the spread that they put on their burgers.
I would always order a Colossal Cheeseburger Basket with fries, a coke and extra spread for dipping my fries.
Friends, every bite was heaven.
And every time I go home I have to stop there at least once. But let me tell you it’s not enough and I got to thinking maybe, just maybe in between visits I could make the spread at home.
After looking at the ingredients list, I decided to give it a go. It took me a couple of tries to get it right but I think I’ve got something that totally satisfies my craving when I can’t get back home. And today I’m sharing it with you.
Its gotta be creamy so that means its gotta have mayo. A good french fry dip and burger spread is also slightly sweet. This dip gets a little bit of sweetness from sweet pickle relish and a pinch of sugar.
For a bit of saltiness, chopped pickles or dill pickle relish is also a good addition.
Finally, the mustard. There are so many different kinds of mustard out there. So many dijon and stone ground versions out there but for fry dip, you don’t need anything fancy. Instead, you’re going to want good ol’ fashioned yellow mustard. It gives the subtle vinegar taste you want and the yellow color.
So the next time that you make yourself a batch of french fries. Or maybe a Fried Pickle Burger, make sure that you’ve got this french fry dip to serve along side. You’re going to love it!
