Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
What Is Yum Yum Sauce?

One of the sauces that are typically offered is the Yum Yum Sauce (the white one). This is that sauce!

WHAT? No! Do not just mix mayo and ketchup together. Please, just follow my recipe below. You won’t be disappointed!
Can Yum Yum Sauce Be Made Ahead?
Yes! Of COURSE! It is BEST when made the day before! Letting those flavors mingle in the fridge makes it taste SO MUCH BETTER!
Can I Freeze Yum Yum Sauce?
No, Unfortunately you can NOT freeze Yum Yum Sauce. Most anything made with Mayonnaise will not freeze well. The mayo separates and is clunky and totally unappealing once it has been frozen.

Yum Yum Sauce
- 2 Cups of Mayonnaise
- ½ Cup Ketchup
- 3 Tbsp Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Tbsp Paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ Cup of water
- 1 tsp Sriracha or other hot sauce.
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl – may add extra sugar to taste.
- Allow to sit in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving so that flavors can meld.
- Be ABSOLUTELY SURE that you are using Garlic POWDER and Onion POWDER and not garlic salt and onion salt. If you use the salt version, this recipe will be WAY too salty.
- Some folks like to add some melted butter and more sriracha and cayenne. This gives more flavor without a ton more heat.
- The whisking sometimes seems to take forever. No worries, just keep at it and the lumps WILL eventually whisk out.
- I find that either Hellman's, Dukes or Blue Plate mayo work best for this recipe.
- It is fine to substitute a mayo substitute (like a vegan mayo) if you need to for dietary purposes.

A VERSE TO SHARE
Perhaps I’ve shared before that I do a lot of chanting of the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus tells us in his Sermon on the Mount that this is the way to pray and that God already knows of our wants and needs. So, I take Jesus at his word and simply say the Lord’s Prayer.
He DOES seem to know without me spelling it out.
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’
