Time to get SAUCY - condiment talk


(Troy) #1

At In N Out on Monday
Ordered my usual
Double - Double Protein Style-mustard and pickles only

Another customer ordered extra spread after me
Yum…so good
That was my favorite sauce!!
Aka…thousand island I mean🤣

Yes I know
I’ll make up a Keto version soon

However, Hum🤔

So, what “ was “ your favorite fast food sauce ?

Perhaps share your “ Keto mock sauce “ version recipe?

To travel down —— and get jarred up by some drive thru late night memories
Here’s a nice list below


Thanks for playing

BIg Mac sauce.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons French dressing
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced white onion
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Haven’t tried it but could sub out the sugar for stevia. The french dressing and sweet relish are a little carby but all that mayo will water down the carb count. I’m estimating 1-2 carbs per tablespoon after it’s all put together.

Thousand island.

Another member posted an option for making their Keto version of sweet relish
That can be swapped as well for the above

For salads I actually prefer blue cheese, but blue cheese doesn’t work for me on burgers. I’ve tried it.

(Eric) #6

Blue cheese on any beef is great.

(Carl Keller) #7

It’s close but a little off. But you just reminded me of Reubens. It’s corned beef with swiss and sauerkraut and thousand island on jewish rye bread… now to just find a carb free jewish rye recipe…

Thanks I’m off to search for it now. :slight_smile:

Simple looks like
Just Stevia added
“Trailer Pickles “ was the name or recipe

And blue cheese stuffed Burgers!

(Regina) #10

Is this your attempt at pure torture??

(Regina) #11

Wow, I’m totally making myself unpopular! :rofl:

(Carl Keller) #12

Not at all. I’m focused on the keto-friendly parts of that sandwich. I just need something to hold it together. I have no interest in any bread that’s processed in whole or in part. :wink:

(Regina) #13

I refuse to attempt to bake keto treats. Just meat, cheese and veggies. Nine months later - I am still tempted. No, I need to quash all that fake keto bakery stuff .

(Carl Keller) #14

I don’t do treats either… nothing remotely close to simulate the act of eating anything sweet and carby. I fear that I won’t be able to stop at “just one”, like it used to happen before keto.

I have done some mug buns with almond flour, egg, butter, baking powder and salt and I find it great for sopping up runny eggs, steak grease and holding a burger… but I don’t have any binge issues with them. So I am not against trying out a keto bread as long it doesn’t have sugar. I know it will be for serving a purpose, not a desire. :slight_smile:


That’s my approach as well. I don’t try to make keto-versions of things, as most often I’m left unsatisfied. The only exceptions seem to be cauliflower mash/rice and lettuce wraps for hamburgers. When I remember it, I’ll also do cheese tortillas for tacos, but I usually forget and just do a salad or a lettuce wrap (messy though).

Not cheap, but gets the job done!..:smile:

My go to sweet relish: Mt. Olive “No sugar added” Sweet Relish. Only 1 g carb per table spoon. I use it for making T-Island Dressing and tarter sauce. They also make “no sugar added” sweet pickles.

Sure beats re-inventing the wheel.

BTW, a reuben w/o the bread is friggin awesome!!!

(Stylee) #18

Add stevia to a jar of dill pickle chips and let it go for a couple of days to soak in.


I missed my reubens!!. I make them as a casserole now. Cook the beef in a slow cooker, cut, put into casserole dish, top with sauerkraut and swiss cheese, serve with keto 1000 island. I guess if you wanted to get “fancy” you could make a creamy swiss (ala mornay) sauce and mix it in. Im going to try mixing in caraway seeds the next time I make it, in rememberance of rye.

Oh my, I’m going to try this. Yummy.
