🍴Serving Ideas

You’ve been missing out if you think Horsey Sauce is just for sandwiches! This sauce is like that one friend who gets along with everyone at the party. Here are some of my favorite ways to serve it up:

  • Dip for Veggies: Baby carrots and celery sticks have never been happier than swimming in a little pool of Horsey Sauce.
  • Roast Beef: Whether it’s leftover Sunday roast or deli slices, a smear of this sauce takes it to a new level.
  • Burger Booster: Swap out the ketchup and mustard for a generous spread of Horsey on your next burger.
  • Potato Perfection: Drizzle it over baked potatoes or mix it into your mashed potatoes for a tangy twist.
  • Seafood Companion: Yes, you heard that right! A dab on crab cakes or shrimp can be delicious.

There’s no wrong way to enjoy Horsey Sauce. Experiment, have fun, and find your family’s favorite combo.

💭How to Store

Let’s talk storage because we don’t want any of this deliciousness to go to waste. Find a clean jar or an airtight container – something you can trust to keep the flavors locked in and the fridge smells out.

Pour in your freshly mixed Horsey Sauce and store it in the fridge. It will keep its zesty flavor for about two weeks

A little tip from me to you: jot down the date you made it on a piece of masking tape and stick it on the container. Because, let’s be honest, we’ve all had that mystery container in the back of the fridge at some point!

⭐Tips

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions

  • If you’re sensitive to spice, start with a little less horseradish and taste as you go. You can always add more, but you can’t take it out!
  • Use the best quality real mayonnaise you can find. After all, it’s the base of your sauce, and a good mayo can make all the difference.
  • If your sauce is too thick for your liking, thin it out with a teaspoon of water or lemon juice until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Add a personal touch! A dash of black pepper, a squeeze of lemon juice, or a sprinkle of garlic powder can add an extra dimension to your sauce.

📝Reader Questions

Can I use fresh horseradish instead of creamed?

Yes, fresh horseradish works too. It will give you a sharper, more intense flavor. Just be prepared for a little extra kick!

Is Horsey Sauce gluten-free? 

Generally, yes, but always check the labels on your mayo and horseradish to be sure they’re certified gluten-free if that’s a concern for you.

Can I make Horsey Sauce ahead of time? 

Yes, making it a day in advance can give the flavors more time to mingle and get to know each other. Just store it in the fridge in an airtight container.

My horseradish sauce is too spicy! How can I fix it?

Add a bit more mayo and sugar to dilute the heat. Remember, it’s all about finding that perfect balance for you.
