So, my roommate Travis and I were musing on the fact that Cane’s Sauce tastes good with everything. This is true, it really does. I had a thought, that we might be able to buy it in bottles from Cane’s. Turns out, you can’t! However, you CAN make it at home. It isn’t perfect, but it tastes great. There are several recipes floating around out there, and I tried one of them, but it was missing something… And I think I found out what it is! Here is what you need to make some sauce (double the recipe if you need a lot).
1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup ketchup
1⁄2 tablespoon garlic powder or salt
1⁄2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Generous amount of black pepper (cover surface two or three times and mix in)
TONY CACHERE’S SEASONING! (stir in to taste)
You may be inclined to use lots of mayo, but don’t. It comes through more than you’d think, so get it either exact or use slightly less. The last ingredients may need to be bumped up a bit to add some spice and cover the taste of the mayo, so add a bit more of each until it tastes right. Finally, the Tony’s needs to be added last. You aren’t trying to make the sauce SPICY, mind you. This ingredient just helps the sauce hit the right part of your pallet. Add some sprinkles in and taste a few times until it is right. Put it in your fridge for awhile and let it settle, and it will taste great! Enjoy.
Stay hungry my friends.
