To me, a sauce is life.
Apparently, I never grew up because having something to dip my food in is still something I love doing. I need extra sauce on my pasta. I need extra sauce to dip my pizza in, especially the crust. I need extra cheese sauce for my nachos. You get the point.
While growing up, my sauce dipping didn’t really expand beyond ketchup or mustard, I finally started experimenting with more sauces in college. Truth be told, until I was in my 20s, the thought of anything BBQ sauce seemed so gross to me. Who really knows why! Honestly, if I had to guess, it was probably one of those things that my mom didn’t like again. My friends couldn’t understand why I didn’t dip my nuggets in BBQ or honey or sweet and sour sauce. But nope, just ketchup please.
Around 3 years ago, I ran out of bottled BBQ sauce and freaked out since I needed it for something I was making for dinner. Someone suggested I make my own.
Duh! Make my own BBQ sauce recipe! I had no idea how simple it was to do so and yet to this day, I haven’t purchased another bottle of BBQ sauce at the store. Then recently, I had the brilliant idea to combine honey mustard and BBQ sauce together.
A Honey Mustard BBQ Sauce Recipe.
O-M-G…The result was phenomenal. Our toddler devoured the sandwiches that we put it on and Andrew, the world’s pickiest eater who won’t touch anything that mentions mustard, tasted and loved it too.
This sauce would be fantastic on grilled chicken, pulled pork, as a sauce in fish tacos, spread over a salad in the summer and so much more. The possibilities are truly endless.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup mustard
- 2 1/2 tbsp BBQ Sauce Here's our homemade recipe
- 2 tbsp mayo
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- Pinch Salt
- Pinch Pepper
- In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.
- Using a whisk, mix all together until well combined.
- Use immediately or store in the fridge in a sealed concealed for up to 2 weeks.
