The simplest way to turn your dinner from good to great. Having this skill in your tool kit will ensure that you’re a mainstay at all future summer barbeques as holding the title of being the best at creating sauces for burgers is not a title to be taken lightly. Consider a creamy blue cheese sauce, melting into delectable steak. Or maybe a buttery aioli is more to your liking, as it compliments the succulent taste of a delicious crispy chicken burger. Whatever your preference, we can all agree that a mouth-watering and flavour-filled burger sauce can completely transform your meal.
Follow along as we teach you how to make incredible tasting sauce for every kind of burger. Whether you’re craving a vegan burger or a dedicated meat lover, there’s something for everyone in this blog.
The Best Burger Sauce For A Chicken Burger
Tip number one is to opt for the tried and tested sauces that you know will elevate your meal. Aioli is the perfect pairing for a chicken burger, it’s perfectly tangy, whilst enhancing the juicy flavour of the meat, and surprisingly easy to make. All you’ll need is:
- 2 pressed garlic cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
It’s a seriously simple ingredient list that will elevate your next burger. To create this creamy concoction, combine your garlic cloves and salt and mash until it turns into a paste. From there slowly combine your mayonnaise, and then lemon juice and olive oil. Finally, add salt and pepper to taste and you’ve got a buttery aioli in mere moments. The creaminess of the sauce pairs perfectly against the juiciness of the chicken and the slight acidity is a delicious contrast to the savoury flavours of the meat, whilst adding a rich flavour throughout. This is a failsafe for the best chicken burger sauce that is perfect for summer evenings.

Tip number two is to create a sauce that will elevate your burger. Instead of competing for the attention of your taste buds, create flavours that will harmonise with the sweet flavours of tomato, lettuce and of course, your meat of choice.
Sometimes nothing beats the original, and once you’ve tasted a great hamburger, you’ll be likely to agree.

So, for the final burger sauce on this list, we’ve saved the best for last.
Whilst there are plenty of burger sauces out there to compliment various meat, why should those going meat-free be left out? As discussed, the key ingredient to success when creating a burger sauce at home is to keep it simple because this leaves less room for error, and what could be more simple than three ingredients? For this recipe, you’ll need:
- 1 cup of vegan mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons of Sriracha (or more if you like your food a little more tangy)
- 2 teaspoons of mustard
All you need to do is combine your three ingredients and stir until you have your sauce. Of course, you can add a little more sriracha if you want to keep things spicy. This sauce will pack a flavour-filled punch to your veggie burger filling it with flavour and a little bit of a zingy edge. And, it is so easy to make with staple items you likely already have in your pantry!
