Savory Burger King Onion Ring Sauce

A slightly sweet and tangy sauce with a kick to make your mouth water. If you have tried Burger King’s onion rings, then you are sure to be a fan of their spicy onion ring dipping sauce.

This sauce has a slight kick coming from the horseradish with an accompanying heat from the cayenne, but it comes together for a slight tang and a sweet creamy finish. It’s a versatile dipping sauce, which particularly goes well with BBQ cookout staples.

Tip: For best results, cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving alongside home-made onion rings. Goes along great as a spread for burgers and sandwiches, or sweet potato fries.
