Dip Essentials: Yummy Comeback Sauce

Andy Anderson !


This is a staple down south; especially in Mississippi. It is simple to put together, and works with seafood (I love it with shrimp), French fries, and I have even been known to use it as a dip with bacon. So yummy.

I have made a few adjustments to the recipe to suit my own personal style; however, as the name suggests: It tastes so good, you will “comeback” for more.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Dip Essentials: Yummy Comeback Sauce


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Chef’s Note: One of the things that I did to change this recipe is to reduce the cloyingly sweet taste of some versions. For example, I saw one recipe that used an entire cup of ketchup, along with a bunch of sugar and sweeteners. The finished photo looked like a gloppy mess. Comeback sauce is not a heavy sauce; it is light in nature. It does not cover the flavor of your food; it should heighten it.
  4. Add all the sauce ingredients into a non-reactive bowl, and whisk until thoroughly combined… Whisk, Whisk, Whisk. A chef’s work is never done.
  5. Chef’s Tip: If you are feeling a bit bone-idle today, you can always use a blender, or mini-prep to do the mixing.
  6. Add 1/2 of the lemon juice, whisk, and taste.
  7. Chef’s Note: Add the remainder of the lemon juice, if you feel it is needed.
  8. Cover, and place into the fridge overnight (assuming you can wait that long).
  9. Chef’s Tip: It really does taste better the next day.
  11. Serve as a dip with seafood, veggies, French fries, BACON, whatever you fancy. Enjoy.
  12. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
