Ketchup was a firm favourite with my family for smothering burgers with. That was until I made this particular sauce which blew the ketchup out of the window!
This is perfect for those times you fancy something different, but don't have fancy things in the cupboard that other recipes call for. I tried having a look around for a recipe, but couldn't find one that I had everything in for, so I raided the cupboards and made my own :)
Also works great as a dip!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingrdients
1. 1 tbsp of ketchup
2. 2 tbsp of mayonnaise (would be even better with home made mayo!)
3. 1/4 tsp of garlic
4. 1/8 tsp of paprika
5. sugar to taste (not pictured)
Step 2: Mix Mix Mix
add the ketchup, mayo, garlic and paprika into a bowl and give them a good mix.
You're going to want to make sure you've mixed them as well as you can; you don't want to find any lumps of the paprika powder on your burger.
Once you've mixed it all up properly, give it a taste. It may taste quite tangy - this is where the sugar comes in (unless you like the tanginess of course!)
Add the sugar a sprinkle at a time and give it another good mix. Keep doing this slowly until you have the taste you desire. There's no set amount, this bit's all down to personal taste :)
Step 3: And Finally...
Once you've got the taste perfect, it's time for the good part.
Pile lettuce, your burger, a slice of tomato and any other toppings you prefer on your bun and smother it all with sauce; the more the better!
As a side note, I only made this amount as it was for just three of us, but as the quantities are pretty simple, you should have no problem making more or less. Would be great for any BBQs you have coming up this Summer!
