"Donkey Sauce" for burgers

[ Edited ]

I saved this recipe from Guy Fieri years ago and just came across it again in my recipe binder.  Great for July 4 cookouts. 

 

(I have no explanation for the name and don't even want to think about it!)

 

What's your favorite burger topper?

1/2 tsp sweet pickle relish

1/2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp white vinegar

1/4 tsp pepper

BOTH strike me as being super yummy and just personally the name makes a total "no-matter".

SO THRILLED to be able to have a cook out after our LOCAL PARADE I might whip some of each up to serve it there.

 

THEN, I might privately add a teaspoon or so of horseradish to the "Donkey Sauce" to see if I could get it to kick a little higher!!!

Lots of garlic in that recipe. I'm inclined to think @deepwaterdotter 's version fits my Midwestern tastes. Will try it the next time we grill burgers.

If you are a little put off  by the amount of garlic in the recipe, roasted garlic doesn't have the stronger and more pungent taste of garlic used in its raw state.
