America's Favorite Homemade Sauces... with a Twist

America's Favorite Homemade Sauces... with a Twist
Maryse Chevriere

Where would our hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and barbecue be without the greats? We're talking about sauce here, folks — from the basics like ketchup, mustard, and barbecue sauce to some of the things that might not immediately come to mind, say, tartar sauce, but would definitely be missed the next time a shrimp cocktail is passed around. Where would our great nation be without them? We'd be munching on some pretty dry critters, that's where we'd be, and that, my friends, would be a mighty sad situation.

So once again, The Daily Meal comes to the rescue. Sure, the obvious thing to do would be just to round up homemade versions of every single sauce to ever grace a ballpark, cocktail table, and peanut-shells-on-the-floor joint out there and call it a day, but that would be too easy. Because sometimes, it's nice to have something a little different — not so different that the very identity of the thing is lost, but just different enough to wake things up a bit. So we've rounded up some new twists on old favorites, as well as some recipes that make good use of these hallmarks of American cuisine, but with a little extra oomph.
