Shut Yo Mouth Sauce


A zesty dipping sauce somewhere between Freddy’s Fry Sauce and Chick-Fil-A Sauce made with a splash of pickle juice, that’s perfect for everything from French fries to chicken tenders to burgers to fried shrimp!

I woke up today and had a massive craving for French fries! Well, actually, I had a craving for fry sauce. Hello, peri-menopause, you wretch! So happy to have survived puberty and pregnancies to deal with mood swings, acne, cravings and bouts of random nausea all over again.

Hey, at least the hot flashes are new! It’s all awesome. It’s super awesome.

ANYway… I make this sauce, somewhat inspired by the fry sauce at Freddy’s (Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – my hands-down favorite burger chain) that I love to eat with, well, french fries, of course, but all sorts of other things too!

We use this sauce as a condiment and pull it out of the fridge for everything from burgers to fish sticks to vegetables to chicken fingers. Try Shut Yo' Mouth Sauce with:

  • Burgers and chicken sandwiches
  • Grilled chicken and fish
  • Dipping sauce for veggie platters
  • French fries and tater tots
  • Chicken nuggets and chicken fingers
  • Fried fish and shrimp
  • Po’ Boys
  • Potato wedges and roasted potatoes
  • Fish sticks and salmon patties
  • Roasted brussels sprouts, broccoli and asparagus

When I first concocted this sauce I was looking for something that fell between Chick-Fil-A Sauce and Freddy’s Fry Sauce, that leaned more toward the sauce at Freddy’s.

Since Chick-Fil-A sauce is primarily mayo and barbeque sauce, I knew to use those. But I didn’t want it to be too sweet so I experimented from there and arrived at this recipe.

I never knew if it was 'Chick-Fil-A brain' or if this is an actual ingredient in Freddy’s Fry Sauce but for some reason, I just knew the sauce needed dill pickle juice. In the back of my mind I figured I’d probably want to have it with fish sticks too so the dill pickle juice brought in a little tartar sauce vibe.

Update: I’ve just been browsing online and see most copycat recipes for Freddy’s Fry Sauce have pickle juice. I legit did not know that when I created this recipe! If I ever become a superhero, maybe one of my powers will be flavor profiling.

And finally, I wanted spices, not just a bowl of mixed-up condiments so I added a hefty amount of those too. Sometimes I add dried thyme or cayenne pepper but for the most part I stick with the basics: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper.

Since I was craving the sauce, I decided to make Crispy Roasted Potato Wedges (recipe coming soon!) to dip in the sauce! And since I still wasn’t over it, I pulled it out again at supper to dip my asparagus in!

OH! And why is it called SHUT YO MOUTH SAUCE?? Well, I didn’t know what else to call it, there are a gozillion recipes out there simply called Fry Sauce and the whole ‘shut your mouth’ thing has been a joke around here for a while.

Very often when Husband, the kids or I meet people and try to explain what I do for a living and the name of the blog comes up (south your mouth) people will part, saying something like, “And I sure will check that website out… what’s it called again? Shut Your Mouth?”

So when something is particularly delicious around here, the standing joke is to say SHUT YO MOUTH, that’s good! So, that’s what I’m calling the sauce because it’s a family favorite and has become somewhat of a staple.
