What Do You Need To Make Outback Fried Mushroom Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

Sour Cream

Gives your dipping sauce the perfect texture and a rich, creamy flavor.

Mayonnaise 

I recommend using homemade mayonnaise for a richer, creamier flavor, but you can use your favorite store-bought brand.

However, I don’t recommend Miracle Whip for this recipe as it significantly changes the taste of the dipping sauce.

Fresh Lemon Juice

If at all possible, use fresh lemons.

However, you can use one tablespoon of bottled lemon juice if you don’t have access to fresh lemons.

Fresh Garlic

Intensifies the flavor. You can substitute garlic powder.

However, make sure you don’t use garlic salt, which will overpower your sauce.

Dijon Mustard 

The mustard gives your dipping sauce some tang.

Feel free to substitute other mustards to change the flavor if you desire.

Fresh Thyme

Adds a deeper flavor to the dipping sauce.

Feel free to substitute other fresh herbs, like oregano or rosemary.

Fresh Parsley

Adds more herb flavor and gives the sauce a spot of color.

Cayenne Pepper

Adds a little bit of heat. For a spicier dipping sauce, add an extra pinch.

Equipment

  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Non-reactive mixing bowl
  • Spoon or spatula
