Monday, Feb. 28, 2022
Are you a condiment connoisseur? A spread oracle? A sauce specialist? We are, too.
Welcome to #TeamSauce! Stick around for our smartest, sauciest tricks, which make our expertly frozen, delicious dishes somehow even better. With something for everyone — including nostalgia picks and vegetarian faves — we married some of our most popular dips, spreads and sauces to create an array of sauce-ibilities. Think of it as from-scratch cooking, with a bit of help from a friend.
Thai Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce + Original BBQ Sauce
Versatile, precooked Turkey Meatballs are accommodating to all kinds of sauces. To give ours a slight smoky kick, we mixed Thai Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce (a perfect balance of sweet and heat) with Original BBQ Sauce (a traditional blend of vine-ripened tomatoes and molasses) and tossed it over the heating meatballs in a high-sided skillet to create some serious depth of flavour. Serve yours over Long Grain White Rice, on their own or atop a pile of creamy Homestyle Mashed Potatoes.

Buttermilk Dill Dipping Sauce + Apple Butter BBQ Sauce
What do you get when you combine a dilly, creamy dip with a thick, sweet-smoky barbecue sauce? A swirl of tangy flavours that form an unlikely union of sweet apple, a hint of smoke, zippy dill and silky buttermilk. A mix of Buttermilk Dill Dipping Sauce and Apple Butter BBQ Sauce is an excellent landing strip for that spicy pile of crispy breaded Louisiana Style Chicken Wings that’s coming in hot. Garnish with sliced green onion and carrot ribbons.

Chipotle Mayo Spread + Cocktail Sauce
Seafood deserves a good sauce collaboration. By mixing not-too-spicy, horseradish-y Cocktail Sauce with the smooth fire of Chipotle Mayo Spread, you’re blending a spectrum of heat and transforming a thinner sauce into a thick, dunktastic option for crispy, crumb-coated Cod Nuggets and juicy, delicately spiced Herb and Garlic Shrimp Skewers. Garnish your treasures from the sea with lime wedges and jalapeño slices. To combat the piquant edge of each bite, sip a cold soda or an icy beer (a lager would do nicely).

Chipotle Mayo Spread + ketchup + ballpark mustard
Each of these three iconic condiments deserves a separate spotlight, so we’re generously drizzling them over our vegetarian version of corn dogs. How? By sticking a skewer into a herb-breaded, ooey-gooey Mozzarella Stick and laying savoury zigzags of Chipotle Mayo Spread, ketchup and ballpark mustard right down the middle. We recommend serving these bites with bowls of fries and individual cups of the spreads for a little extra dipping. Wash it all down with cold glasses of cola. Ah, that really hits the spot.
