Comeback Sauce is an amazing Southern classic dipping sauce. It’s a delicious sauce with chicken, wings, salads, fries and more! I have no idea who created it, but I sure wish I could hug their neck in gratitude.

A long standing southern classic, Comeback Sauce comes from the Mississippi region of the south – or so I understand – and I couldn’t be happier that friends of ours from that area while growing up introduced it to my family.

Full of delicious flavor, Comeback Sauce is easily one of my favorite go-to items in my refrigerator for all sorts of things. Of course it works perfectly as a dip for chicken fingers, chicken wings, chicken legs, as a salad dressing, and yep – even on eggs. (It’s really delicious on eggs!)

    1. It is a spicy tomato ketchup. Comes in small 12 oz size bottles. Could sub ketchup and sirachi hot sauce.

  1. We love this sauce! It’s so delicious and versatile. I add chipotle sauce to your recipe to give it a little extra kick. Thanks so much for all your great recipes.

  2. Homemade Comeback Sauce and homemade Chili Sauce are always in my  refrigerator. I make them in double batches when I make them because I’ve always treated them like they keep refrigerated as long as the shortest time of any of the ingredients that I use to make them. I have never had an issue with this logic, and have been doing it for over thirty years.

    The only difference in my regular Comeback recipe is an added 1 tsp of prepared horse radish. 

    Here’s another variation that I sometimes use, although the one here at addapinch is the one I always “Comeback” to.

    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    ½ tsp ground black pepper
    ½ tsp Louisiana sauce
    ¼ cup oil
    juice of one lemon 

    Variation II:
    ⅔ cup chile sauce
    ½ cup vegetable oil
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    1 tsp Worcestershire 
    2 dashes Louisiana sauce
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 Tbsp fine grated onion
    3 cloves minced garlic
    1 cup mayonnaise
    ¼ cup ketchup
    1 tsp dry mustard
    ¼ tsp paprika
    ¼ tsp salt
    1 tsp celery seed
    ¾ tsp curry powder
    3 tsp horseradish
