The Sauce That Keeps ‘Em Coming Back 

Recently, my daughter, Deidra, concocted this dip in my kitchen. My husband and I had just eaten at one of those chain steakhouse restaurants the day before and enjoyed their dipping sauce with some fried onion petals. Her’s tasted amazingly like theirs. She said it’s like a Comeback Sauce.

I wasn’t aware of such a thing, then I found out this cute and catchy name of a sauce is from a Greek restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi. They named it cleverly because it keeps ’em coming back for more.

There seem to be many copycat recipes circulating around for the Comeback Sauce. One thing I noticed is that the Mississippi version is sweet – ours is not.

After Deidra made another batch and took note of the ingredient amounts, I quickly jotted them down to share with you all. And here it is!

Four Ingredients With Lots Of Louisiana Flavor

Our Comeback Sauce is full of the tastes of a few Louisiana products, Creole Mustard and Louisiana Gold Horseradish Pepper Sauce. They are mixed in with mayonnaise and red cayenne pepper. Simple, huh? It has a kick that’s similar to my Remoulade Sauce recipe, but not quite the same.

I like both sauces, but sometimes I prefer a simpler, lighter dip or spread with my food and this Louisiana Comeback Sauce is perfect!

If you haven’t tasted Louisiana Gold Horseradish Pepper Sauce, do yourself a favor and get a bottle as soon as possible. Life is tastier with this not-so-ordinary hot sauce! The horseradish makes a difference in everything it touches.

And this Creole Mustard is a must! Your sandwiches will never be the same.

Now, I am aware that you may not have these 2 products in your kitchen, nor are they readily available in the nearest grocery store. You can order them from this site by clicking the highlighted products in this post. Or, you can use these few substitutions noted below.

Note: If you don’t have any Louisiana Gold on hand, you can substitute the ingredient in the recipe with 1 tablespoon hot sauce, 1 tablespoon ketchup, and 1 teaspoon of prepared horseradish. For the Creole mustard, use 1 tablespoon of spicy brown mustard instead.

I have prepared both versions, and the difference between the two is that the Louisiana Gold and Creole mustard version has a deeper, slightly richer taste. Both are very tasty and worth dippin’, so in my kitchen, I choose not to substitute unless I have to!

Let your imagination run wild! Give it a try as a dip with fried foods or drizzle some onto a fish taco topped with fresh Southern Louisiana Coleslaw. Yum, it’s a medley of alluring, mouthwatering flavors I highly recommend!
