Do you ever find yourself staring at the nearly empty jars of mayonnaise or mustard in your fridge, wondering what to do with the last few drops? Don't toss them out just yet! With a little creativity and a touch of culinary magic, you can transform those dregs into delicious sauces that will have your taste buds dancing. Get ready to get saucy with these three recipes that make the most of every last drop of your favorite condiments.

1. Special-er Sauce

When your mayonnaise jar is running on fumes, it's time to whip up everyone's favorite burger topper. Just add some chopped capers, Worcestershire, ketchup, pickle relish, mustard powder, and a pinch of cayenne into your almost-empty jar of mayo. Mix it all up and toss it on two all-beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

2. Fancy Sauce

Don't let that last bit of mustard go to waste! Use it to add a bit of class to your next steak salad. Mix together the remaining mustard with a splash of cream, a spoonful of mayonnaise, a pinch of fresh parsley, and some salt. Mix it all together and serve over a steak, salad, or better yet, a steak salad!

3. Top Secret Sauce

Ok, let's keep this one on the hush hush. By far the easiest and tastiest dip you'll ever have. With your mayonnaise jar on its last legs, just add a spoonful of your favorite chili crisp. For some extra spice, add in a bit of the chili oil (without crisp). Mix it up and toss it on a burger. Or, (and this is my favorite) use it to dip your fries and pizza crust in!

So, the next time you find yourself scraping the bottom of a condiment jar, don't despair. Get creative, get saucy, and turn those dregs into deliciousness that will leave you licking your lips and wondering why you didn't think of it sooner. After all, as they say, waste not, want not (and eat more!).
