I was looking for something a little different to dip my french fries beside the usual side of ketchup so decided to give this Horseradish French Fry Dipping Sauce from Celebrity Chef Rachael Ray a try.
What caught my attention was the use of applesauce as one of the ingredients. I don't think I have ever used applesauce to make a dipping sauce before. Oh yeah, and the use of breadcrumbs. Weird uh?
💭 Ingredient Substitution
If you don't have any prepared horseradish you can use some horseradish sauce/cream. Since it is not as potent as prepared horseradish you might need to add a little more to get that kick we are all looking for.
Additionally, if you don't have any fresh chives you can substitute for some dried chives or some onion powder.
If you enjoy the recipes from this Celebrity Chef, I strongly recommend you buy one of their cookbooks. I'm pretty sure you can easily find them on Amazon.
If you own an Air Fryer (and yes you should by now), I think the easiest way to cook frozen french fries is by following my Air Fryer French Fries recipe.
