Burger and Meatball Sauce

A big leap above the standard ketchup, this is one of my favorite burger sauces, but it's a great meatball sauce too.

Though somewhat of a riff on the vintage grape jelly and chili sauce meatballs we all know and love, I patterned this version after a burger sauce once used by an old favorite and sadly now gone, little bitty, local burger joint in Biloxi.

There was nothing particularly unusual about their flame-cooked burgers really, but it was the sauce that really made them ultra delicious to me. For many years I had fond memories of it, and thought I'd give a hand at trying to make one somewhat like it. This recipe was the result. It makes about 4 cups, perfect for loads of burgers, or several pounds of meatballs, though it can certainly be reduced.

Well, here it is September, and the last weekend before fall, and as happens every, single, year with the blogging community, you're probably seeing all sorts of apple and pumpkin posts as those of us who write about and share recipes on this internet world get anxious to switch over to the aromas of fall.

Unfortunately for many of us here in the South, most especially the Deep South, it doesn't matter what the calendar says, the weather betrays it! Although we got a slight break this weekend, it's still hotter than hot in my part of the world and I'm not ready for that pumpkin spice latte y'all. So... I'll still be plugging along with those cooling summer foods, like cucumber salads, for a bit yet.

This is a main dish take on those well loved chicken fajitas, putting that bold fajita flavor on those ever popular, full-sized boneless, skinless chicken breast and using the classic peppers and onions to flavor a side dish of rice. Just something with familiar flavors. but a little different!
