Soweto Hot Sauce’s Spicy Smokey Baconnaise is a delicious, umami-loaded mayo-based sauce that adds a burst of flavour to burgers, sandwiches, sushi, fries, and more. With a combination of tangy lime juice, peppery kick, smokey garlic hot sauce, and the savoury essence of bacon dust (or biltong dust for a Kosher/Halal version), this dipping sauce will quickly become a household favourite. Let’s dive into the recipe!


– 1 cup mayonnaise
– 2 tablespoons lime juice
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 2 tablespoons smokey garlic hot sauce (adjust to taste)
– 2 tablespoons bacon dust (or biltong dust for Kosher/Halal version)
– Optional: salt to taste

Spicy Smokey Baconnaise Sauce INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Prepare the bacon dust:
– Cook bacon until crispy and allow it to cool.
– Place the cooked bacon in a blender or food processor and blend until it turns into fine crumbs. Set aside. (For a Kosher/Halal version, replace bacon with biltong and follow the same process.)

2. In a mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise and lime juice. Stir well until fully incorporated.

3. Add the black pepper to the mayo-lime juice mixture and mix thoroughly.

4. Gradually add the smokey garlic hot sauce to the mixture. Adjust the amount based on your desired level of spiciness.

5. Sprinkle in the bacon dust (or biltong dust) and stir until evenly distributed. This will infuse the sauce with a rich bacon flavour.

6. Taste the sauce and add salt if desired. Remember that the bacon (or biltong) may already provide some saltiness, so adjust accordingly.

7. Transfer the Spicy Smokey Baconnaise to a jar or airtight container for storage.

8. Refrigerate the sauce for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to meld together. This step will enhance the taste.

9. Serve the Spicy Smokey Baconnaise as a dip for fries, a spread for burgers and sandwiches, or a condiment for sushi rolls.


Enjoy your delicious Spicy Smokey Baconnaise Sauce! Its smokey, tangy, and slightly spicy profile will elevate any dish, adding a burst of flavour and satisfying the umami cravings.
