BK Royal Sauce Recipe

What Is Royal Sauce?

Royal Sauce is a sweet and savory thick white sauce. It is served on all the Royal Line chicken wraps and sandwiches found in Burger King. The original ingredients of BK Royal Sauce are not known.

But according to the taste, it possibly includes mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, and some other spices. Our BK Royal sauce is basically a mayonnaise that is a little spicy and tangy. It has garlicky and peppery undertones. 

Burger King Royal Sauce Ingredients

The signature ingredients in Burger King’s Royal Sauce are a secret. I used only fresh and simple ingredients to recreate BK Royal sauce. You’ll need ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, spices, and any kind of pickle available at home.

BK’s royal sauce goes well with all kinds of spicy and classic sandwiches and chicken wraps. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make BK Royal sauce at home:


Our first ingredient in this recipe is mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is a creamy, thick, and white sauce made with egg yolk, oil, and vinegar. It is commonly used in sandwiches and as a base for many other sauces.

1 cup mayo is needed in our recipe. You can use both store-bought or homemade mayonnaise.


Tomato ketchup is an item that is found in almost everyone’s refrigerator. Adding tomato ketchup with mayonnaise is itself a good combination for sandwiches and wraps. 1 ⁄ 2 cups of tomato ketchup is used in the recipe. 

Soy Sauce:

Soy sauce is a Chinese condiment made from fermented soya beans. It has a unique salty and tangy taste and is used in many sauce recipes. 2 tablespoons of soy sauce is used in the recipe. 


Garlic is a widely used herb for its pungent flavor and strong aroma. It is commonly used as a seasoning or condiment and goes well with many sauces. You’ll need 4 cloves of minced fresh garlic in the recipe. 

Cayenne Pepper:

Cayenne pepper is a relatively hot chili pepper used to add flavor to different dishes. Being bold red in color, not only adds spiciness but also improves the color of the dish. Add 3 freshly minced cayenne pepper to the BK Royal Sauce recipe. 

Yellow Mustard: 

Yellow mustard is a condiment made with mustard seeds, vinegar, and salt. With its light and tangy flavor, it is a popular condiment for sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers, salad dressings, etc. 2 tablespoons of prepared yellow mustard is used in our recipe. 

Black Pepper:

Black pepper has a complex flavor at the same time it adds heat and spiciness to the recipe. 1 ⁄ 2 teaspoon of finely ground black pepper is used in the recipe.


Paprika is basically dried and ground red pepper. It is used in sauces to make the sauce all red, hot, and spicy. ½ teaspoon of paprika powder would be enough to make our sauce spicy. 

Lemon Juice:

A squeeze of fresh lemon juice improves any dish, isn’t it? The nice aroma and tanginess balance all the other flavors. Use 1 teaspoon of lemon juice in the recipe.


Do you also use a pinch of salt in every recipe, like me? Even in your deserts! Our best BK Sauce includes 1 teaspoon of salt.


Sugar adds sweetness to the sauce and balances all other flavors. 1 tablespoon of sugar is the game-changer ingredient in this recipe.

This BK Sauce is really simple to make. Assemble all the ingredients and just whisk, whisk, whisk. There are strong chances that you already have all of the ingredients in your refrigerator and pantry. This Royal Sauce is thicker in consistency than BK’s other sauces.
