Just the idea of a sauce being "special" implies ambiguity and an air of secrecy.

This morning's all-new episode of The Kitchen exposed the mystery behind this seemingly elusive condiment and revealed more chef tricks for creating favorite restaurant-inspired dishes in your own kitchen. Read on below for the ins and outs of special sauce, and get the recipe to try it yourself.

Believe it or not, all it takes is a handful of ingredients to make this craveworthy Special Burger Sauce. Mayonnaise provides the creamy foundation, while yellow mustard, sweet relish and a dollop of ketchup provide the requisite tangy taste, and a duo of spices rounds out the flavor.
