Personalize Backyard Grilling With DIY Condiments

MISSION, KS--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2013) - (Family Features) Celebrate the upcoming summer holidays by declaring your independence from traditional burger, hot dog and sausage toppers. Simple Do-It-Yourself condiments take minutes to make and can be tailored to create custom flavors that will impress family and friends. From Worcestershire pub mustard to Cajun spiced ketchup, there are many ways to make traditional toppings unique and memorable.

"It's as easy as adding herbs and spices to store-bought mayonnaise to create a lemony herb mayo upgrading a grilled chicken sandwich," said Chef Kevan Vetter of McCormick. "Or, combine Dijon mustard with Grill Mates Worcestershire Pub Burger Seasoning for a bold spread that's perfect on grilled hot dogs, bratwurst or other sausages."
