Subway Sauces

DH LOVES LOVE LOVES sauces. He's always experimenting and coming up with new concoctions. That's why our fridge is mostly condiments:)
On Sunday night he was craving a Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwich from Subway, and since it was Sunday we of course weren't going to go get one, so we started researching recipes. By the time I found some good recipes, he had munched on something and wasn't hungry anymore, but I got really excited about our two favorite sauces, the sweet onion sauce and the southwest chipotle. (Try the sweet onion chicken teriyaki with just a small strip of the chipotle sauce, and lots of sweet onion sauce. It's divine!) I was only missing a couple ingredients so I got them today and whipped up these sauces tonight. They were both super duper easy but the sweet onion sauce has a rather strange ingredient that I wouldn't think most people have laying around. This buttermilk powder can be found on the baking isle, but not knowing what it looked like, I honestly wouldn't have found it. Luckily my friend spotted it.

Sweet Onion Sauce

  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons minced white onion
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons white distilled vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon buttermilk baking mix
  • 1/2teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon poppy seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch cracked black pepper
  • pinch garlic powder

  • Combine all ingredients. Bring to boil. Whisk well. Cool and store in refrigerator.

    I used 1 Tbsp. of dried minced onion instead but I'm anxious to try it with the fresh onion.

    Southwest Chipotle Sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce pureed chipotle chile in adobo
  • 1 tsp. fresh garlic, minced
  • salt, to taste

  • Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.

    I was trying to find some fancy glass bottles but settled on these for now. But really these will work better than glass since they can be squeezed.

    So tomorrow night's dinner is homemade Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches!!! We're excited. DH just needs to find Subways Italian Herb and Cheese bread recipe.
