Guy Fieri’s Donkey Sauce

Get your culinary passports ready because today we are going to Flavor Town. Guy Fieri likes to serve his burgers and sandwiches covered in a mysterious sauce called “Donkey Sauce” that packs a strong garlic punch. However, during an appearance on the Rachael Ray show, he admitted that Donkey Sauce is just a simple garlic aioli, but calling something an “aioli” doesn’t exactly jive with his brand. The real trick to getting a delicious Donkey Sauce is to use freshly roasted garlic in the recipe, but we won’t blame you if you use two teaspoons of garlic powder instead.


  • ¼ cup minced roasted garlic
    • 4 bulbs garlic
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (about 4 dashes)
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


If making your own roasted garlic:

  1. Remove the thin papery outermost layers from the garlic. Cut the head off of the bulb of garlic to expose the individual cloves.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the cloves and season with salt and pepper
  3. Wrap tightly in foil and place in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 45 minutes
  4. Once done, remove garlic from foil and allow cool.
  5. Squeeze roasted garlic from the bulb and smash into a paste
