Ketchup: Perhaps the world's most useless condiment

Post by Jocose » Sat Dec 03, 2011 4:26 pm

What good is ketchup, other than a possible condiment for french fries and perhaps used on a meatloaf sandwich?

Ketchup certainly should never be used on a hot dog or a burger either.

French fries and meatloaf sandwich's are just as good without ketchup, so, other than these 2 items, I see no practical or desirable use for ketchup.

Pssh. Miracle Whip is the most useless condiment followed closely by mustard relish.

I like ketchup on fries, meatloaf, hashbrowns, and eggs. When I was a child, I ate it on macaroni and cheese.

In Belgium, they expect that you want to dip your fries into mayonnaise.

When visiting with my son during Thanksgiving he took us to a breakfast place called "Wildberry's." It was pretty high falootin. The thing that really threw me was when they brought out the little plate with organic maple syrup and real butter in little cups they also brought out four little ramekins of ketchup.

Is that common? I've never been any place where they served it like that with breakfast. What was it for?

I asked for the Tabasco to go on my eggs.

I like Miracle Whip on green peas, although Best Foods mayo is better..

I love ketchup. On eggs, burgers, dogs, in baked beans with brown sugar, or mixed with horseradish and mayo for fry sauce with a kick.

cat-soup is only good on fries. and not all the time. I like mayo for fries better. brown gravy is best on fries.

ketchup should never be on burgers or eggs or anything other than fries.

Ketchup is a most-convenient ingredient in home-made barbecue sauces.

That alone makes it a valuable condiment.
