Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 Cup Heintz Ketchup

  • 1/2 – 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar (depending on how sweet you prefer)

  • 2 TBLS Worcestershire

  • 1 Teaspoon Yellow Mustard

  • Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder (add some Cayenne if you prefer more heat)


  • Add 1 Cup of Ketchup to a microwavable 2-Cup bowl or Pyrex measuring cup. Stir in mustard along with seasonings to your taste. Add Brown Sugar and 2 Tbls. Worcestershire then stir.
  • Cover, not tight, (I like Glad Press & Seal…seal two sides to let breathe) and microwave 1 1/2 minutes. Stir then microwave for another minute.
  • The sauce thickens as it cools.
  • If you like a little more heat you may like to add Cayenne Pepper. If you like it sweet, add another 1/2 Cup of brown sugar.
  • This can be covered and stored in the refrigerator. Before serving heat in microwave for 1 minute and pour into a serving dish.
