It’s lunchtime, and there are fresh, hot chicken nuggets and steaming baked potatoes on your tray.  

You spot a container of pink-red sauce-and you know it is perfect.

Your mind asks, “What IS that sauce labeled ‘SUSKY’?” 

From potatoes to chicken nuggets, Susky sauce can go on almost anything, but there’s skepticism regarding what goes in it.

Senior Christian Collins has been known to use the sauce and speculates its ingredients.

Senior Christian Collins enjoys his baked potatoes with the infamous sauce.

“I think it has ketchup, and mayo, and something else in it,” said Collins. “But I know it tastes good on potatoes.”

Some students say it can only go with certain dishes, but some argue otherwise.  

Senior Brett Flemmens has a different opinion on the condiment.

“It is without a doubt chicken nugget sauce,” said Flemmens. “I wouldn’t even put it on french fries; it just belongs on chicken.”

Whatever dish it goes on, Susky sauce adds some extra pizzazz.

Susky sauce was brought back about five years ago, after some hearsay about its history.  Kris Connely, a former cafeteria staff member, was the one who made up the recent recipe, but she has since retired.

Sherry Barrows, part of the cafeteria staff, hopes that students will use the sauce more since they make it so often.

All the condiment choices are lined up right beside the Susky sauce.

“I have to have it out there every day. I see students using water cups to hold their [susky] sauce,” said Barrows. “I think they started it to give kids extra variety, but it was such a big hit they just continued with it.”

Water cups serve as convenient vessels for dipping and pouring.

Recently though, the popularity of the signature sauce has gone down a bit due to graduating seniors.

The more recent classes view it as “the sauce that’s always there” and not anything new.

Getting to the real gossip: the recipe has been debated for years.

It is no secret, but it seems that not many people have asked for it.  

The recipe is:

-Two parts ranch dressing

-One part barbeque

-One part hot sauce

        – Measurements change depending on how much sauce you need.

 

That’s all folks – the pinkish red color is only achieved through these careful proportions.

So whether you enjoy it on potatoes, or just about anything, keep on Susky saucing.
