Brush meat with additional Heinz HP Sauce during the last few minutes of cooking for an added boost of flavour. Add flavour to veggies by brushing them with Heinz HP Sauce while on the grill. Chopped assorted vegetables can also be tossed with Heinz HP Sauce, wrapped in foil, and placed on the grill while the steak is cooking. Mmmm so good! Add a splash of Heinz HP Sauce blended into melted marmalade makes a tasty glaze for grilled chicken or pork.

Perfect for Chicken

Try mixing equal parts Heinz HP Chicken & Rib with ketchup – great dipping sauce for chicken fingers! Mix Heinz HP Sauce with sour cream and use as a cool dip for chicken nuggets. Use Heinz HP Sauce as a baste for regular or breaded chicken wings.

Something a Little Different

Mix Heinz HP Sauce with horseradish and place in a martini glass rimmed with jumbo cocktail shrimp for a delicious appetizer. Combine Heinz HP Sauce, olive oil, red wine vinegar and garlic for a new twist on salad dressing.

Heinz HP to the Rescue

Use Heinz HP Sauce to thicken sauces or gravies without separation or requiring reduction time. Add Heinz HP Sauce to ground meat dishes such as shepherd’s pie, meatloaf and burgers. They won’t be the same without it!
