Ketchup Leather Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

Does ketchup make your burger too soggy? Some chefs think so and are serving up a clever solution: ketchup leather! If you’re ready to try the trend at home, it doesn’t require many ingredients and your oven does most of the work. Ketchup is the main squeeze but a squirt of sriracha brings some heat, and lime rounds out the flavors with a splash of acidity. It just might be the spicy addition your burger nights are missing!

Ketchup Leather

Yield: 6 squares
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours and 10 minutes


Coconut cooking spray
¾ cup Thrive Market Organic Ketchup
2 tablespoons sriracha
Juice of half a lime


Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and line a 9- x 13-inch sheet tray with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang on each side. Coat lightly with cooking spray.

Mix ketchup, sriracha, and lime juice in a bowl. Using an offset spatula, evenly spread on sheet tray in a thin layer. Bake for 3 hours, until slightly tacky. Let leather cool completely before peeling off paper. (If bottom seems wet, flip over and return to oven for another 20 minutes.) Cut into 4-inch squares. If not using immediately, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
