In our house, condiments are the key to a good meal. For just about everyone in our family, however, there’s one clear forerunner, despite the fact that we’ll all eat nearly any sauce or dip presented to us. Above all, nothing beats mustard! There’s just something so delicious about the tangy flavour that it adds to every dish we put it on that keeps us coming back from more. We’ll happily east any kind of mustard we come across, too, whether it’s a standard store bought yellow or a gourmet flavoured dijon handmade on site. As a crafty, DIY loving family, however, we’re sure it’ll come as no surprise to you to learn that we really enjoy learning how to make our favourite things ourselves, almost as much as we enjoy those things in the first place. Thinking about that lately is how we recently found ourselves sitting down at the computer and scouring the Internet to try and find as many recipes for mustard and mustard based dishes as we can possibly get our hands on!
Just in case your family love and adores mustard just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best and most unique mustard based recipes that we’ve come across in our search so far and either tried immediately or bookmarked to try as soon as we have the opportunity.
