Easy Honey Mustard
To qualify as 'easy' honey mustard, the recipe must be quick and easy to prepare and use limited ingredients, yet still taste great. A good honey mustard is wonderfully creamy, still tastes like mustard, and has a noticeable sweetness from honey. My recipe focuses on balancing those flavors in fairly easy to replicate ratios.
Honey Mustard Ingredients
Together Dijon and yellow mustard form the backbone of this sauce, providing the trademark mustard flavor. Mayo is blended in to give the sauce it's distinctive creaminess, and finally honey is added for sweetness.
What changes can I make to this recipe?
You can change everything! Want more mustard flavor? Add a bigger ratio of mustard, or cut back on the mayo. Want it to be sweeter? Add more honey.
