Recipe Roundup- Make it With Mustard- 30 Magnificent Recipes

Do you love mustard as much as I do? Do you cook with it? If you said yes, then, today is your lucky day. I have compiled 30 of my favorite easy recipes featuring our three award-winning mustards (Cherchies® Champagne Mustard (our Flagship product), Cherchies® Cranberry Mustard, and Cherchies® Hot Banana Pepper Mustard).

Who says mustard is only for hot dogs, burgers, and pretzels? Not us! Beyond the beloved wieners and sandwiches, do you know that many chefs and home cooks cleverly add some “mustard zing” to their culinary dishes? I recently spoke with one of our local chef friends and he shared some deliciously creative uses you may not have thought of in your cooking:

  • Use mustard as a thickener for stews.

  • Add mustard as an emulsifier for vinaigrette recipes.

  • Use as a glaze or rub for meats.

  • Enhance your marinades with mustard.

  • Use as a dip for pretzels, chicken tenders, cheese, and so much more!

Mustard’s versatility is an understatement, so if you love mustard like I do and want to add extra zing to your favorite dishes, then grab a jar, make it with mustard, and make something amazing! Imagine the possibilities! Enjoy these fabulous recipes!
