My mother-in- law has been making this spicy mustard during the holidays for quite some time. She serves it every time she serves a baked ham, but this spicy mustard can be used with so much more. I always make it when I serve pigs in a blanket!

This mustard also makes a perfect hostess gift and a delicious gift for friends and families.

Key Ingredients

A complete list of ingredients and measurements can be found below. Just scroll to the bottom!

  • Dried Mustard – My mother-in- law insists that Colman’s Mustard is the best to use. It’s what I’ve used, but feel free to use whatever dry mustard you have on hand.
  • Eggs – Three whole eggs are needed. These act as a binder and helps thicken the mustard
  • Sugar – I use granulated sugar
  • White Vinegar – Gives mustard the tang or the sour that makes this taste so great. Use plain white distilled vinegar.

  • Use as a dipping sauce for chicken nuggets
  • Spread on a ham or turkey sandwich

    What a fun idea for a holiday hostess gift! I mean I do love cookies and all, but there is something unique about a homemade mustard sauce like this. I bet this is fantastic for leftover ham sandwiches, too!
