I like mustard on my hot dog, but hate bright yellow French's and the horseradish in the Grey Poupon Dijon is overwhelming. Any recommendations for a mustard that has good flavor but does not overpower the main event?
do you want to try another yellow mustard that you might like better? or a spicy deli mustard? for the record, Dijon doesn't belong on a hot dog :)
some good ones:
- yellow: Annie's Organic (my favorite), Gulden's, Beaver, Plochman's
- spicy deli/brown: Ba-Tampte (my favorite), Beaver, Kosciusko
I'm actually a mustard fiend, and adore mustard. Different foods and uses require different mustards.
For regular yellow mustard, I find that it's hard to be Annie's Natural Yellow (although French's and Gulden's will do in a pinch).
For honey mustard I like Billy Bee's
For a deli type mustard, the best in my book is Boar's Head
For Dijon you have to try Maille ... it's so thick and grainy you have to chew it before swallowing; otherwise you might choke.
And if you want a hot mustard, try Beer Mustard or Minorcan Mustard, both are very good.
I like Hickory Farms sweet hot mustard, mixed with mayo. It goes very well on ham and on corned beef sandwiches.
I'm a Plochman's girl.
But like you, my boyfriend likes neither the bright yellow stuff nor Grey's, so you might like his go-to's. He uses Koop's Deli mustard, and Heinz Spicy Brown. He seems to use them interchangeably, though he likes to have one of each in the fridge at all times. Heinz also makes a plain yellow that is pretty good, but is difficult (in our area) to find.
Yellow on hot dogs, French's is fine
For all around I like Kosciusko, a mild brown mustard with a slight sweetness.
I also used to buy the big crocks of Maille grainy mustard but haven't been able to find it recently now that there are so many kinds on the shelves.
