I'm always looking for interesting condiments to give new zing to "the usual." But many condiments are high in fat and sugar so when I find something that is low in both, I always get a little excited. But what's new about mustard? This isn't just mustard, Maille Dijon Originale is the creamiest, richest, most flavorful mustard that has ever passed my mustard-loving lips!
Maille Dijon has a nice heat to it which is tempered by the rich, creamy texture. It doesn't burn like some other Dijon mustard I've tried over the years. As a base for vinaigrette salad dressing, it gives an amazing richness and body allowing me to use less olive oil. It's wonderful straight up on sandwiches and it makes the most amazing mock Hollandaise sauce, that Rob dubbed "Mollandaise."
Hollandaise sauce is heavenly with all that clarified butter and egg yolks but who has time to whisk an emulsion slowly over a warm water bath on a busy weekend? Mollandaise is super easy and can turn a plate of eggs (yawn) into a fabulous Sunday brunch.
For the Mollandaise sauce just mix one to two tablespoons Maille Dijon mustard and three tablespoons your favorite light mayonnaise with the juice of one lemon. That's it. Then take a whole wheat English muffin and layer it up with some veggies (steamed asparagus or artichoke hearts are best,) some Canadian or turkey bacon and a couple of poached eggs then drizzle with the sauce. Devour!
The Maille Whole Grained Dijon is delectable, too. The little mustard seeds just burst with flavor and texture. Give Maille a try!
