Do you have a T+T recipe that uses mustard? Any style of mustard is fine.

That's our focus that Rosewitch picked for the next two weeks.

Put on your thinking caps, flavored mustards, dry mustard, honey mustard, dijon, plain, it doesn't matter.

This cookalong will run until Oct.3, 2010.

Mustard is not the star of this dish but it is important.

**Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Warm Cider Vinaigrette**

2008, Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, All Rights Reserved

Prep Time:15 min Inactive Prep Time:-- Cook Time:28 min

Level:Easy

Serves:4 servings

Ingredients

* 1 (1 1/2-pound) butternut squash, peeled and 3/4-inch) diced * Good olive oil * 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup * Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper * 3 tablespoons dried cranberries * 3/4 cup apple cider or apple juice * 2 tablespoons cider vinegar * 2 tablespoons minced shallots * 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard * 4 ounces baby arugula, washed and spun dry * 1/2 cup walnuts halves, toasted * 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the butternut squash on a sheet pan. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, the maple syrup, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and toss. Roast the squash for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until tender. Add the cranberries to the pan for the last 5 minutes.

While the squash is roasting, combine the apple cider, vinegar, and shallots in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until the cider is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Off the heat, whisk in the mustard, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.

Place the arugula in a large salad bowl and add the roasted squash mixture, the walnuts, and the grated Parmesan. Spoon just enough vinaigrette over the salad to moisten and toss well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Oh no!!!! Don't stop the chocolate yet!!

Mustard....
How about mustard coated saddle of lamb?
One saddle cut lamb roast.
Dijon mustard to coat 5 or 6 cloves of garlic, either crushed or finely chopped 2 cups home made toasted unseasoned bread crumbs 2 T dry chopped parsley ( dry mixes better with the crumbs than fresh) 2 teaspoons of dry oregano Mix seasonings with the crumbs Salt and pepper.
Bring the meat to room temp...pat dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Smear it with the garlic and with prepared Grey Poupon mustard ( or any other good Dijon mustard) and press the seasoned crumbs into the mustard to coat well.
Place on a shallow baking oan and roast in a preheated 375 oven until done to your liking.
Sorry, I can't give a time because it depends on the size of the roast and how done you like it.
For a 4 or 5 pound roast cooked medium rare 40 minutes is about right.
Remember a saddle roast has a lot of bone and cooks more rapdcly than a boneless leg.

I love sauces and gravy so I'll share these two faves of mine. I double the sauce for Weed's recipe. Love to pour some over couscous that I usally make with it.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Cream (Weed) Serves: 2

1# pork tenderloin, cut into 2" slices Seasoned flour 2 Tbl. butter, divided 2 tsp. canola or olive oil 2 green onions, thinly sliced (coin shape), white and green parts separated 1/3 cup white wine or dry vermouth 1/2 cup heavy cream 1 tsp. Dijon mustard (or more to taste) salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to low, about 170 degrees F Lightly pound pork medallions to 1" thick.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and 2 tsp. oil over medium high heat.
Dredge pork in seasoned flour. Add pork slices all at once to pan and saute 2 minutes per side.
Remove to a plate and hold in the oven while finishing the sauce. (pork will be a bit underdone but will finish in the oven.) Add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter to pan.
Add white part of onion, saute for 1 minute.
Add wine or vermouth, simmer until syrupy and reduced to about 3 tablespoons.
Add cream, simmer 2 - 3 minutes until thickened.* Stir in Dijon, add salt and pepper to taste.
Return pork to pan to coat with sauce. Serve over rice or pasta, garnishing with the green part of the onion.
*If sauce ends up too thick for your liking, add a little water or milk, but no more than 1/4 cup. You can double the sauce ingredients so there is enough to pour over rice.

MQ's Steak Diane for Two (Mqmoi) Mark Bittman, New York Times

2 6-ounce beef fillets, cut from the tenderloin (filet mignon), preferably not too lean Salt and pepper 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon minced shallot or onion 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, or to taste (I added 1/2 t. extra because dh likes it) � cup heavy cream or half-and-half Lemon juice to taste, optional Chopped fresh chives or parsley leaves for garnish.

1. Flatten fillets a bit with the palm of your hand, the back of a skillet or a small mallet; they should be about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and a lot of pepper. In small skillet, preferably one just large enough to hold fillets, combine oil and tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat. When butter foam melts, sear steaks on both sides, just until browned, no more than 2 minutes a side. Remove to platter.
2. Wipe pan clean with towel; add remaining butter over medium heat, with shallot or onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in mustard, Worcestershire and cream. Add some salt and a fair amount of pepper. Stir once or twice, then taste and adjust seasoning.
3. Keeping mixture at a steady simmer, return meat and accumulated juices to pan. Cook, turning two or three times, until meat is done to your liking, just 1 or 2 minutes a side for medium-rare. Remove to a plate, and add lemon juice, if using, salt and pepper to the sauce as needed. Spoon sauce over meat, garnish with chives or parsley, and serve.

Wow; lots of lovely ideas already!

And David the two you added are similar to the one recipe I use the most. Looks like mixing mustard with cream is something lots of cooks do!

I can't remember where I found this recipe. I think it may have been in one of the magazines I used to subscribe to years ago. I have been making it for at least 30 years! I wrote it down on a 4x6 recipe card and the card has bent corners but I still pull it out of my recipe box when I want to make this dish.

Chicken with Mustard and Cream

2 chicken breasts-whole, skinned and boned 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1 Tablespoon olive oil 2 Tablespoons butter 2 Tablespoons chopped green onions 1 cup mushrooms, thickly sliced 1/3 cup dry white wine 1/2 cup heavy cream 2 to 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

Cut chicken breasts into 4 halves. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Saute chicken in butter and oil in a large skillet, shaking pan to prevent sticking until lightly golden, about 6 minutes. Turn, lower heat and saute until chicken is just tender, about 4 minutes longer. Chicken should feel springy with no pink remaining. Cover and cook 2 minutes longer to steam.
Remove chicken from pan, cover and keep warm.

Pour fat from skillet into a cup. Return 2 Tablespoons to the skillet. Saute shallots about 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and cook and stir until golden. Add wine, bring to a boil and cook until syrupy. Add cream and any juices from the chicken. Cook until slightly thickened. Stir in mustard, taste and add seasonings if needed. Add parsley. Pour sauce over chicken and serve.

I am copying and pasting all of the others.

I copied and saved 3 or 4 of these and will stay tuned for more. I don't have a recipe to share, but here's one for MAKING your own mustard. I got brown mustard seeds from Penzey's.

Spicy Guinness Mustard Our favorite mustard recipe uses brown mustard seeds and Guinness beer (which lends a malty character and hints of sweetness).
1 12-oz. bottle Guinness Extra Stout 1 1⁄2 cups brown mustard seeds (10 oz.) 1 cup red wine vinegar 1 tbsp. kosher salt 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper 1⁄4 tsp. ground cinnamon 1⁄4 tsp. ground cloves 1⁄4 tsp. ground nutmeg 1⁄4 tsp. ground allspice

1. Combine ingredients in a nonreactive mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 1�2 days so that the mustard seeds soften and the flavors meld.

2. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a food processor and process, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, until the seeds are coarsely ground and the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a jar and cover.

3. Refrigerate overnight and use immediately or refrigerate for up to 6 months. (The flavor of the mustard will mellow as the condiment ages.)

MAKES 3 1⁄2 CUPS

Brilliant choice Rosewitch! I love mustard. I have more recipes to post, but my two favorites I don't have a recipe for. Mix dijon mustard, mayo and dill to taste and thin with a little water for a great salad dressing. Can add garlic or chopped parsley and chives if you are so inclined, and a drop of honey if you are sensitive to the tang of mustard. Mom's famous potato salad is made with grainy dijon mixed with mayo and dill for the dressing. I do ham roll ups with thin shaved ham and swiss cheese, romaine lettuce leaves, mayo and dijon mustard mixed with some fresh herbs--dill, parsley, oregano, marjoram, savory, tarragon, chervil, whatever you like but don't overdo it. Roll up and slice into pinweels and get raves at a party--mmm, what's in these?

Put mustard on a grilled cheese made with lowfat cheese, to make up for their generally bland taste. Same with pasta sauces made with lowfat cheese, add a dab of mustard.

Oh... I forgot!

I spread dijion mustard on raw salmon. Then I wrap it up in parchment paper and nuke it. One of my favorite quick meals as a frozen portion of salmon is ready to eat after about 3 minutes of nuking. The mustard flavor blends with the salmon leaving no distinct mustard flavor but it also takes the fishy edge off leaving the salmon sweet and mild.

It works in a covered microwave dish as well but parchment paper is disposable.

Tomatobob, can you type out your measurements so they show us as numbers? I was hoping someone would post a recipe for making your own mustard. I think that would be fun.

That Cheesy Baked Penne with Cauliflower recipe looks good, if not a teeny bit fattening, lol. it might be a way to get some veggies down my DIL. What's the asterisk by the creme fraiche* symbolize?

I'll have to research to find mustard recipes to share.

Got this in an old issue of Gourmet. It took me a long time to appreciate eating fruit with meat. This recipe is really good.

PORK LOIN WITH APPLES, PRUNES, AND MUSTARD CREAM SAUCE

1 (4 lb.) boneless pork loin roast, tied by butcher 1-3/4 tsp. salt 1-1/2 tsp. black pepper 1 Tblsp. olive oil 2 Granny Smith apples (3/4 lb. total) 1 large onion, chopped 1/2 cup packed dried pitted prunes (sometimes called dried plums; 4-1/2 oz.), quartered 1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (12 oz.) 3/4 cup water 1/2 cup heavy cream 2 Tblsp. coarse-grain mustard 1/2 cup dry white wine

Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 375�F.
Halve pork loin crosswise, then pat dry and sprinkle with 1 tsp. salt and 3/4 tsp. pepper (total). Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then brown pork, 1 piece at a time, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes per piece. Transfer to a small flameproof roasting pan as browned (do not clean skillet) and roast pork until thermometer inserted diagonally at least 2 inches into meat registers 150�F, 40 to 50 minutes.

While pork roasts, peel, quarter, and core apples, then cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges. Pour off all but 1 Tblsp. fat from skillet, and then cook onion in skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add apples, prunes, broth, and water and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in cream and mustard and simmer until sauce is slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and keep sauce warm, partially covered.

Transfer pork to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Add wine to roasting pan and boil over high heat, stirring and scraping up brown bits, until reduced to about 1/4 cup, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir pan juices into cream sauce along with remaining 3/4 tsp. salt and remaining 3/4 tsp. pepper and heat sauce over moderate heat, stirring, until hot.

Discard string from pork and cut each half crosswise into 4 slices. Serve pork with sauce. Makes 8 servings.

From Gourmet, February 2004.

Mustard Yum! Honey mustard is a favourite of mine. Here are two recipes I love and make often.

The Pantry Shelf�s Raspberry Vinaigrette

2 T Raspberry Vinegar 2 T Sugar 1 t Honeycup Mustard 1/2 t salt 1/2 c vegetable oil ( don't use olive oil)

Mix first 4 ingredients in a food processor. With the blade still running gradually add oil. Store in the refrigerator.

Palmiers With Honey Mustard And Prosciutto (Silver Palate)

1 sheet puff pastry -- 18 x 11" 3 Tbsp honey mustard 4 Ounces prosciutto thinly sliced 1 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated 1 egg 2 tsp water

Place the puff pastry on a work surface and spread the mustard over the top.

Arrange the prosciutto evenly over the mustard to cover all the pastry, and then sprinkle with the Parmesan. Lightly press the cheese into the prosciutto with a rolling pin. Starting at one long edge, roll up the puff pastry like a jelly roll just to the middle of the dough; then roll up the other side in the same fashion, making two rolls that meet in the center. Using a serrated knife, cut the rolls crosswise into 1/2" slices. Place the slices on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and press lightly with your hands to flatten.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl. Brush the top of each palmier with the egg wash. Bake until puffed and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

OK, here's the corrected mustard recipe. That's what I get for assuming that "block and copy" would copy what I had blocked! Today a friend and I cured our own pastrami, and I'm looking forward to using this mustard on pastrami and provolone sandwiches on pumpernickle. Yum.

Spicy Guinness Mustard Our favorite mustard recipe uses brown mustard seeds and Guinness beer (which lends a malty character and hints of sweetness).
1 12-oz. bottle Guinness Extra Stout 1 & 1/2 cups brown mustard seeds (10 oz.) 1 cup red wine vinegar 1 tbsp. kosher salt 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp. ground cloves 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg 1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1. Combine ingredients in a nonreactive mixing bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 2 days so that the mustard seeds soften and the flavors meld.

2. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a food processor and process, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, until the seeds are coarsely ground and the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a jar and cover.

3. Refrigerate overnight and use immediately or refrigerate for up to 6 months. (The flavor of the mustard will mellow as the condiment ages.)

MAKES 3 & 1/2 CUPS

While doing some fall cleaning and rearranging of bookshelves over the weekend, I found a book that I read some time ago. I had totally forgotten that there was a story in this book about a county fair that included a Mad for Mustard competition! Of course there is a mystery in the story and the book is filled with lots of recipes using herbs and this story has lots of ways to use mustard. The book is now waiting in my kitchen for use very soon but I had to add some of the recipes to this thread.

All recipes are from "Mustard Madness" one of the stories in "An Unthymely Death and Other Garden Mysteries" by Susan Wittig Albert.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pete Hitchen's Blue-Ribbon Beer Mustard

1 c dark beer 1/4c yellow mustard seeds 1/4 c brown mustard seeds 1-1/2 c apple cider vinegar 1 small onion, chopped 6 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 c mustard powder 2 T. ice water 1-1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp sugar 1/2 tsp ground allspice 1/2 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp grated fresh ginger

Pour beer over the mustard seeds and let soak overnight. In a non-reactive (glass or stainless) pan, place vinegar, garlic, and onion. Simmer until liquid is reduced by two thirds. Strain and chill. Mix dry mustard and ice water and let sit for 20 minutes. Stir in cold vinegar, salt, sugar, allspice, cumin, ginger, and soaked mustard seeds. Place in a blender container and blend until mustard seeds are coarsely ground, scraping sides often. Pour into a saucepan and simmer over very low heat 10-15 minutes, until it thickens. Cool, place in a glass jar with a tight lid, and let sit in a dark cupboard for 4-5 weeks before using. Refrigerate after opening. Makes about 1 pint.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Homer Mayo's Horseradish Mustard

1/2 c mustard powder 1/2 c hot water 1/2 c white wine vinegar or rice vinegar 2 tsp salt 1 T. prepared horseradish 2 cloves garlic, finely minced 1 tsp sugar 1/8 tsp black pepper 1/8 tsp ground allspice additional vinegar, if necessary

Mix the dry mustard and water and let stand for 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. In a blender container, combine the vinegar, salt, horseradish, garlic, sugar, pepper, and allspice. Process until the garlic and horseradish have been pureed, then strain through a fine-meshed strainer, pressing out the juice from any pulp in the strainer. Discard the material in the strainer. In the top of a double boiler, combine the strained liquid with the mustard-water paste. Cook over simmering water for about 5 minutes, until the mustard has begun to thicken (it will continue to thicken as it cools). Remove from heat and allow to cool. If the mustard is too thick, thin it with a few drops of additional vinegar. Place in a glass jar with a tight lid, and let sit in a dark cupboard for 4-5 weeks before using. Refrigerate after opening. Makes about 1/2 cup.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Genevieve Schultz's Grilled Chicken with Rosemary-Mustard Marinade

To make Mustard-Rosemary Marinade, combine in a bowl:

1 c vinegar 1/3 c olive oil 3 T. Dijon mustard 1 tsp mustard seeds 1 large clove garlic, minced fine 3-4 T. fresh rosemary, chopped, or 1 T. dried freshly ground pepper, to taste

Marinate chicken (skinless breasts or other pieces) overnight. Grill, brushing frequently with remaining marinade.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Prissy Taggert's Spicy Sauted Veggies

1/4 c vegetable oil black peppercorns (5 for a mild taste, 10 for medium-hot, 20 for hot) 1 T. white sesame seeds 1 tsp whole cumin seeds 1 tsp yellow or brown mustard seeds 3 T. freshly grated ginger 1 red onion, sliced lengthwise 1/2 tsp turmeric 1/2 tsp cayenne (reduce or omit for a milder taste) 1/2 lb fresh green beans, washed, ends trimmed 1 red bell pepper, seeded, cut into strips 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, cut into strips 1 cup sliced mushrooms 2 tsp lemon juice salt to taste

In a wok or large nonstick skillet, heat oil, over medium heat. Combine peppercorns, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, and mustard seeds. Add to oil and cover immediately, reducing heat to low. (Seeds will pop.) When seeds have browned (20 seconds or less), add grated ginger and onion. Turn heat to medium-high and saute until onions are translucent. Add turmeric and cayenne and saute for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add green beans, and saute until beans are bright green. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, then add bell peppers. Saute until peppers are slightly browned, then add mushrooms and cook 3-4 minutes longer, until vegetables are cooked but still crisp. Add lemon juice and salt to taste.

Pork Roasted the Way the Tuscan Do

This is a wonderful and easy technique for pork roasted inside a baguette with wonderful fresh herbs and of course garlic and olive oil! I'm sure this will become a favorite of yours too - it's great to bring on a picnic lunch!
2 teaspoons fresh chopped sage 2 teaspoons fresh chopped rosemary 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 cloves garlic, minced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon fennel pollen* 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 pork tenderloin, trimmed 1 loaf crusty baguette 3-4 T Dijon mustard (opt) On a work surface, mince the sage, rosemary, pepper, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and fennel pollen together.
Heat a frying pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil. Cook the pork, turning occasionally, until golden on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes. If you like, at this point, you can smear the seared pork with Dijon Mustard before rolling in the herbs. (This step adds moisture to the meat which I prefer).
Roll the pork in the herb mixture and set aside. Cut the baguette in half the long way and scoop out the soft insides. Brush the inside of the baguette with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Place the pork on the inside of the baguette so that the pork is completely enclosed. Trim off the excess ends of the bread. Tie the baguette, at 1-to 2-inch intervals, with kitchen string.
Preheat an oven to 375�F. Place the pork on a baking sheet and roast until done, 155�F on an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part, 25 to 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven, let rest 10 minutes. Remove the strings and cut into slices. Serve.
Serves 4

I almost forgot this one which I must make again as it was so good! I found the recipe at Delia Online

First photo taken while it was on the stove and second when plated:

PORK STROGANOFF WITH THREE MUSTARDS

Text from Delia Online:

'This is what I'd call a five-star supper dish for two people, with the added bonus that it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish.
Serve it with plain boiled basmati rice and a salad of tossed green leaves.'

Serves 2 Ingredients

12 oz (350 g) pork tenderloin 1 level teaspoon mustard powder 1 heaped teaspoon grain mustard 1 heaped teaspoon Dijon mustard 4 oz (110 g) small open-cap mushrooms 7 fl oz (200 ml) creme fraiche 1 dessertspoon groundnut oil 1/2 oz (10 g) butter 1 small onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced 3 fl oz (75 ml) dry white wine salt and freshly milled black pepper

You will also need a 9 inch (23 cm) solid frying pan.

First of all prepare the pork by trimming it and cutting it into strips 3 inches (7.5 cm) long and 1/4 inch (5 mm) wide. Then prepare the mushrooms by slicing them through the stalk into thin slices.

Now, in a small bowl, mix together the three mustards with the creme fraiche and, when you're ready to cook the pork, take the frying pan and heat the oil and butter together over a medium heat. Add the onion slices and fry them gently for about 2-3 minutes until they're soft.

Using a draining spoon, remove the onions to a plate, turn the heat up under the pan to its highest setting and, when it's smoking hot, add the strips of pork and fry them quickly, keeping them on the move all the time so they cook evenly, without burning. Then add the mushrooms and toss these around to cook very briefly until their juices start to run. After that, return the onion slices to the pan and stir them in. Season well with salt and pepper, then add the wine and let it bubble and reduce slightly before adding the creme fraiche. Now stir the whole lot together and let the sauce bubble and reduce to half its original volume. Serve immediately spooned over rice.

This recipe is taken from Delia Smith's Winter Collection.

It's time for a new Cookalong. I got busy with getting ready for my kitchen redo. Would you believe that my mouse scroll wore out? Yup, I need to buy a new mouse. I blame it on the 1000's of pages of lighting fixtures I've been looking at.

I just drew a name....ready?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Chase <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Sharon, pick the next subject, please. Post it right here and I'll get the new Cookalong set up.

Ooops didn't see this until now....thanks to a little nudge from Nancy!

I'm going to change it up a bit and pick a meat. We love PORK TENDERLOIN and have gone through my repertoire several times. Would love some new ideas.

Sharon, I've been staying away from meat, poultry, seafood and fish, so that there are no conflicts with religions or non- meat eaters.

Any other ideas?

Here's a recipe using whole grain mustard in a silky, warm, crunchy potato salad that I found on Tastespotting. It serves 2, but I could eat it all myself lol. I like to make it as a side with grilled steaks.

WARM POTATO SALAD WITH RED ONION, DILL AND WHOLEGRAIN MUSTARD (serves 2)

Ingredients:
2 large waxy potatoes 2 Tbsp finely diced red onion 2 Tbsp good mayonnaise 1 tsp wholegrain mustard 1/2 tsp dried dill salt and pepper

Method:
Boil the potatoes, then place them in cold water to cool down. When cool enough to touch, peel and chop into large cubes.
Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Check seasoning and add salt and black pepper to taste. Serve while the potatoes are still warm.

My computer died on 9/17 for 3+ weeks so I completely missed this Cookalong.

MUSTARD CHICKEN

4 boneless chicken breast halves 1/2 of a juicy lemon Salt and freshly ground pepper Butter or margarine About 1/4 cup Dijon-style prepared mustard 1/2 cup unseasoned fine dry breadcrumbs

Squeeze lemon juice over both sides of chicken, then season with salt & pepper. Melt about 1/ 4 cup of butter and brush both sides lightly with butter or margarine and place in shallow broiler-proof pan. Roast in preheated 425 degree oven, turning twice, for 15-25 minutes or until just barely tender. Remove from oven and cool slightly.

Spread the flat side with a layer of mustard; then turn breast mustard side down into a bowl containing the crumbs. Press with fingers to make a thin layer of crumbs over the mustard. Return to baking pan, crumb side up. Repeat with the other 3 chicken breasts.

Drizzle the remaining melted butter or margarine (should be about 2 Tbs. ��" if not, melt additional) evenly over the crumbs. (I like to brush the butter on to get it even but it takes practice to do it without messing up the crumbs.)

Set broiler about 6-7” from heat and preheat. Broil until crumbs are crisp and golden brown. Watch carefully that crumbs do not burn. Serve warm or cold.
