Haven’t done a review in way too long! Went into the pantry yesterday and randomly selected a mustard:
I bought this about a month ago and hadn’t tried it yet. Popped off the top, stuck my finger in and took a taste. It was GOOD. So good that I stuck aforementioned finger back in for another taste…hey, I’m the only one who eats mustard around here and anyway, isn’t this the kind of stuff that makes living alone so awesome?
At first, I almost got a little hint of bacon, but after tasting it again, the smokiness stood out as a unique flavor of its own. I love the smell and taste of Wright’s Liquid Smoke, and this mustard reminded me of that, in a really good way. It isn’t spicy at all, but is wonderfully flavorful without being overwhelming. Really, really delicious.
So I ate it all day, of course.
First, in the morning mashed up with some hard-boiled eggs. Amazing breakfast.
Later, mixed with some Fage Greek yogurt as topping for these Mediterranean Chickpea & Spinach Patties that I’m completely obsessed with lately. I normally eat them topped with Greek yogurt mixed with a little garlic salt and dill, but the addition of this mustard today was unbelievably good. I’ll be doing this every time I have these patties from now on.
Finally, as accompaniment for a couple of Smart Dogs. Again, really good.
I’m looking forward to trying this mustard with some of my usual staples, Johnsonville Polska Kielbasa and Trader Joe’s Sweet Italian Chicken Sausages, but I honestly think the smoky flavor would be great with any sausage or meat imaginable. And as you saw from my day, it is delicious with non-meat items as well.
Oh, and if you are put off at all by the idea of whiskey in your mustard, don’t worry. First, there doesn’t appear to be any actual alcohol in the product – “whiskey flavoring” is listed in the ingredients (obviously if you’re severely allergic or have other concerns, check with the company on this). Secondly, even that “whiskey flavoring” is pretty darn subtle…I absolutely detest whiskey (I came very close to being sick at a whiskey tasting a few years ago for a restaurant job) and didn’t get a hint of it in this mustard. I’m sure it adds to the smokiness, but all I got was deliciousness.
This mustard is definitely worth adding to your mustard repertoire. I don’t remember where I bought it but the price sticker says $3.19 which is very reasonable for a 9 oz. bottle. I think all mustard lovers will find many uses for this! Let me know what you think if you’ve had it before or if you decide to try it!
