Favorite Mustard Flavors

Updated on May 30, 2008

Remember when the only kind of mustard was the plain yellow variety? Growing up, French's Mustard was a staple in my family's home. For years, I thought that was the only type of mustard that existed. When I was a teenager, my dad discovered Grey Poupon, and it became a secondary staple in our house. Now, there are four or five types of mustard in my refrigerator at any given time. I still keep French's mustard on hand all the time, but it's always joined by several other varieties.

Jalapeno Mustard

My husband is a big fan of Jalapeno mustard. He doesn't particularly care what brand it is. He is only concerned that it's hot and spicy. Fortunately, most of the supermarkets in my city carry this type of mustard. It's delicious on hamburgers and hot dogs, and makes a great "zingy" sauce for chicken strips when mixed with pure honey.

Coarse Ground Mustard

I really like coarse ground mustard. It's probably my personal favorite. I use it on fresh veggie and deli meat sandwich wraps on whole wheat tortillas. When I make baked beans, I always stir in a few tablespoons of coarse ground mustard. This condiment gives baked beans a really unique flavor. It's also a terrific addition to homemade potato salad. Around the holidays, I always keep this kind of mustard on hand, as it's the best condiment for sandwiches made from leftover roasted turkey and baked ham.

Spicy Brown Mustard

Spicy brown mustard adds a great flavor to ham sandwiches, as well as other types of deli meat sandwiches. It's also a great seasoning for baked beans and potato salad. This type of mustard also makes a great sauce for chicken strips when blended with honey. It's also a great topping for hamburgers.

Honey Mustard

Honey mustard is a great, versatile condiment. It's a delicious addition to many recipes, particularly baked beans. If you want to give your favorite store bought barbecue sauce a really unique flavor, try blending some honey mustard into the sauce before using it to baste your favorite meat on the grill. You'll be in for a real taste treat.

Champagne Mustard

One of my favorite specialty mustards is Cherchie's Champagne mustard. It has a really smooth and delicious taste. If you have a chance to try this delicious mustard, try it on a grilled cheese sandwich. As odd as it sounds, there's not much better than a grilled cheese sandwich made with Cherchie's champagne mustard, extra sharp cheddar cheese, and whole wheat bread.

    I like the plain yellow mustard but there is a hot mustard, Keens that i also enjoy. I have tried a number of different varieties but always come back to these two.
