Mustard 4 Thanksgiving Dinner

i know that i’m going to use mustard the day after thanksgiving (turkey sandwiches!) but i was wondering if anyone here uses mustard like Grey Poupon Mustard on the day off. i hear mustard is really good as a rub on a festive ham or turkey…anyone have any recipes to share? :slight_smile:


Here’s a few that I have:

Mustard Baked Chicken with a Pretzel Crust

1/2 lb hard pretzels, coarsely crushed (4 cups)
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
salt & freshly ground black pepper
6 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Preheat the oven to 400°. In a food processor, pulse the pretzels until coarsely ground; you should have coarse chunks and fine crumbs. Transfer to a large, shallow bowl.
Wipe out the food processor. Add the oil, whole-grain and Dijon mustards, water and vinegar and process until smooth. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
Pour half of the dressing into a large shallow bowl, add the chicken breasts and turn to coat. Dredge the chicken in the pretzel crumbs and transfer to a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in the upper third of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cooked through. Slice the chicken and serve warm or at room temperature with the remaining mustard dressing.

:smiley: Wow Kitchen I think you may have solved my Thanksgiving Dinner for the next few years. All of these recipes sound absolutely amazing. I was wondering with all these recipes if you used any Grey Poupon Mustard. If so you should dfeinently check out the 3 new flavors: Harvest Coarse Ground, Hearty Spicy Brown and Savory Honey. Really each of these flavors would work well with the recipes that u have listed: Savory Honey with your Honey Mustard Chicken. Harvest Coarse Ground with your Meatloaf and Hearty Spicy Brown on those pork chops. And because you gave a list of recipes I figure I return the favor, its on the Grey Poupon Mustard website (GREY POUPON Mustards) and its a worthy side dish with your recipes. Its called Sassy Mac and Cheese and it uses one of the new flavors: Harvest Coarse Ground :smiley:

I do make my own Dijon mustard - but in a pinch and when there is none around - I do use Grey Poupon. I tried a few different brands throughout the years - but I didn’t like them. Sometimes it’s not worth trying to save a dime on a jar!
