The Secret Ingredient – Whole Grain Dijon Mustard

Ham and cheese is a classic sandwich, so it only makes sense that they would go well together in a muffin. And just like on a sandwich mustard brings out the flavors and makes it even better. I used Whole Grain Dijon Mustard, mainly because that is what I had in the refrigerator.  But it really improved the looks of the muffins as you can see the flecks of mustard seed through out the muffins.  I am sure they would taste just as good with regular Dijon Mustard, but they wouldn’t look as pretty!

While these were cooking they smelled noticeably of mustard, so much so that I was worried I had added too much.  But once baked the mustard flavor is subtle, and I think 3 Tablespoons is the perfect amount.
