Super Quick & Versatile Maple Mustard Sauce
This sauce was developed when I created the One-Pan Chicken, Carrots & Potatoes with Maple Mustard Sauce, that happens to be an Elimination Safe Recipe.
The simple combination of maple syrup and mustard – in this case part Dijon and part coarse ground mustard – is so easy and yet so flavorful that we decided we had to bring it to you as a stand-alone recipe.
We loved it so much with chicken, we started to wonder, what else could it enhance? Turns out it is a truly fabulous glaze for pork, as in our Pork Loin with Maple Mustard Sauce.
Just How Versatile is It?
We like it paired with foods as they cook as well as a slather to go on after the protein is done. Try it on salmon steaks, ham or even as a condiment for turkey burgers.
Make sure to use pure maple syrup, of course. Sometimes if we are in a rush we pick up a bottle. When we are having one of our better planning days we take advantage of the bulk maple syrup in our local Whole Foods store as it is more economical.

Simple whisk together the maple syrup and both mustards until smooth. Use as a glaze before cooking or as a slather or sauce after. Try topping meatloaf or salmon, pork or even tofu!
