What can I substitute?

I have a recipe that calls for dijon mustard, but I only have plain yellow mustard (and also mustard powder). I can't go out b/c of the weather. Can I "make" dijon mustard?

  • Do you have some horseradish (sp?)?

  • Depends on the recipe, but if it's a small part of a larger recipe just sub out regular mustard.

  • Unfortunately I do not have horseradish either. And the recipe calls for mixing some dijon with lemon juice, coating pork chops, then dredging in Italian crumbs before baking. Doesn't that sound good?

  • Do you have any brown spicy mustard, Stoneground mustard or honey -mustard? I would think all of those might make a good sustitution.

  • It does sound good. I'd do half yellow mustard, half mayonnaise (because that's a chicken recipe I have and it "seals in" the chicken's juiciness, so it'd probably work on pork, too), skipping the lemon and straight on to the breadcrumbs.

    At least, that's what I'd do (and will, next time I have pork chops and no plan for them! lol thanks for the idea!).
