Once Upon A Time… I made some amazing sausage balls. Delicious as they were, they needed some sort of sauce. After taking a look around the kitchen I decided to try my hand at a tangy Beer Mustard dipping sauce.
These are the four main ingredients I used but I did end up adding salt and yellow mustard to achieve the flavor profile I had in mind. The fun thing about this recipe is that you can adjust your proportions and play with flavors to get to a place you’re happy with.
More mayonnaise and less beer will get you a thicker, less zippy flavor. More whole grain mustard and less yellow mustard gives you a stronger ale flavor. More honey and less beer gives you a sweeter flavor. I think maybe you get it by now. I’m just dragging this out because I want to meet a minimum word count on this recipe and there’s not really a whole lot to say about it. Haha!
Combine all your ingredients into a larger bowl than you think you’ll need so you have plenty of room to whisk and add more flavor. Any Chef or great cook will tell you it is important to taste as you go. This recipe is no exception! I think I tasted it at least 10 times looking for the right taste.
Something else about this sauce is that it tastes even better after sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or even overnight.
This sauce is also very versatile. I made it for sausage balls but we also used it as a dipping sauce for some beer battered fish we made the following evening. We also used it as a spread on a breakfast sandwich that incorporated leftover sausage balls. Yes, you’ll be getting that recipe soon.
As always, please share with us when you make this super yummy Beer Mustard!
