Slather mustard on burgers off the grill

Happy May Day! Here we go, kicking off a busy month with JUCO frenzy, graduations, fishing for the big ones, picnics in the park and in the backyard.

It’s also the official beginning of summer barbecue and burger season. The aroma of burgers on the grill that spreads through the neighborhood says it’s so. Who cares about the calendar.

Let’s celebrate this time-honored season with mustards: Honey, Spicy Brown, Dijon, Honey Dijon, Wine Dijon and so many more.

For well more than a hundred years it’s been French’s Classic Yellow Mustard. Is it in your fridge?

Set up a “burger bar” with a variety of mustards, veggies, buns, cheeses and these delicious topping recipes.
