Iâ€™m an equal condiment opportunist â€“ I love them all!Â But of the big three â€“ ketchup, mayo, and mustard â€“ the yellow stuff is my current favorite for its versatility.Â While Iâ€™m always happy to smear mayo on my burgers or dip my potatoes in ketchup, mustard really goes above and beyond.Â Itâ€™s not just a condiment â€“ itâ€™s an ingredient!
Here are some of my favorite ways to use mustard:
As a marinade for baked tofu (mixed with a little bit of olive oil)
As a flavor booster for crock pot dishes and soups
Mixed into scrambled eggs (so good)
To make homemade dressings â€“ I always follow this recipe
To dress up my favorite â€˜Chickenâ€™ Salad Sammie or potato salads
If youâ€™re looking for more fun ways to use this #NaturallyAmazing ingredient, I would highly recommend that you check out Frenchâ€™s Pinterest page.Â The Frenchâ€™s Pinterest page is packed with a ton of follow-worthy boards, including BBQ meals, kid-friendly eating tips, drink recipes, and marinade ideas.Â In fact, their recipes inspired this crunchy veggie topper!
I love this topper because you can add it to pretty much any baked veggie with yummy results.Â So far, weâ€™ve had it on roasted asparagus and baked potatoes.

Classic Yellow Mustard Crunchy Veggie Topper
Ingredients (enough topper for about 1 pound of asparagus or four servings of potatoes):
- 2/3 cup raw almonds
- 1/4 cup Frenchâ€™s Classic Yellow Mustard
- 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
- Sprinkle paprika, salt, and pepper
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Â The topping will take about 25 minutes to brown at 375 degrees, so decide whether you will need to cook the veggies/starches in advance.Â I cooked the potatoes for 25 minutes before adding the topping; I didnâ€™t precook the asparagus at all.
- In a blender or food processor, crush the almonds until they are blended to fine bits.
- Pour almonds into a bowl. Add mustard, olive oil, and spices and mix with a spoon.
- Spoon mixture on top of veggies.Â Cook for 25 minutes, remove from oven, and serve.
