FFwD: Mustard Batons

Mustard Batons

French Fridays with Dorie again. So, here’s what I made last week — yeah, I have to pay closer attention to the schedule! But regardless, these were delicious!

Things I learned/notes:

1. Super easy to make a half recipe here.
2. I used a mix of mustards — a stone ground one and a double dijon.
3. I also used a mix of poppy seeds on some and sesame seeds on the others. I liked both but I kind of loved the sesame seeds.
4. Next time I must try this with olive tapenade. And maybe some Parmesan cheese. Ohhh, or roasted garlic. Okay, lots of options here! I know what I’d doing with that other sheet of puff pastry in the freezer.
5. These are almost embarrassingly easy for how wonderful they are!

Here’s a link to all the Mustard Baton posts! And below, my pictures.

  • Yummy, I’m all over these! I can’t help but notice, you look like you gave the most amazing spice rack in your kitchen. I could be wrong, but if that’s a spice rack, I’m getting my hubby to make me a similar one!

    Maya: Thanks! Ha, yeah! That’s ‘spice rack central’ on the back of the basement door. Just got a bunch of cheap wire rack shelves and drilled them into the door. It’s nice, because I can basically keep going if needed, the whole length of the door 😉

  • Nice looking batons…love your mustard.

  • Sounds like with all those great ideas you have that you need more than one sheet of puff pastry!

  • Looks delicious! I love how easy this was. I could make these all the time, and I’m loving all the variations that I’m seeing on all the Dorie posts.

  • Fabulous process photos! I still can’t get my lighting right in my kitchen. But yours are beautiful.

  • I love that you mixed the mustards together. They look great.

  • I love how yours turned out! I wanted to try sesame seeds but was worried they wouldn’t show up in pictures but now that I see yours, I see that I was wrong! I’ll definitely be trying it next time!

  • Doesn’t get better than this! I love the great color and ooomph you got on your batons!

  • I agree with everything in your list. I made a half batch myself. I like the idea of the grainy mustard and will add that to my own list of variations to try.

  • Great photos – my 17 year old and his visiting friend walked past the computer and said your batons looked “amazing”. I think they are trying to get me to make more 🙂 Nana and I had a blast making these and we will definitely be revisiting this one. Sounds like you will be enjoying trying new options as well. I am excited to try some sweet options as well (as usual). Another wonderful French Friday….

  • I mixed up the recipes recently too- so easy to do. I love the way the poppy seeds look on these. lovely

  • I am so glad I am not the only one who gets confused…
    Your photos look great!

  • Great photos! I think I’d like the sesame ones best, too. These really are easy and full of possibilities.
