Mayonnaise is a delicious cold sauce made of raw egg yolks mixed with vegetable oil to form an emulsion, then flavor-modified with mustard, herbs or citrus juice to your liking. Used frequently as an addition to sandwiches and salads but also essential in creating the hollandaise sauce used when serving eggs Benedict.
Homemade mayonnaise can be created using either an electric mixer or vigorous whisking by hand, with oil added slowly drop by drop until it thickens and becomes creamy.
Choose mayonnaise made with olive or avocado oil as it provides added nutrition.
Maille dijon mustard is an indispensable pantry item that adds an exciting burst of flavor to any meal. Boasting an irresistibly tasty balance between sweet and spicy notes, Maille Dijon can be used in endless delicious recipes!
These delightful ham treats owe their delicious flavor to a buttery marinade applied prior to baking. This zesty sauce consists of Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and poppy seeds combined with paprika and kosher salt for an irresistibly rich and savory taste – make sure that kosher salt rather than table salt is used as it has milder notes that help prevent the butter from becoming overly salty!
Worcestershire sauce is an umami-rich fermented condiment. A staple ingredient in Caesar salad dressing and Bloody Mary cocktails, Worcestershire also adds earthy depth to dishes as a side ingredient and pairs beautifully with sandwiches featuring ham.
Worcestershire sauce is most frequently made with distilled vinegar and anchovies, but you can also purchase low-sodium versions if you’re on a diet or prefer not eating anchovies. Lea & Perrins offer low-sodium Worcestershire sauce products.
These delectable ham treats are great for parties and potlucks, and can even be prepared ahead of time by covering and refrigerating until ready for baking.
Poppy seeds are rich in minerals and antioxidants, providing an aromatic crunch in sandwiches or muffins and cakes. Poppy seed filling is easy to prepare in both the refrigerator or freezer and lasts well in either environment.
With a serrated knife, cut the rolls in half with their cut sides facing upward. Spread each half with Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and poppy seed mixture before layering ham slices over cheese in an even layer on one half. Complete each sandwich by topping each with another roll brushed evenly with butter before baking until golden brown and toasty.
Garlic powder can make for an effective alternative to fresh garlic when mincing is time consuming and cumbersome, and its finer consistency allows less garlic powder to achieve the same level of flavor than granulated varieties.
Garlic salt contains more sodium than garlic powder; to cut back on sodium intake in your meal, replace equal parts garlic salt with equal parts garlic powder in recipes that call for it.
Butter is a versatile dairy product that can be used as both a spread and condiment, and used as an ingredient in various cooking recipes. A rich source of vitamins A and E as well as other nutrients, it should be stored at room temperature; for long-term storage it should be placed in the fridge.
Ham Delights can be made easily using melted butter combined with mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and poppy seeds. Spread this mixture onto one side of each Hawaiian roll before placing them into an ovenproof baking pan until toasty and cheese melts completely – an ideal appetizer or tailgating snack! This dish makes a fantastic appetizer at parties and tailgates alike!
