Let's Take A Dip

Do you have certain foods you must dip? Does your meal not seem complete unless you have a little ramekin of something extra to add? Well, if you answered yes, I think you are like most Americans, and certainly fit in w/ our family! From French Fries to sausage links, we dip so many things I don't even think about it anymore. It's become second nature to have those little dishes ready and waiting when dinner is served. So when I decided to make the Popcorn Chicken I shared w/ you yesterday I knew I needed a dipping sauce too. Now yes, for Alex that means ketchup. I swear, my kid will dip anything into ketchup! He even dips sweet potato fries in it b/c according to him, they are fries, so it tastes good. And I knew I could just have some bottled barbecue sauce on the table and it would be fine. But I wanted something a little extra special and was so hungry for honey mustard I decided to make my own. And whew~ am I glad I did. These sauce has a real "kick" to it and reminded me of ones I get at restaurants. So tangy yet sweet in the background, it went perfectly w/ those chicken bites.In fact, a big platter of that chicken, along w/ this sauce would be a great appetizer for your next backyard party! So, if your family enjoys a good "dip" as much as mine, try this one today!

Honey Mustard Sauce from MyRecipes.com
