    I made this for 4th of July, and I kept the sauce on the side. Everyone enjoyed it both with and without the mustard sauce. Very easy to make and delicious!

    This was great. I had a lot of leftover mustard sauce that will reappear as a topping for a chili stuffed baked potato!

    Very tasty. Loved the addition of stone ground mustard to a potato topping.

    Good. very easy to make. Could make potatoes ahead, wrap in foil and reheat on grill for camping, picnic, or tailgating... If sauce made ahead, I would let come to room temp and then just toss hot potatoes with sauce before serving.

    This recipe was amazing, very easy to make and a great alternative to potato salad. The sauce was creamy, delicious, and made a surprisingly elegant dish.
