Boiled Mustard Potatoes

Recipe by  

"This is a side dish that my husband's family in the south has been eating with corned beef and cabbage for years. It's a great addition to this traditional meal. The potatoes act like a sponge, taking in the mustard flavor. YUM!"

I followed the recipe exactly except that I left the peel on and I enjoyed these very much. I garnished with parsley and next time I will add some pepper. This was a very nice side dish that would compliment many main dishes.

This recipe was okay. I loved the idea of it - we are mustard loving people in my family! The flavor was very understated, and only seemed to permeate the outer layer of the potato instead of permeating all the way through. I think that I might try this again with diced potatoes instead of halves, and perhaps a little mustard powder added to up the flavor.

A great concept! I added a dash of ground mustard and some tumeric for extra color. Sprinkled with paprika to plate. Beautiful, fun, unique and delicious.

I adored...hubby just ate. Gave the taters a real pleasant flavor...and something different. Makes me wonder what other additions to potatoes would be good. Thanks for a great unique recipe!

I made a single serving of these using 1 potato and 1 tbsp of mustard (as per AR conversion). I agree with other reviewers the flavour is a bit understated. I will try adding a bit more mustard next time. Fresh ground sea salt was very nice on these. I served it with ham and sauteed cabbage. Would be great with corned beef also!

boy made these for me with a dijon-garlic mustard aioli (from trader joes) and peeled baby red potatoes. it was delicious! not too much of a salt flavor, so i had to add that afterward, the texture and the taste were so different than anything i've ever had!! definitely recommend. thanks for the recipe!

I was excited to try this easy recipe, but was very disappointed. The potatoes tasted like plain boiled potatoes. I even added some spicy mustard to the recipe and still didn't get any flavor.
