If doing more with fewer ingredients is your mission this year, we have a winner. Our Texas Pete® Test Kitchen has been working on quick and easy tweaks to sure-fire winners, and our latest is our Blazing Honey Mustard Sauce. Here’s why you should try it, and how to make it for summertime menus today.

Honey mustard is already on 24 percent* of all restaurant menus, and it continues to grow. It has great versatility across a traditional menu, from sandwiches to salads, sides and appetizers.

Appetizer Chart

Datassential is seeing double-digit growth among these fried vegetable appetizers.

Among the fastest-growing fried vegetable appetizers, honey mustard is a perfect dip for everything from cauliflower to broccoli to fried pickles. Yet, its sweet spot is flavoring center of-the-plate crowd favorites, such as chicken tenders, sandwiches and chicken-centric salads.

Texas Pete® Honey Mustard Sauce is unique because it is vinegar-based, with a tangy sweetness for a healthier option than traditional honey mustard sauces. For takeout or delivery, via new 1 oz. dipping cups, or gallon jugs for back-of-house, operators can instantly differentiate their honey mustard offering using Texas Pete® Honey Mustard Sauce.

Spicing it up is easy by adding just three additional ingredients and some Texas Pete® Dust Dry Seasoning to create your own signature spicy honey mustard sauce.
