Creamy Honey Mustard Sauce
My parents call me the condiment queen. I love all sauces, dips, and dressings, but my favorite is honey mustard. I made this creamy honey mustard sauce to mimic the one we had in my high school cafeteria.
Like only high schoolers can, I survived on a lot of diet coke, yogurt, pretzels, and honey mustard to make it through my high school years. The honey mustard I remember was smooth, creamy, tangy and just slightly sweet. I wanted that exact same flavor in my home kitchen.
I suspect that the creamy honey mustard sauce of my memories was made with less than desirable ingredients. This copycat version can be made with a few simple ingredients and in just a few minutes. I hope my high school friends will make this recipe and be transported back to 2010 like I was when I tasted this sauce!

Like I said, if I were still a junior in high school, I’d mindlessly dip pretzels into this creamy honey mustard sauce for hours on end. Since I am a little more grown up (only slightly) I have found a few other ways to eat it. It is especially good on homemade chicken nuggets.
I have two recipes for homemade chicken nuggets that I recommend. One is my potato chip chicken tender recipe and the other is my low carb air fryer chicken nuggets. Both are delicious homemade options for kids and adults alike.
I also enjoyed this homemade creamy honey mustard sauce on some turkey sandwiches. I made a few for a road trip over the weekend and ended up sharing one with my friend Paige. Unprompted she said to me, “What is this sauce on here? It’s so good!” I said, “Coming to the blog soon I promise!”
My goal with my blog and Instagram is to show others just how easy it is to cook at home. Sure you could go to the store and grab a bottle of honey mustard, but you could save some money and eat a little healthier by making it at home. This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to put together.
I filmed a video of exactly how I make this creamy honey mustard sauce. Hit play on the video below to see the process sped up to less than a minute. You can see just how easy it is to make this healthy and delicious sauce!
You only need a few simple ingredients and kitchen tools to make this creamy honey mustard sauce. The only kitchen tools that I use are an immersion blender and a wide mouth jar to blend in. Other than that I use small glass jars to hold the sauce in the refrigerator.
The ingredients that you need to make this creamy honey mustard sauce are a room temperature egg, yellow mustard, whole grain mustard, honey, pepper, and extra light olive oil. You need to use extra light olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil will add a strong and unpleasant flavor.
To prepare to make this creamy honey mustard sauce start by bringing one egg to room temperature. Then gather the other ingredients that you will need. Then, place all of the ingredients in a wide mouth cup or jar.
Place an immersion blender in the jar and start blending at the bottom. Blend together the egg, mustards, honey, and pepper. Then, slowly raise the blender up and down until all oil is incorporated and a smooth sauce remains.
Pour the sauce into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Keep reading to find the full sauce recipe. If you make this recipe please let me know in the comments or on Instagram!
