This simple butter is excellent served atop grilled foods for which straight mustard would be too strong. Mustard butter can be prepared with smooth Dijon mustard or whole-grain Meaux-style mustard. Traditional recipes call for 2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 milliliters) mustard per 8 ounces (250 grams) butter, but more can be added according to taste.
