Brooke's Mustard Dip

1 approximately quart

This recipe was published in " Entertaining," in 1982 -- and Martha has been making it ever since! It's named for a woman who worked with Martha in her catering days. It tastes great on Angel Biscuits along with a slice or two of country ham. Or try it on Martha's Ham and Cheese Sandwich.


  • ½ cup dry mustard

  • ¾ cup distilled white vinegar

  • ½ cup white wine or dry vermouth

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ tablespoon salt


  1. Mix mustard, vinegar, and wine in a porcelain or stainless steel bowl.

  2. Cover and soak overnight.

  3. Beat eggs with sugar and salt until very light and foamy. Add mustard mixture, and cook in a double boiler (or in a stainless bowl over a pot of simmering water) until thick, approximately 1 hour, whisking occasionally.

  4. Cool and refrigerate until ready to use.


For a more complex flavor, use 1/4 cup of white wine and 1/4 cup vermouth instead of one or the other.
