    So I have a friend who is living with me and she is allergic to mustard seed so she can’t have like mayo mustard some BBQ Sauces etc. This recipe looks amazingly yummy but I was wondering if I would be able to make this recipe without the Dijon mustard and still taste good or if there’s something else I could use that may taste the same but not have mustard seed in it possibly!
