Food on Fridays with Ann
Note: For those hunting down post-Thanksgiving leftover ideas, please consider the Turkey Tetrazzini recipe that I make every year on Saturday or Sunday.
A couple of weeks ago, I ordered fries at a nice restaurant. The fries were served with a sauce the restaurant called dijonnaise.
I’ve since spotted some recipes online for something called Dijonnaise sauce, but I’ve not bothered with anything so complicated; also, I’ve seen some jars in the grocery labeled “Dijonnaise,” but I’ve passed them by. Instead, I’ve been making small amounts of a dip that tastes similar by simply mixing a blob of mayonnaise with some Dijon mustard.
If you’re tired of ketchup with fries and want to mix things up a bit, give it a try. Spoon out about 1/8 cup mayonnaise and then stir in some Dijon a little at a time, tasting to decide how much of a “kick” you like.
For the best taste, I recommend you use Dijon mustard instead of yellow American mustard.

I never understood how delicious mayonnaise could be on French fries until I tried it once in a restaurant…and then I tried Dijonnaise and was completely hooked! I do love Dijon mustard in so many things; it has a fabulous flavour. I use it in cooking a lot. This week I have shared an Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Cake. Thank you for hosting, and I hope you and your family enjoyed a very Happy Thanksgiving!
This Dijonnaise idea was new to me! My husband grew up in Belgium, so we visited several times and I love how many different sauces they serve with frites (fries). I’m trying to remember my favorites: Andalouse sauce and another one that escapes me at the moment.
Sometimes I just mix a little American ketchup with mayonnaise, too, for something a little different.

Make a small amount and see what you think!
