This post was brought to you by the makers of French’s Sweet Yellow Mustard and Spicy Yellow Mustard. I received compensation to write this post through the Sweet and Spicy Influencer Program…all opinions expressed are my own.

Thrilled to share these fun party meatballs with you today!  I’ve partnered with French’s Mustard to bring you a new appetizer that will be the hit of the party.  Flavorful bite size meatballs with a mustard cream sauce that pops with sweet and spicy notes.

So excited to share these two new mustard flavors with you today!  French’s Spicy Mustard with Cayenne Pepper and French’s Sweet Mustard with Brown Sugar.  The flavor possibilities are endless, perfect for something sweet, spicy or a little of both!  I love that French’s isn’t just for hotdogs and hamburgers, its perfect for bringing amazing flavor to everyday cooking such as my meatballs and mustard cream sauce.

Crafted with only simple, quality ingredients, including stone-ground #1 mustard seed, French’s Classic Mustard has been America’s best-loved mustard for more than 100 years.
