You tell us what the differences are between your recipe and McDonald's. You are all gonna NEED this recipe too, because MickeyD's has quit serving Hot Mustard Sauce all together. I have confirmed it with corporate.

I love McDonalds hot mustard too and although I haven't tried this recipe but after reading it I knew it wouldn't totally work. I taste horseradish in their sauce. That is probably where the heat comes from.
If play around with it you may figure it out. If you mix dijon and a little honey you can make a really good sauce also.

This is an OK mustard sauce but it is NO WHERE CLOSE to tasting like the stuff at Mcdonalds.

I LOVE McDonalds Hot Mustard Sauce. I was really excited to find this recipe and ran out to get the ingredients. I just tried the sauce and it was no where near McDonalds Sauce. I did find another recipe online as well, will try that one next. It looks more like the original ingredients listed on McDonalds website.

REVIEW: 2 star recipe rating
I'm a really big fan of McDonalds Hot Mustard, not just with their McNuggets, but I try to get some extra for when I make chicken tenders and other things at home. However the folks at Mickey D's can be pretty forgetful and often don't put it in my bag when I ask, so I was excited to see this recipe. After trying a few batches I was disappointed though. This is a pretty good mustard recipe, but it doesn't taste like the kind they give you at McDonalds. I've tried messing with the ingredient amounts, but still nothing like the real thing.
