McDonald’s copycat hot mustard recipe


I swore that if McDonald’s ever stopped carrying hot mustard sauce, I would have to run off and live in a cave and cry because I use fries like small spoons to scoop it into my mouth as quickly as possible.
Well, apparently that day has come. Since I don’t have any caves nearby and it is so cold in Ohio right now, I had to come up with another option.
I scoured the web and found this highly rated copycat recipe from Top Secret Recipes.

This is our only hope, fellow hot mustard lovers.


1/2 cup water
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons ground dried mustard
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon salt
10-14 drops habanero hot sauce


1. Combine all ingredients in a small uncovered saucepan. Whisk until smooth.

2. Turn heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, stirring often. Sauce should thicken in 2 to 3 minutes after it begins to boil. Remove sauce from heat and chill in refrigerator in a covered container.

Makes 1 cup.

Thank you, Top Secret Recipes, for keeping my family from living in a cave of tears.
