Dress up your favorite sandwiches with a slathering of Brown Sugar-Pecan-Mustard Butter. With only 4 ingredients, this homemade mustard butter is quick to stir together and tastier than any store-bought version.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 6 to 8 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Cool 10 minutes. Pulse in a food processor until finely ground.

Step 2

Stir together butter and next 2 ingredients until sugar dissolves. Stir in ground pecans. Serve immediately, or chill until ready to serve. Let stand at room temperature 20 minutes before serving.

This is awesome! I put it on turkey and smoked gouda and pumpernickel sandwiches and then "panini" them on my George Foreman - outstanding! My husband says it is the best sandwich he has ever had! Put the pecan butter between the gouda and the turkey so your bread won't be soggy when it melts.

Delicious...adds just the perfect touch. It is especially delicious when the roll or ham is warm. My in-laws asked me to leave the extra after our party because they loved it so much. I encourage you to try this recipe. It is fabulous! Side note- grind your pecans finely

what a great idea for making it so easy to slather on everything for ham sliders in one combo recipe. This was very tasty and people kept going back for more!
