I use just a samll amount of thedry mustard, I prefer Dejon. This is good orver a small can of Icy cold mandarin oranges, along with Avocado slices, The kids smack their lips over this one. How about potatoes with grated onion, along whit thin sliced red potatoes, salt and pepper. layer potatoes in casserrole dish that you've buttered or sprayed with pam, cover with chichen broth, addsome Monterey Jack cheese thin sliced pour over a little melted butter then back til soft in a 325 oven. You can scoo[ out the center of tomatoes and then fill with with bread cubes you make using day old bread cut into small cubes, dot with butter, tiny sauteed onion bits and some bacon bits. My guys love bacon and they also love tiny cherry tomatoes, sauteed then add salt, and cream let the cream come to a boil amd add butter and bread crumbs serve right away. A slice of crumbled bacon over the top should make them go emmmmm. Hope this helps If I can do more give a yell.
Seriously sounds yummy!!! They are awesome with their fruits and potatoes.... I will definitely be trying some of these ideas!!! My daughter as of right now eats anything!!!!

I don't find it grainy...you might not have cooked it long enough.
