The Best Mustard for Your Kosher Franks

Now that you know which kosher frankfurter you’re grilling up this weekend, you’re going to need some mustard! Sorry, but a dog without mustard is just naked if you ask us. So, we checked in with the queen of mustard collectors (and Jew and the Carrot contributor) Molly Yeh. At recent count, Yeh had about 80 varieties of mustard in her Brooklyn apartment. “Staring at mustard sections in grocery stores is wonderfully relaxing,” she told us with all seriousness recently. Check out her recommendations below for the perfect mustard to top your dog. Happy barbequing!

Mustard Girl Sweet N Fancy Yellow Mustard: French’s? Don’t even. Mustard Girl’s mustard is on an entirely different level. It’s sweet and less acidic than French’s and it’s good enough to eat with a spoon. If honey mustard is your style, the Mustard Girl Sweet N Spicy Honey is equally as charming.

My Friend’s Mustard Jalapeno IPA: Pickled jalapenos and whole mustard seeds make for a refreshing mixture that add textural variety to a hot dog. Made in Brooklyn, this mustard uses Sixpoint’s Bengali Tiger IPA.

Amora Dijon: This is one tough, ass-kicking mustard. No wimps allowed. Just strong, cocky (no pun) hot dog lovers who can take the wildly intense heat of this perfect Dijon. People wearing eye makeup need not apply, enough of this stuff will make your eyes water like a baby.

Beaver Coney Island Hot Dog Mustard: With pickles, onions, and tomatoes already mixed in, this mustard is a one stop shop for all of your hot dog table needs.
