Honey-Mustard Sauce

Sandwiches with Honey-Mustard Sauce

Here you can see my latest addiction. Seeded rye rolls, a slice of browned ham, turkey bacon, fresh tomato from the garden, perfectly ripe avocado, a slice or two of Monterey Jack cheese and, the pièce de résistance, honey-mustard sauce.

My husband felt like having honey-mustard sauce the other day, so he looked around and came up with the recipe below. The pepperiness of the basil perfectly complements the spiciness of the garlic and mustard as well as the sweetness provided by the honey. It is, in short, perfection on a sandwich.

It's almost lunchtime. Can you guess what's on the menu?
