WAY too strong on the mustard. 3 tsp really would do it. I changed down the mustard to 3 tsp and it was absolutely delicious - all gone and bowl scraped.

Really nice but strong on the mustard, I'll halve the amount next time I make it. Also will chop the pots before cooking as seems easier to me! Def recommend though!
