It is definitely backyard BBQ season! Bertman Ball Park Mustard is always on the table at our BBQs to top burgers, hot dogs, and brats. But at our recent dinner with Bertman, we were encouraged to “think outside the bun” in using Bertman products.
So, this past weekend, I decided to use Bertman Original Ball Park Mustard in a shell salad side dish. It was the perfect ingredient to add some tang and incorporate a BBQ favorite in a new way.
This recipe is quick, easy, and can be made ahead (it even tastes great reheated).
Here’s the recipe, in case you want to give it a try for yourself.
Bertman and Bacon Shell Salad
2 pounds large shells, cooked and drained
1 1/2 pounds bacon
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups vinegar
3 tablespoons Bertman Original Ball Park Mustard
1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup parsley
Cut bacon and onion into small pieces.
Fry together and drain.
Mix sugar, vinegar, and 1/2 cup of water. Add to bacon and onion mixture and simmer until sugar dissolves.
Add cornstarch and water to thicken.
Mix with shells. Add parsley.
So you can think outside the bun for yourself, I have a Bertman prize pack to give away, with a bottle of Bertman Original Ball Park Mustard, Dortmunder Beer Mustard, and Bermtan Horseradish Sauce.
