Excellent with such a simple flavor yet so good. You could add all kinds of different things to these delicious little nuggets. We used a sweet and sour sauce to dip them in but I think hot mustard or any other dipping sauce would only add to the flavors. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014
