  1. What about the poor, lonely scallions? Looking longingly on as their companions get to go to a party without them… aww…

    Just kidding, they’re obviously a garnish, it was just omitted from the steps and was driving me nuts.

    My buddy Florian likes to make almost this exact same recipe, only when he adds the scallion or chive garnish, he likes to drizzle a very small amount of this marjoram/thyme mustard he won’t tell me anything about. It’s very thin, and has a very sharp, distinctive flavor, so a little goes a long way. It comes in a little rust-colored ceramic pot with no logo. He guards its identity like a mother bear protecting her cubs. If anyone has any leads, I would kill for this stuff! Or, at least, kill a wurst or two with this on my table.

    • HA! Okay, I fixed the recipe. Poor, sad, abandoned scallions 🙁
      That mustard sounds amazing by the way. I’ll keep an eye out for it 😉
