Hi Jessica;
        Yes, mustard probably has more fat than most people expect.  When
buying Dijon, look at the breakdown on the label, or if you're buying name
brands opt for Grey Poupon over French's... Grey Poupon has 1 gram of fat
per tablespoon, while French's has 3.  However, overall this recipe has
1118.5 calories and 4.775 grams of fat, meaning it clocks in at an amazingly
low 3.8% cff.
