Jess, what numbers are you using for mustard? Granted, if a mustard is prepared
with added oil, then there is far more fat, but a good average for mustards
prepared without any added fat is:

               1 tsp:        1 cup:

Calories:        4          180
Fat:            .2 gms      10.6  gms

%CFF:           47%

It you take the spicy potato recipe, as posted, reduce the number of potatoes
in 1/2 to 4, and up the mustard to 1 full cupful (16 tablespoons! - which
wouldn't be terribly appetizing, IMHO, and I love mustard), the total recipe

Calories:  1336
Fat:        13 gms
%CFF:        8%

These numbers all come from MasterCook.
