(Family Features) - Kitchens across the country rely on tried and true favorites to keep hungry families happy. In the rush to keep mouths full, flavor sometimes gets lost. Easily turn these dinnertime standbys into prime time players. From burgers to hot dogs and sandwiches to party-ready dips, turn up the volume in your cupboard and you'll never miss flavor again.
By stocking your cupboard with simple ingredients that carry big flavors, it's never been easier to add some flare to your favorite meals. Here are a few recipes that are sure to bring back the power to your pantry.
Accentuate the flavor in Beef Franks with sweet pickle relish and a touch of Grey Poupon Hearty Spicy Brown mustard. The mustard's finely diced yellow onions add a distinctive taste, elevating these dogs and making barbecue season a reason to entertain. Or kick start that at-home meal with All Around Dip, featuring Harvest Coarse Ground Mustard crafted with whole mustard seeds. This event favorite - paired with fresh veggies from your favorite farmer's market - will provide all the flavor you need to get the party started. Finally, replace that dry turkey sandwich with a revamped Turkey Ciabatta. The crunch of warm bacon mixed with the robust flavors of fresh avocado and classic Dijon mustard will take this lunchtime favorite from dull to delicious in five minutes flat.
Take your burger to the next level. President Obama sparked a national debate, later dubbed "Dijon-gate," when he chose spicy Dijon mustard to top off his burger. Grey Poupon urged the president to issue a "pardon" to all those who exercise their freedom of good taste.
