I mixed an egg with the mustard sauce and the crumbs stuck fine, but I could not taste the mustard.

whoa! very nice flavor!! I might need to agree with another poster who said a small amount of flour is necessary. dry-wet-dry! I added egg to the dijonaisse and cooked in olive oil and butter and it turned out excellent. cook until CRISP!!
