In saucepan, combine sugar, flour, mustard and salt; beat in egg.
Gradually stir in milk and vinegar until smooth.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until mixture comes to boil.
Stir in butter; cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbly and thickened.
Let cool at room temperature for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent skin from forming.
