This is a simple five minute recipe that goes well with an assortment of foods. Cheddar Mustard Dipping Sauce traditionally pairs with pretzels but it compliments many dishes well. You can spruce up chicken wings, raw vegetables (cauliflower in particular), apples, or put it on your favorite sandwich. This is definitely a favorite at our house!
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1 tbsp brown mustard
1-1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
We begin by making a roux which is flour mixed with a fat and is used to thicken sauces. Place the butter into a small saucepan and melt over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for about a minute. Add the milk and continue stirring. When the milk starts to bubble add mustard and stir. Add the cheese to the pot and keep stirring. Once it is uniform, remove from heat and serve.
The type of cheddar you use can make a pretty large different in taste. I prefer sharp cheddar as it seems to stand up to the mustard better. Mild cheddar in my experience gets completely overshadowed by the mustard.
Pairs great with our Soft Pretzel Bites! Click HERE for the recipe!
