Got pretzels? Need Cheese? Or Mustard?
I got yo back!!!
The other day I found “homemade” pretzel rolls in the bakery section at my local grocer. They were beautiful and smelled delicious and I thought to myself “Hey self! These pretzels look delicious! You should get them and then go home and make a delicious cheese fondue to go with them! Or maybe a mustard sauce! Ooooh yummm…”
And then inspiration struck when I wondered why not combine the two? Boom!!! MUSTARD CHEESE DIP!
Now I’m a bit of a hot mess so obviously I don’t mind eating this whole dip by myself. But… it is football season. So once I figured out how fantastic this combination is, then I decided to keep the ingredients on hand for all the upcoming football food nights with friends.
Ingredients in Mustard Cheese Dip
Making this dip is simple. What I really think is important is the ingredients you use. A note (or two, or three)…
- Mustard. I’m just gonna put this out there because it’s absolute truth: not all mustards are created equal. I’m a big fan of Colman’s Mustard because it adds a punch of heat to my favorite recipes. (Besides in dips and sauces, I also use it to rub down ribs and whole chickens before seasoning and grilling or roasting— SOOO GOOD Y’ALL!)
- Cheese. In this recipe I call for Gruyere cheese. It’s a little bit more expensive, but the flavor it gives off is absolute heaven.
- Thyme. I don’t have time to tell you all the benefits of thyme. HAHAHA! Dad jokes, I’m full of them. But seriously y’all, if you haven’t planted thyme in your garden then it’s thyme you did. The flavor is subtle, but it pairs perfectly with the cheese and mustard in this recipe.
Now dear reader, this mustard cheese dip was created for pretzels, but on further testing I’ve realized it works well with so much more than that. It’s just so good. SO if you don’t have pretzels on hand, no worries! Try one of these other options:
- Crusty bread
- French Fries
- Sweet Potato Fries
- Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Brussels Sprouts
- Chunks of Steak
- Atop chicken breasts
Yeah, the possibilities are actually endless. Let me know what you and your football friends (or other friends or just yourself) eat and love it with!
Enough talk, let’s eat!
