Mustard Cheese Dip

Mustard is one of those condiments enjoyed in sparing amounts. It adds a nice kick to many dishes and snacks, but one would not necessarily eat it in spoonfuls. One would not, that is, except when incorporated into this dip.

This sinfully exquisite dip makes you wonder why you ever bother eating out at a sporting event. The cheddar balances out the intensity of mustard, while the mustard subtly sparks your taste buds. An ultimate ying and yang of flavors, with ingredients already available in your kitchen.

If this isn’t the perfect dip to accompany Pretzel Crisps then nothing is.first
