Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces cheddar, grated
  • 3 ounces Gruyere, grated

Instructions

  1. Add the heavy cream, cream cheese, and butter to a medium sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the butter and cream cheese have melted.
  2. Whisk in the ground mustard and pepper.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cheddar and Gruyere until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Serve immediately as the sauce will thicken as it cools.

If your cheese sauce is too thick or too thin for your preferences, add additional cheese to thicken or additional cream to thin.
