Creamy Dijon Mustard Sauce with Swiss Cheese

This creamy Mustard Sauce recipe is fantastic with grilled pork, chicken and fish

The picture below shows the sauce over a grilled chicken breast.

The Swiss Cheese and grainy Dijon mustard are perfect partners and work together giving a slightly salty-spicy flavor.

If you can't find Swiss Cheese try one of the packaged Italian blends of grated cheese instead.

how to make mustard sauce

Step 1:
Combine the white wine and tarragon in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Allow to gently simmer until reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 5 minutes after it comes to a simmer.

Pour in the whipping cream and let it return to a simmer.

Allow to simmer gently until it lightly thickens and reduces to about 1 1/2 cups, about 10 minutes after it comes to a simmer.

Watch the cream as it simmers and don't allow it to boil or bubble over.

If you want the sauce a little thicker just add a little more cheese at a time until you get the consistency you want.

Keep warm until ready to serve.
