I usually make mine with two kinds of cheeses, a cheddar base (sometimes
cojack) and a white cheese (swiss or mozzarella), with mustard. I
alternate between comfort mustard (French's yellow) and the tasty Jack
Daniel's dijon type. And on a tasty dill rye bread, lovely. Hmmm, I know
what I'm having for lunch (G).
