When I started on this recipe I was going to make a traditional creamy peas. They were good, but the mustard and tarragon makes this really special.
Regular cheddar cheese is about 9 grams of fat per ounce. These days the lower fat versions are easy to find and full of flavor. Look for cheeses in the range of 4 to 6 grams per ounce.
Kraft produces a good sharp cheddar that is 6 grams per ounce that is marketed under the Cracker Barrel name. It is labeled "made with 2% milk, Reduced Fat." Jarlesburg brand is a very good quality Swiss cheese, which has about 6 grams of fat per ounce. Reduced Fat Cheeses »
