Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese

Rated as 3.88 out of 5 Stars

"This is a marvelously smooth mac and cheese with a bit of a bite. My family loves this. I got the idea from a recipe made on a popular cooking show, and adapted it to my own recipe and tastes. Delicious contrast if served with a 'sweet' main dish."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10 inch casserole dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook until a roux forms. Stir in the milk, salt and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is smooth and thick and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

I tried this recipe and ended up doubling the amount of Gouda and cutting the amount of noodles in half, and that was almost perfect. All in all, it was good for something unique but I wouldn...

Gouda flavor was barely present, sauce was very soupy. This would be tastier with a more aged gouda than the variety available in my grocery. I will not make this again.
