Before I share the recipe with you that I made, I wanted to show how easy clean up was after we were done eating this delicious dish. I had a mess leftover in the casserole dish. But, no worries as I had a Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth on hand to help me clean up this mess. I used it with a little hot water and soap and got the dried up gunk right off of it! Its scrubbing power makes cleaning easy!
This is what the casserole dish looked like after I was done, it is so clean!
Gouda Mac and Cheese
Now I will share with you how to make this delicious Gouda Mac and Cheese.
The ingredients for this mac and cheese are pretty simple and you should have most of them around the house already.
Start boiling the noodles. Then you'll need to melt your butter and add the seasonings to it.
Stir in the flour until it forms a thick paste. Pour in the milk and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer.
Now, the fun part... you get to layer all of the cheeses! First, spray your square casserole dish. Add the noodles, sauce, American cheese, shredded cheese and gouda cheese. Repeat one more time. Now, it is ready for the oven! See the full directions below.
Gouda Mac and Cheese
Nonstick cooking spray
3 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon salt/pepper
8 oz elbow macaroni
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
3 cups milk
2 oz gouda cheese, shredded
8 slices of American cheese
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit

3. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in salt, pepper and mustard powder. Then, stir in flour to form a paste. Stir in milk and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes.
4. Spray your casserole dish and place half of the noodles on bottom. Pour half of sauce on top. Layer with 4 slices of American cheese, half of the cheddar cheese and gouda cheese. Repeat. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cover and bake an additional 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
5 Tips to Have the Cleanest Sink You've EVER Had!
1. Keep a jar of liquid dish soap on your sink.
2. Pour the liquid soap all over your sink.
3. Use your Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth to scrub all of the dirt and grime off your sink.
4. Use the other side of the Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth to dry off your sink until it shines!
5. Decorate your sink with some fresh flowers and keep a Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth nearby for the next time you need to do a deep clean. I also keep the liquid dish soap in a little glass jar, it looks nice in the kitchen and I don't have to dig under the sink to find it.
