I looked up a basic recipe for mac and cheese to make sure that I got that general measurements right. The Pioneer Woman is one of my go-to resources for recipes. And she didn't fail me this time! I used her Macaroni & Cheese recipe as my guide and made a smoked gouda version. I cut down on the dry mustard because I figured that the smoky flavor of the cheese would add a lot of flavor. I also substituted cream cheese for the egg because I thought it would make it a little creamier while still helping to bind the drier cheeses. It turned out creamy and very flavorful. I will definitely be making this again!
