Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and put a large pot of salted water on to boil.

Add the macaroni to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain well.

Meanwhile, in a 4-quart pot, melt 2 sticks of the butter over low heat and then add the flour, mustard powder, seasoned salt, salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, stirring with a whisk. Add the milk a little at a time, whisking, and cook until thickened and smooth, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the American and gouda cheeses along with 4 cups of the Cheddar until melted and thoroughly combined. Add the cooked macaroni and stir well.

Pour the macaroni mixture into a 3-quart baking dish and dot with the remaining 1/2 stick butter. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup Cheddar on top, then sprinkle with the smoked paprika. Bake until the cheese is browned on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot.

    I did not like the macaroni because of the gouda and American cheese. I had never tasted gouda cheese until I made this macaroni. I'm not a fan of gouda and American cheese being used in macaroni. Will never make it again.

    I have cooked this Mac & Cheese a total of 2 times for my family! Everyone loves this receipe and it is easy to follow. If you have a small family, you may want to reduce the elbow macaroni because it produces so much! I used two packages of shredded velveeta cheese as my american cheese (Purchased it from Walmart). The Gouda cheese really brings out the flavor in this mac & cheese. Overall this is one of the best homemade mac & cheese that I have ever made! Enjoy!
