Recipe by MaryBee11

I created this recipe to use up leftover ham. My Dutch son-in-law loves my regular mac & cheese and he LOVES this one using Dutch Gouda (we pronounce it goo-dah, but I'm told that it's actually closer to how-dah). It's really just fancy mac & cheese with vegetables. I serve it with a green salad and french bread.

  3. Add nutmeg, salt, pepper and dried mustard.
  4. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Adjust seasonings, if desired.
