cooked ham, cut into one inch cubes
1 (10 ounce) can
cream of celery soup, undiluted
1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 cups
1 (15 ounce) can
green beans, drained
Excellent way to use leftover ham. I had to substitute cream of mushroom soup for the cream of celery, and I added 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce. Will definitely make this again.
Kind of weird but the flavors all work very well together. WARNING: Don't be an idiot like me - either use instant (I never have that on hand) or COOK the rice a little first. You'd think that was fairly basic but the minute I put it together I thought, "oh, that's not good." And cooked it anyway. The rice was mostly crunchy. But the rest was yummy.
I'll do it again.
And it's a great way to use up leftovers!!
I made this recipe as a "Chopped" challenge. My husband (at my request) picked surprise ingredients and I had to figure out how to use my "basket" of ingredients to make supper! What fun. We have done this a few times and it is a hoot. Anyway, tonight he brought home two ham steaks, fresh green beans and an Uncle Ben's sun-dried tomato rice mix. I used these along with cream of mushroom soup and shreded jack cheese. Per another reviewer's advice, I partially cooked the rice mix first and steamed the green beans. We loved it!!! Nice easy weeknight meal, and a great Chopped challenge!
We thought the flavor was very satisfying and a great way to use leftover ham. We used the suggestion of using 2 cans of beans and liked it, but thought that an additional can of cream of celery soup would have made the dish more moist (balancing out the amount of rice), so we'll do that next time. We will make it again!
Second time around:
We preferred this version over my first. Changes from originally posted recipe: 2 cans green beans (drained), 1 can cream of celery soup AND 1 can cream of chicken soup (undiluted), 3/4 cup milk, 1 tbls Worcestershire. I baked it in a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. This seems to be a nice balance of flavors and moisture. It made two meals for the two of us. Good warm meal on a cold evening.
This was pretty darned good. My husband just had seconds ! As far as quick casseroles go, this one was better than most. I had to use grated cheddar instead of American cheese, which was very good. Next time, I will use 2 cans of green beans to give this dish a slightly healthier balance, but I must admit it was very satisfying. It is also a great way to use leftover ham. I'll make this dish again and may even try macaroni instead of rice, just to see what happens.
This was very easy and good. My whole family liked it. However,it is not as good the next day-best served hot out of the oven.
Great Recipe!! Hubby loved it too! The only thing I changed was the cheese. I used cheddar instead of white american.
Will definitly make it again!!
It's not bad -- good for using up my leftovers from Thanksgiving (we had ham instead of turkey). I used the leftover ham, fresh green beans, and some rolls and it came out pretty good. Oh, didn't have the cream of celery, so used cream of mushroom. I really liked the topping, but felt there was too much rice. I think if I make it again, I'd use less rice. Give it a try - it's good!
