Post by pstarkoski on Mon Oct 18, 2010 3:00 am


We are having this for dinner tomorrow night....I haven't made this in a long, long time but I have some leftover ham and thought of this recipe. It is from my 1982 Southern Living Annual Recipes cookbook....and that is old!! The recipe is so old that I couldn't even find it on the Southern Living I dug out my book (thankfully it was 1982 because I have the annual recipes cookbooks from 1982 to 2000!! So I started with the first book to look for it........sooooooo....I actually typed this up for you guys!

It is a really yummy recipe, but I will tell you it takes about all of the pots you own to make it, but so worth it!!




Golden Ham Casserole

2 cups cubed potatoes

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup chopped celery

2 cups cubed ham

2 TBSP chopped green pepper

2 tsp. chopped onion

1/4 cup plus 3 TBSP butter or margarine, divided

3 TBSP all-purpose flour

1-1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs

Cook potatoes, carrots and celery in a small amount of boiling unsalted water until crisp-tender; drain and set aside.

Saute ham, green pepper and onion in 3 TBSP butter in a medium skillet until ham is golden brown. Place ham mixture and cooked vegetables in a deep, greased 2-qt. casserole.

Melt 1/4 butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper; cook over low heat until cheese melts and mixture is slightly thickened.

Pour cheese sauce over ham and vegetables; sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes.

Yield: 4 to 5 servings.
