Leftover Ham Recipe

Make a comfort food casserole using this leftover ham recipe.

You need a good leftover ham recipe to use up the remainder of that delicious piece of meat. While it was really good, and enjoyed by many, your family will not want it again unless you can disguise it as another dish. So, when your family asks - "What's for dinner tonight?" Simply say a casserole – no need to say you are using a leftover ham recipe.

Our best buys in meats are usually found when we purchase a large piece, cook it, and make many meals from it. Unfortunately, when we do this to save money and time, we need multiple recipes to use the meat. Being able to serve the meat in different ways will eliminate everyone tiring of it before it is all gone. So, it is nice when we can find ways to disguise it, as you can with this leftover ham recipe.

Surprise your family with a new dish; use this leftover ham recipe to make a quick and easy comfort food casserole for dinner tonight. Simply add a fresh salad or fruit, an easy dessert, and dinner is ready. Use this leftover ham recipe the next time you need a covered dish for a group dinner - your dish will come home clean. (Remember to carry a copy of this leftover ham recipe with you, since everyone will want it.)

Gather the ingredients to make this leftover ham recipe:

2 cups uncooked Barilla Whole Grain Penne Pasta

1 tbsp. butter

1/2 cup onion, chopped

2 cups cooked meat, chopped

1 can green beans, drained

1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup (10 ounce size)

1/2 cup milk

1 3/4 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese (2% milk)

1 cup French's French Fried Onions

Let's cook!

Cook the whole grain pasta according to the directions on the box for "al dente" pasta.

Melt the butter in a large stovetop to oven casserole pan or dish. Stir in the chopped onions, and cook them over low heat until they are translucent.

Add the chopped meat to the onions in the pan, and leave it on a low heat while adding in the remainder of the ingredients.

Stir in the green beans, which have been drained.

Blend in the can of cream of mushroom soup and 1/2 cup of milk.

Fold in the cooked pasta. And then fold in 1 1/4 cups of the shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake the casserole in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 minutes or until hot.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and the French's French Fried Onions on top of the casserole, and return it to the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.

This is a great way to use leftovers. We slice the extra ham up and freeze and use it as ham steaksThanks for sharing this

Thanks for shopping by, reading, and commenting on my leftover ham recipe. Freezing extra ham is a good idea, but I always forget what I have in the freezer. I read somewhere to attach at note to the freezer, post additions, and subtraction on it. I need to try that.

I made this last night. It was very delicious, however I think it needs a little salt and pepper added to it (to taste of course). I will definitely make this again with leftover ham from Thanksgiving or Christmas this year.
