Easy Leftover Ham Casserole Recipe

I make this recipe every single time we have leftover ham. I make one to eat, and at least one to freeze. Recently I have begun to double the recipe, add an extra cream of mushroom soup, and then freeze in smaller containers (I will divide a double recipe into three containers). It is just Hubby and me. I could probably do four containers, but I am worried about burning the top.

In any event, it freezes very well. You do not bake before freezing. If you want to put the breadcrumbs on and then freeze you can (I usually do), or if you put them on before cooking when removed from the freezer, that is fine too. Why do I freeze with breadcrumbs on? I do not defrost. I simply pop it in a preheated oven and allow it to cook through until hot and bubbly.

This is truly easy to make and comes together quickly. The “hardest” part is dicing up the ham (that is what Hubby is for!!) and remembering to cook some rice ahead of time (another good use of a leftover).

You can use sticky rice if you like, but if you do the casserole is going to end up, hmmm … sticky. (I love sticky rice!)

  1. We aren’t pea eaters, so first we substituted broccoli. It is wonderful! Left over quinoa works instead of the rice too.

  2. Going to try this tomorrow.

  3. Sounds delicious!! Just need some ham so I can try it! 🙂

  4. Just found this recipe and have definitely added it to my rotation! I’m not that big on peas and thought of substituting corn. Tried baby sweet peas and they were actually very good! Really added to the taste.
