Now that the holidays are over, its time to get back to our regular schedule and with that comes the need for quick and easy weeknight meals. This is a great recipe for using up leftover ham and a few staples from your fridge and pantry. It isn’t the healthiest meal for New Years Resolution dieters, but pair a smaller portion with a side salad and you’ve got an easy meal.
What you’ll need:
- 1-1/2 cup instant brown rice, uncooked
- 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 soup can milk
- 1/4 cup low fat mayo
- 120g deli ham, chopped OR 2 cups leftover cooked ham, chopped
- 2 cups frozen peas
- ground pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F
Combine all ingredients except cheese in a 2-liter casserole dish, sprayed with cooking spray. Cover and bake for 20 minutes.
Top with cheese and continue to bake for another 10 minutes uncovered.
Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Deliciously creamy and full of flavour. I even froze more chopped up leftover ham to make this again in a few weeks.
