Ham & Swiss Casserole

 

Ingredients:
  • 2-3 cups chopped leftover ham
  • 6-7 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 package (10 or 16 oz.)  frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon (or less) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • dash pepper
  • 1 cup milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Partially cook the broccoli (about 3 minutes in the microwave). Allow it to drain in a colander while preparing the rest of the ingredients. (This keeps the casserole from being watery.)
  3. Spread the chopped ham on the bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish.
  4. In a small saucepan, cook the onion in the butter until tender. Add in the flour, salt, basil, and pepper and stir until combined.
  5. Slowly stir in the milk and cook until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  6. Layer the drained broccoli over the ham and top with cheese slices. Pour the sauce over top.
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes. Serves 6.
