ham and broccoli casserole

An easy and delicious week-day meal, great for busy days. So good, that Hubby has even asked for it for birthday suppers :-)

Everything can be prepared ahead of time, and assembled at the last minute (or even assemble in the morning and put in the fridge until dinner time).

Amounts are very flexible, and customizable for your family size.

Ingredients:

~ a slice or two of cooked, cubed ham
~ a cup or two of cubed cheddar (we use old)
~ a cup or two of broccoli florets (either defrosted frozen or fresh- steam slightly if desired, but we don't)
~ 2-4 cups of cooked brown rice
~ 1/2 to 1 full recipe of homemade condensed mushroom soup

Directions:

~ combine all ingredients in a casserole large enough to accommodate the amount your are preparing

~ sprinkle the top with dried parsley and pepper if desired

~ bake in a 350* oven until warmed through (about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, depending on amounts)
