H is for Ham...

   Today for H, I pulled out another of my mother's casseroles. This one has ham, rice, cheese ... whats not to love. Okay, I admit it I love cheese.

Ham and Rice Casserole


½ c     uncooked reg. Rice
1 lg.   Onion, chopped
1 lg.   Green pepper, chopped
3 Tbs  melted margarine
1 (10 ¾ oz) can  Tomato Soup
1 c      water
1 (6oz) roll sharp Pasteurized cheese food, cubed
½ lb    ham, chopped coarsely
½ tsp   black pepper
½ tsp   salt


  Cook rice according to package directions. Set aside.
   Saute onion and green pepper in margarine until tender.
   Combine remaining ingredients with rice and sautéed vegetables.  Spoon mixture into greased 3 quart casserole dish.  Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

   If you have a rice cooker like this one (Zojirushi Nonstick Electric Rice Cooker), you can easily make the rice ahead of time for this recipe.
