3 cups frozen broccoli
1 cup ham cubes
1/2 can mushrooms (optional, but highly recommended)
1 sliced scallion (adds an extra layer of flavor)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper (Moderate amount)
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and get ready for a delicious casserole.
Start by placing the frozen broccoli in a greased baking dish. This will serve as a nutritious and colorful base for your casserole.
Next, place the ham cubes on top of the broccoli. The ham brings a savory and hearty element to this dish.
Now, it’s time to turn things around! To add depth of flavor, sprinkle the ham with a layer of sliced mushrooms and green onions. This addition will make your casserole even more appetizing.
Next comes a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese. Cheese creates a gooey and irresistible topping.
In another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Carefully pour the egg mixture over the layers in the baking dish. The eggs will act as a glue to hold everything together.
Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top is golden brown.
Once done, remove the casserole from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
Slice, serve, taste! This Cheesy Ham Broccoli Casserole is not only delicious, but it’s also a great way to use up leftover ham.
Enjoy a sumptuous meal and have a spooky Halloween! 🎃🧡🍖🥦🥚
