DIRECTIONS

  • Drain green beans WELL. (I've used reg.cut & French style beans successfully, too).
  • Take each ham slice and place approximately 2 ozs.of green beans toward one end of ham.
  • Sprinkle the beans lightly with salt and black pepper.
  • OPTIONAL: Sprinkle beans lightly with onion and/or garlic powders if you like extra flavor. Original recipe didn't call for extra seasoning.
  • Roll up the ham slice where the green beans are tucked in with a 1 inch overlap of ham.
  • I run a toothpick through the middle width to hold intact & for easier transportation to plate.
  • Arrange ham rolls in an 8x8 or 9x9 casserole dish.
  • PREHEAT OVEN to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium pot, melt butter on medium-high.
  • Add Flour one tablespoon at a time, stir constantly for 2-3 minutes to remove pasty taste.
  • Add one cup of Milk at a time to form the sauce, dissolving the flour mixture well. Continue cooking, stirring frequently until the sauce begins to thicken somewhat, about 3-4 minutes. TURN HEAT DOWN to medium low.
  • Slowly add cheese 1 cup at at time and stir until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. (I usually add 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper). Optional: Leftover green beans can be added to the cheese sauce at this time.
  • Slowly pour the cheese Sauce over the Ham Rolls and lightly sprinkle top of rolls with Paprika for color.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until bubbly and slightly browned on top.
  • Serve over rice, spooning extra cheese sauce over ham and rice. ENJOY!
