Cheesy Leftover Ham Casserole

Recipe by PSU Lioness
READY IN: 40mins


  • 2
    cups cooked rice (I used the 10 minute Success Boil-in-Bag whole grain rice)
  • 1 -2
    cup cooked ham, depending on how much you had leftover (the one that I used was a spiral sliced honey ham)
  • 1
    (10 ounce) can broccoli cheddar cheese soup, condensed
  • 34 - 1
    cup milk
  • 14
  • 12
    cup French-fried onions
  • 1
    (15 ounce) can peas
  • 12
    cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 14
    cup French-fried onions
  • 12
    cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 14
    cup crouton, finely crushed (measured AFTER the croutons have been crushed)


  • Cook rice according to package directions.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Pull or dice ham into small pieces.
  • Place rice in a 13x9" baking dish and top with ham and stir to combine. Use as much or as little ham as you would like. I used almost 2 cups because I had a lot leftover from Christmas dinner.
  • In a large bowl, mix broccoli cheddar soup, milk and sour cream. Start with 3/4 c milk and add more if you would like it a little runnier. I prefer my soup base a little thicker.
  • Stir 1/2 c french fried onions, peas and 1/2 c cheddar cheese into the soup mixture.
  • When combined, pour the soup mixture over the rice/ham mixture and stir well, but gently, to combine.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 c cheddar cheese over the rice/soup mixture.
  • Top this with 1/4 c (or more) french fried onions.
  • In a plastic bag, crush croutons. It took about 1/4 bag of croutons to get 1/4 cup of crushed croutons (and I used the cheesy garlic flavor).
  • Sprinkle crushed croutons over top of all.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes or until the edges start to get bubbly and it is heated through.
