  1. I made this last night and it was very tasty. Even my picky eater liked it! I followed the recipe almost exactly. I did increase the amount of ham called for as I have a LOT of leftover ham from Easter. And I used those fried onions that come in a can instead of bread crumbs as the topping. They were a nice touch. I would comment on the lack of instructions in the directions. I did not see how long to cook nor did I ever see when to add the green beans. Since everything going into it was already cooked I figured the time was not critical - just get it hot. I did it at 350° for around 20 minutes and then added the onion topping for another 5 minutes. Very EZ recipe and a nice way to use up a good bit of ham. Most ham casseroles seem to have noodles so the rice was a pleasant change. Thanks for sharing.
  2. This a great dish to make with extra ham. Even my husband liked it! Used frozen peas in place of green beans, omitted bread crumbs and instead topped with additional shredded cheese for last 10 min.
  3. This was a very good recipe and it was so easy to use up our leftover Easter ham! The only thing that I will do differently next time is to cut the breadcrumbs in half or leave them out all together. They seemed to be a little overpowering. Thanks for a great leftover recipe Salzer! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Spring 2013.
  4. Made this for dinner last night with leftovers from Christmas dinner. This was delicious! I only made one recipe change-up. I had green beans w/ bacon leftover too, so I just threw that in instead of canned green beans. Definitely a keeper.
