This is a dish you can make with holiday leftovers, but will continue to add to your weekly menu all year round because it’s so simple and savory.
This recipe taste like one of those terribly salty and preservative packed rice side side dish boxes that everyone secretly loves, except it’s made with simple and clean ingredients that won’t throw you off your ketogenic lifestyle.
This ham casserole is loaded with creamy cheesy perfectly cooked ham and broccoli, I am always in search of recipes for leftover ham, it seems like we always have it after our holiday meal.
Here are some major perks for this recipe:
You can prepare and assemble it ahead of time
- Easily make it as a one pan meal
- It’s a great recipe for leftover ham
- A variety of vegetables would be great here
- Your entire family will absolutely love it
Replacing cream soups in recipes:
Quite a few of my favorite casserole recipes have traditionally been made with cream soups.
Condensed soups have been a pantry staple for a hundred years, they are inexpensive and readily available, but hardly low carb friendly because of the starches and thickeners used to bind and thicken them.
There are several substitute ingredients that mimic the consistency and taste of creamed soup without the carbs.
Cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy whipping cream all do this.
CJ’S FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST:
Well I just finished off the last of this delicious and easy to make casserole. And like most casseroles it got better with time. I really enjoyed the combination of mustard, ham and swiss someone should make that into a sandwich. This recipe is also versatile, but as Sarah said it’s a great way to repurpose your holiday leftovers. We hope you and your family enjoy it!
