Broccoli and Ham Bake

March 10, 2011

A tasty and fast meal for a busy weeknight.  Easy enough to put together in the morning too or the evening before.  You know you have those nights you just want to eat “right now” but instead of ordering some food or getting take-out this is a healthy alternate, will taste much better and probably take less time than waiting for what you may have ordered.  Serve with a simple green salad and dinner is ready.

 Broccoli and Ham Bake

Ingredients

  • 1 Pkg. Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 1 lb. Ham Steak (cut in bite size pieces
  • 2 T. Unsalted Butter
  • 2 T. Flour
  • 1 C. Milk
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 2 T. Unsalted Butter (melted)
  • 1/4 C. Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 C. Coarse Bread Crumbs

Preparation

  1. Saute the florets just to defrost and drain thoroughly; set aside
  2. Butter lightly a 9×9 baking dish; add the ham and broccoli and toss
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; stir in flour and blend for 2 minutes (do not brown)
  5. Gradually add the milk; cook over low heat and stir constantly (sauce will begin to thicken) season with salt and pepper *
  6. Pour over the ham and broccoli and thoroughly combine
  7. Add the Parmesan and bread crumbs to the melted butter and pour on top of the casserole
  8. Bake for 35-45 minutes (until top browns and begins to bubble)

* Careful on the salt (taste the ham to determine if you need salt)  

(Serves 4)
