Tonight for dinner I had fully planned on making one of our family favorites, Cashew Chicken. The rice was cooking so I could make up a quick batch of Fried Rice, when it hit me. I think we ran out of Soy Sauce months ago. Who runs out of Soy Sauce and forgets to replace it for this long? Sure enough–no Soy Sauce–no Cashew Chicken.
Ack! Tonight there was no Plan B, or so I thought.
In a hurry to get something thrown together, I decided that a casserole of some form would have to work. After many different concoctions crossed my mind, this is what we ended up with. Boy was it good!
Cheesy Ham and Rice Casserole
1 ½ cups diced ham (or more if you prefer)
3 cups cooked, lightly seasoned brown rice (I season ours with salt and pepper)
½ bag fr0zen peas
1 cup chicken broth
½ cup milk
handful shredded cheese
Add the cooked rice, peas, and ham to an 8×11 casserole dish and mix up. Mix up the milk and the chicken broth and pour into dish. Top with cheese.
Bake at 350° for about 30-45 minutes.
