One day, I'm going to blog about my favorite pet peeve: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But that's for another day. For now, today is devoted to recipes.
CREAMY HAM CASSEROLE
1 med. head cauliflower (2 pounds)
2 cups cubed cooked ham (I use turkey ham)
1 3-oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained
4 Tbs. butter or margarine
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup (4 oz.) cubed sharp process American cheese
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1 cup soft bread crumbs (1 1/2 slices)
1 Tbs. butter or margarine, melted
Break cauliflower into buds (about 4 cups). Cook, covered, in boiling salted water till tender, 10-12 mins. Drain. Combine ham and mushrooms. In medium saucepan melt the 4 Tbs. butter and stir in flour. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir till mixture thickens and bubbles. Add cheese and sour cream to sauce. Stir till cheese melts.
Combine with cauliflower and ham mixture. Turn into 2 quart casserole. Combine crumbs and the remaining butter. sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes or till hot. Makes 6 servings.
If you don't love this casserole, then you aren't normal. :-)
