Green Bean Ham Potato Casserole

Fair warning.  This picture doesn't look like much and in real life, it's not exactly breath taking either.  It is, after all, a casserole.  But, it is a tasty dish and is something I wouldn't hesitate to serve with say, Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner because it has that homey comforting goodness to it.  What this casserole has going for it is that it doesn't use cream of ___ condensed soup so fear not!

Green Bean Ham Potato Casserole

  • 3/8 cup of butter
  • 3/8 cup of flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cup grated Cheddar or American cheese
  • 4 cups of cooked green beans
  • 4 medium, diced, cooked potatoes
  • 3 cups diced cooked ham
  • Bread crumbs (optional)
  1. Melt butter and stir in flour.  Add milk, stirring constantly, until thickened.  Remove from heat, add cheese and stir until melted.  
  2. Arrange potatoes in a buttered casserole dish and cover with green beans,  Pour half of cheese sauce over the green beans.  Add ham and remaining cheese sauce.  Top with buttered bread crumbs if desired.  
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
