Hearty Ham, Cheese, Rice and Broccoli Casserole

Submitted by: WILDLIFEJO
Hearty Ham, Cheese, Rice and Broccoli Casserole

Number of Servings: 10


    4 cups cooked medium grain brown rice (for fiber and protein)
    2 cups chopped broccoli (for a vitamin and fiber kick)
    1 cup chopped ham (you can subtitute lean for a lower calorie choice)
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (for calcium and flavor)
    1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
    1/2 cup low-fat/fat-free cream of broccoli soup
    Italian-style bread crumbs
    (seasonings to taste, but watch extra salt, because ham is naturally salty!)


Note: Prep time includes cooking the brown rice

While cooking brown rice, prepare the other food. Shred the cheese, chop the broccoli and chop the ham. When rice is done, combine in a LARGE casserole dish the rice, ham, cheese, broccoli, sour cream and soup. Mix well. On top of the mixture, add the bread crumbs.
Cook covered at 425 degrees for 1/2 hour. Serves 10.

Number of Servings: 10

  • Incredible!

    Substituted mushroom soup for broccoli soup, and added a little water/milk to the casserole before baking and it wasn't dry - turned out very nice (baked at 350 for 45 minutes with something else that I had baking at 350). Very good - added to my recipe book! Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 8/6/10

    Made this last night and it turned out awesome. I rarely deviate from a recipe the first time I make it but I think next time I'll add mushrooms. - 4/7/10

  • My husband and I both enjoyed this recipe. Very easy to make. Mine wasn't the most attractive meal, but still very tasty. - 4/3/13

  • This was delicious!! I think in the future I will add a little milk as suggested, the edges did turn out a little bit dry, but otherwise this dish was wonderful, very satisfying, and super filling. Definitely worth putting on the calorie counter, and great for "sneaking" in the veggies! - 10/2/12

  • This was a really quick recipe to put together and we thought it was pretty good. Although it has ingredients that we all love, It just seemed to be missing something. Probably won't make again without making some changes. - 3/6/12

  • It was good but not great. The kids liked it though and had second helpings. I did add milk as someone had suggested. - 2/24/12

  • Will try this recipe tonight, but I will halve it as there is only my husband and myself to eat it. 10 servings is a lot. I too will use cream of mushroom soup as I don't have the brocooli soup. Sounds good. - 1/28/12

  • My kids and I enjoyed this recipe, but my DH did not. I altered the recipe some because I was trying to get rid of some left-overs. I increased the ham to 2 cups, the broccoli to 3 cups and the broccoli soup to a full can. I used reg. sour cream and decreased the cheese to 1 cup. Turned out well. - 12/31/11

  • I used my precooked rice base (wild rice, brown rice & bulgher) that I keep in 1 c servings in the freezer--makes for easy prep! And doubled the veggies. Yum! - 3/21/11

  • It tasted pretty good, but I give it 4 stars because it wasn't as filling as I was hoping from the description. Granted, we used it as our main meal, and not a side... Probably would be better as a side. My husband and I ended up getting 2 servings to fill ourselves up, and we are not big eaters! - 1/24/11

  • even my kids liked it. Also I couldn't find cream of broccoli soup so I used fat free cream of celery - 1/12/11

  • This turned out really good. I didn't have any sour cream so I just used a whole can of cream of broccoli. Not overly salty either. I really enjoyed it. Will make again. - 12/28/10

  • I have a question - why such a high oven temp? Most casseroles cook at 350 degrees. Has anyone tried this at a lower temp than 425? - 4/15/10

  • Very quick and easy! I changed a couple of things by using reduced fat Broccoli Cheese soup instead of Cream of Broccoli. I didn't have italian bread crumbs, so I combined a dry packet of Italian dressing with the bread crumbs. It all turned out great! - 4/12/10
