Seems whenever I make a ham, there are always leftovers and I'm always looking for new ways to use it until its gone. So I have my usual recipes for ham salad, ham and egg quiche, and your classic ham and cheese sandwiches. But this time I decided to throw some things in a skillet and see how good it could be. So, I made it simple… I made it quick… and I made it delicious! This is a keeper my friends.
Cheesy Ham and Rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup white onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup diced ham
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
In a 10-inch skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Saute until onion is soft.
Add the rice, chicken broth, and ham. Bring mixture to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cover pan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Stir in half of the cheddar cheese and then sprinkle the rest on top. Replace cover to pan to melt the cheese.
Sprinkle with green onions. Serve!
