Another Christmas has come and gone. We have been blessed beyond measure and enjoyed spending time with family. As my bride and eldest son returned to work today it was me and Natalie left to do some cleaning and cooking.
My middle child and youngest son Matthew gave me some Bobby Flay bake ware so I had to give it a trial run. I looked through my cookbooks and decided to go my own way on this dish.
Ingredients:2-3 cups of chopped ham
1 large onion, finely chopped2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups of cooked rice6oz mushrooms, roughly chopped
2 10oz boxes of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
3 slices Provolone cheeseSalt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the rice, milk, spinach, ½ the shredded cheese and eggs.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil, onion, garlic, and mushrooms, after a few moments add the ham.
Pour the mixture into a large casserole dish with cooking spray.
Spread out evenly and add the remainder of the mozzarella cheese. Cut the provolone into strips and spread out over the casserole.
Serve with French bread.
