…and it was from left overs. Yea, it was a low energy day, but dinner turned out great. I figured since many people do ham on or around Easter, there is usually a lot left in the fridge. And really, one can only take so many ham sandwiches before you want to throw the whole thing out the door.
I know some people who hate to read a blog just to get to the recipes, so I am just going to list it up here first.
2 big/3 regular servings:
2 cups cooked ham, cubed
2 cups cooked green beans, cut into about 1 inch pieces
1/2-1 tsp seasoning (garlic/herb blends are nice, or a salt/pepper/onion powder/garlic powder would work well too) to taste
1 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese (fresh tastes so much better than the green can)
1 tsp butter or oil
This was a super simple toss together in one pan and you are good to go kind of a meal, with only 4 ingredients. How can you beat that? So I have these darling friends who stopped by with a big old chunk of ham leftover from their family get together over the weekend. It was really good, but I have this thing. I hate, hate, hate eating the same thing meal after meal. This girl needs variety, my guy…not so much. Anyway, so here I am with this lovely hunk-o-ham, some green beans left over from last nights pot roast, and an empty belly.
The green beans where whole, so I gave them a quick chop. Used a micro-plainer to make a big fluffy pile of grated parmesan, and cubed up the ham real quick.
I am currently without a stove/oven, but I have an awesome little tabletop infrared oven doodad. (It is one of those as seen on tv sort of deals, but I couldn’t live without this thing.) I plopped the ham in a stoneware dish with a touch of butter and cooked it on high for about 5 minutes until it got a little bit brown (for stovetop just place in a skillet and saute until a little brown) added the green beans, bout a tsp of garlic & herb seasoning (I used Weber brand and it is pretty tasty if not a little salty.) Add the cheese, stir well and cook another 5-10 minutes until all if nice and hot. Serve with an extra bit of cheese on top if you like.
