Doggy Treat: Ham Upside-Down Casserole

When I cook a whole ham, I always freeze the leftover meat and the ham bone. With the bone, you can make many great broths and soups—

This casserole can be refrigerated for 4 days or frozen for 3 months in an airtight container.

Ham Upside-Down Casserole

What You Need:

  • 11⁄2 cups cubed cooked ham
  • 1 cup lima beans, cooked and drained
  • 8-ounce can cream-style corn
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley, or 11⁄3 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2⁄3 cup flour
  • 1⁄3 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons plain wheat germ
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄4 cup milk
  • fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

What To Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 8-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ham, lima beans, corn, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, and parsley.
  3. Turn the mixture into the prepared casserole dish, cover, and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spoon over the hot meat mixture, spreading the batter evenly to the edges.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. A knife inserted into the center should come out clean. Let cool, cut into wedges, and invert each wedge onto a plate. If you have fresh parsley on hand, use it for garnish.
