For varying or modifying this casserole, here are a few suggestions:
Try out different cheeses. Gouda/Swiss would be delicious too!
Instead of ham, substitute leftover diced chicken.
For cauliflower – broccoli cheese and ham, feel free to substitute broccoli – YUM.
How long is leftover ham good for?
For no more than 4 days, leftover ham is good if stored in your refrigerator in an air-tight container.
How do you store leftover ham?
In your refrigerator for up to 4 days, store any remaining ham in an airtight container/plastic bag.
Can you freeze leftover ham?
If store in a freezer-safe airtight bag or container, ham can be frozen. In a plastic freezer bag, I like to freeze ham slices. I leave some of the ham on the bone and freezer for later use in soup if I have a leftover ham bone.
