CHEESY HAM AND GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE
1 small onion, sliced very thin, 2.5 ounces
1/4 cup celery, finely diced
2 tablespoons butter
2 14 ounce cans French-cut green beans, drained well
4 ounce can mushrooms, drained well
12 ounces ham, diced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces pepper-jack, cheddar or Swiss cheese, shredded

SautÚ the onion and celery in butter until very tender and a little browned. In a 2-quart greased casserole, mix the green beans, mushrooms, ham, mayonnaise and seasonings. Stir in the onion mixture, then the cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350║ 30 minutes, or until browned and bubbly. If assembling ahead of time and chilled, bake an additional 10-15 minutes.

This is yet another take on Dottie's Green Bean Casserole. Green beans are a bit high in carbs so watch your portion size. I made mine with pepper-jack cheese, but I think it would be very nice with Swiss cheese. This was very good and the pepper-jack cheese gave it a spicy kick. I don't recommend using ham that has been frozen. Once it started to cook, it released all of its liquid and I ended up with a watery casserole. This shouldn't be a problem if you use fresh ham and drain the veggies well.
