HAM GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE WITH CHEESE

This recipe is one I came up with by taking my favorite parts of a couple of old recipes and making them into this one!

1 pkg (1-lb) frozen french-style cut green beans1 1/2 cups fully cooked diced ham
1 can (10 3/4-oz) condensed cream of celery soup
1 can (10 3/4-oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon or spicy brown mustard
3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish or pan, layer the green beans then the ham.  Combine the soups, undiluted, with the mayonnaise and mustard; pour over the ham.  Sprinkle the cheese over the soup mixture.

In a cup, toss the bread crumbs in the melted butter; sprinkle over the top of the cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, for approximately half an hour or until heated through and bubbly and the cheese has melted.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings.
