Healthy Ham, Swiss Cheese and Veggie Bake

September 14, 2013Teresa

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Healthy Ham, Swiss Cheese and Veggie Bake is wonderful.  It’s made with diced ham, gluten free noodles and two different packages of frozen stir-fry blend vegetables. I also added garlic, onions and leeks in a delicious Swiss cheese sauce seasoned with dill weed, parsley, thyme, and marjoram. The taste is excellent (my husband ate two HUGE servings the night I served this recipe). It’s especially good since the Swiss cheese infuses a lot of savory flavor into the dish.

While this casserole does have several steps, it’s really not too difficult. You can melt more Swiss cheese on the top the last five minutes of baking or just sprinkle it on individual servings like I did. Or you can add buttered bread crumbs on top if you like. I didn’t have any gluten free bread crumbs so I omitted them. Since I was trying to keep the dish gluten free, I didn’t add anything more except fresh, torn parsley. Healthy Ham, Swiss Cheese and Veggie Bake is amazing!

I love my Creamy Ham, Veggies and Noodle Bake recipe. However, I wanted to create a healthier version made with more natural ingredients. That meant creating a recipe that left out the canned soups. While they’re tasty and easy, they’re so full of killer ingredients like preservatives and MSG which increases your appetite five-fold! I also wanted a completely different overall taste then that recipe.

I saw that I had a bunch of diced ham, lots of Swiss cheese, and frozen veggies that I really wanted to clear out of my freezers. I came up with this flavor combination that’s not only tasty, but has a lot more pure, clean ingredients too. I had plenty of gluten free noodles on hand so I chose to use gluten free flour as well to make the sauce  for my gluten free followers.

Ham and Swiss cheese not only work well together on sandwiches, but they’re exceptional in casseroles! So if you’re looking for healthier main dish options for your family then consider this one some time. I really liked the combination of stir-fry type veggies I used for this dish. They provided a lot of different textures and shapes, but almost any kind of frozen veggie will work. For that matter, if you’re trying to use up garden produce almost any kind of fresh veggie will work, too.

This tasty casserole is pure comfort food. If you want a more nourishing, gluten free main dish, give Healthy Ham, Swiss Cheese and Veggie Bake a try sometime soon. But beware! Your family may want two HUGE servings each like my husband did!

Instructions
  1. Bring noodles to a boil and cook al dente – about two minutes less than the amount given.
  2. Meanwhile, make sauce.
  3. Melt butter in cast-iron Dutch oven.
  4. Add diced onion and leeks and sauté a few minutes.
  5. Add minced garlic and sauté a few minutes more.
  6. Whisk in gluten free flour.
  7. Then begin adding cream about ¼ cup at a time until all the cream is incorporated.
  8. Stir in Swiss cheese, then add salt, pepper, dill weed, marjoram, and thyme.
  9. Then stir in the two packages of frozen, uncooked veggies.
  10. Stir in ham, parsley, and cooked noodles.
  11. Place in a 9x13” glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  12. Bake at 350° about 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.
  13. Garnish with more parsley and Swiss cheese, as desired.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: When casserole is done you can add an additional cup of Swiss cheese on top of the casserole and bake 5 minutes more if desired.

NOTE: DON'T use gluten free noodles made strictly with corn. They turn out horrible! Use gluten free noodles made with rice as the predominate ingredient. Ronzoni makes a wonderful GF pasta these days. While I used DeBoles pasta, it is extremely starchy and also very fragile. My preferred GF pasta is Ronzoni.

NOTE: Gluten free noodles made only with corn are hard, crunchy and are so fragile they break apart very easily. They don't cook well for use in casseroles or pasta salads. This is the voice of experience talking!!! Avoid them like the plague!

Eat, drink, and be merry! Here’s another close up so you can see the texture of all the veggies in the delicious Swiss cheese sauce. If you serve the casserole immediately, the Swiss cheese will melt on its own. Otherwise, if you’re not going to serve the casserole immediately, you may want to add the Swiss cheese and bake 5 more minutes.
