Ham, Mac’n’Cheese & Green Bean Casserole is a lovely combination for any meal. It is most certainly a feast. It is best prepared in advance and then simply reheated just before serving. Otherwise its a brilliant weekend feast. The salty ham pairs beautifully with the cheesy pasta and the green beans provide both an element of fun and veg!
I’ve written a comprehensive guide how to host a Big Americana Feast. But you can have an American Feast on a much smaller scale. I regularly make myself a feast for one!
I’ve put together a selection of smaller collections of my recipes which you can use everyday. This is my ham, cheesy pasta and creamy green bean casserole menu. Don’t forget to have a look at my other everyday Americana Feasts too!
Everyday Ham, Mac’n’Cheese & Green Bean Americana Feast Recipes
Ok I admit that unlike the majority of my everyday feast collections, this one is a little harder to whip up after work on a Wednesday.
But prepare everything in advance and its super easy to throw together and reheat at any time. Everything can even be frozen in portions for maximum convenience.
Ginger Ham with Southern Comfort Glaze
My ham recipes yields roughly enough ham to feed 12 people. You can of course choose to cook a smaller ham to serve less people. But if I’m spending the time and effort to boil and glaze a ham, I want the maximum benefit from that time spent.
So I will usually make a large ham and then eat the leftovers throughout the week and/or freeze it in portions for a later time. I am especially partial to a sandwich made with my ham and a good helping of creamy coleslaw.
Green Bean Casserole
Sometimes I do just eat ham and the macaroni cheese but it is a good idea to try to throw some veg in the mix! I’m not sure that green bean casserole is the healthiest of the options. But it really rounds out the prep-ahead nature and sheer American-ness of this meal!
The recipe given serves 4 and this can be adjusted in the recipe card if needed.
Baked Macaroni Cheese
My simple and unadorned macaroni cheese provides the perfect foil to the salty ginger ham. The recipe is also set to serve 4 as a main course. You may find that you have some leftovers when serving it as a side. This is no bad thing!
