  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil a 9-inch baking dish with spray cooking oil.
  2. Place the bread cubes in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a large skillet, and pour half over the bread cubes. Toss cubes and set the bowl aside.
  3. Add the onion to the remaining butter in the skillet and cook over medium heat until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the chopped ham. Stir in the cream of celery soup and the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring. Remove from heat.
  4. Put the rice and water into the baking dish. Top with the drained green beans. Then spoon the ham mixture on top of the green beans. Cover with the slices of American cheese, then sprinkle over all with the bread cubes.
  5. Bake uncovered until cheese melts and edges bubble, about 45 minutes.

Excellent way to use leftover ham. I had to substitute cream of mushroom soup for the cream of celery, and I added 1 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce. Will definitely make this again.

This was pretty darned good. My husband just had seconds ! As far as quick casseroles go, this one was better than most. I had to use grated cheddar instead of American cheese, which was very...

This was very easy and good. My whole family liked it. However,it is not as good the next day-best served hot out of the oven.

Great Recipe!! Hubby loved it too! The only thing I changed was the cheese. I used cheddar instead of white american. Will definitly make it again!!

It's not bad -- good for using up my leftovers from Thanksgiving (we had ham instead of turkey). I used the leftover ham, fresh green beans, and some rolls and it came out pretty good. Oh, didn...

I wasn't sure at first but this turned out to be a family favorite. I parboiled the rice and fresh greenbeans but it worked perfectly. We will be making this again.
