Ham & Broccoli Casserole

I am going to be induced tonight and hopefully have a baby by tomorrow. Knowing this, I am able to plan ahead and put my "nesting energy" to work. I made myself a few freezer meals in anticipation of my post-partum loss of energy, and this one I threw together this morning.
This casserole is just a casserole. But it is one I grew up on, and therefore it is "comfort food." My mom calls it "company casserole," but I never serve casserole to company, so I stick to "Ham & Broccoli Casserole."

Ham & Broccoli Casserole
(thanks to my mom, Kristi Skidmore)

1 bag frozen chopped broccoli
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can of milk
1 c. grated cheese
3 c. ham, cooked & cubed (I buy bags of cubed ham in the deli meat section)
2 c. Minute rice
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce

Mix all together in a large bowl. Pour into casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

(Freezes well if cooked first, then frozen. Remember when you freeze dishes to place a piece of saran wrap right on top of the food, then cover with foil--keeps food fresher!)

I'm Heather Guymon's cousin and I checked your blog to get the recipe for the yummy lemon bundt cake she said you made. I went to make it and saw the recipe for the Meringue Cake you got from Mimmu Sloan. I know her too. My dad knew her when he served his mission in Finland. Funny small world huh? Six degrees of seperation right? Congrats on the new addition and keep up the yummy recipes!
