An Easygoing Side Everyone Loves
A vegetable-and-rice casserole is familiar and satisfying, much like a smoked ham. This one doesn't disappoint, although it is a little unexpected, with Brussels sprouts standing in for the usual broccoli or green beans, as well as diced apple, which goes beautifully with the ham. Cheddar and heavy cream give the dish just enough richness.
