We weren't poor growing up but we sure didn't waste either. After Christmas dinner my mother would freeze part of the Christmas ham for New Years day dinner. So I guess you could call this New Years Day Ham and Scallop Cabbage!
Cut your cabbage into small pieces. Blanch it for about 15 mins. Put cabbage into large casserole dish. Cut ham into cubes add to the casserole dish.Cut up your celery into small pieces and add it to your mixture. Then add your cream soups. Cut your Velveeta cheese into cubes and add to your mixture. Then add can milk and mix well. You can add your silver coins now too.
Put your butter in a skillet after it melts crumble up your Ritz crackers into your butter and brown on top of the stove. Sprinkle on top of your ham and cabbage mixture.
Heat oven at 350 degrees. Place casserole dish with your ham and cabbage mixture into oven. Bake for about one hour. Your mixture will bubble and the cheese will melt. The crackers on top will get a pretty golden brown. I serve this dish at our New Years dinner, the kids love it.
