You will love this dish which is fit for a King and his Queen.

1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 (10oz.) pkg. frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
3 Tbsp. butter, melted and divided
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups cubed, cooked ham
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Spoon rice into a lightly greased 11X7-inch baking dish. Layer broccoli over rice.
Combine breadcrumbs and 1 1/2 tablespoons butter; set aside.
Cook onion in remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in ham, salt, and pepper.
Spoon ham mixture over broccoli layer; top with cheese slices, and sprinkle with breadcrumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden.
