When I was little, serving this dish was the only way my mother could get me to eat broccoli. It’s an excellent recipe to serve anytime, and is especially good with poultry.

"Made this as directed except I topped it with cracker crumbs before baking for a potluck and every bite was eaten! Very tasty and easy to prepare!"

"Always a great recipe. I add a few drops of hot sauce to spice it up a little. I also substitute Cream of chicken soup for a different taste."

"This was good but not my favorite. I will try some more recipes. The soup made it a little too creamy."

"This is an all time favorite in my home. Sometimes I will add some crushed Ritz Crackers on top and drizzle some melted butter, just to give it a crunchy topping. You can also add chopped waterchest nuts for a little crunch in the middle without changing the flavor alot. Delicious! I will be making it for Thanksgiving. We love it!"

"Re: Broccoli Rice casserole

I always made this with cream of celery soup (only because I don't like mushrooms) and added a can of slice water chestnuts for a bit of crunch."
