Rice Broccoli Casserole
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
I don't usually used canned soup recipes, but needed something quick that I could make ahead of time. I used fresh broccoli and steamed it a few minutes first, chopping it into small pieces before adding to the rice. I also added 3/4 tsp garlic powder, sprinkled on some fresh ground pepper, and 1 tsp of a spice blend we enjoy. We like a spice / herb flavor. I used fresh chopped onion, that I sautéed in butter until soft instead of dried onion. I also used white converted rice, and cooked it as directed before adding the sauce and broccoli to it. Once in the casserole dish, I sprinkled a can of French fried onions over the top. I baked it the next day before our event, and it was tasty. A great potluck rice dish. I served this with Barbqued country ribs. It was a hit.
This recipe is bland because it needs more cheese. Eight ounces of cheese is not enough. Barely any cheese flavor. I would suggest using 16 ounces of cheese next time.
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.
Really didn't like this, it was fairly boring.
I made this go go with Christmas dinner. It was much easier than the other recipes I have used for this dish. Everyone loved it...myself included!
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!
Cooked this last night. Instead of cheese sauce I used a block of valveeta cheese I already had on hand. It was delicious!
I think I'll try this with cream of celery soup because fo a severe mushroom allergy. But I love broccoli and I love rice
