Broccoli and Rice Casserole

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

I found this recipe in a Church cookbook years ago. It is always requested for family dinners. I like to use fresh broccoli but cooked frozen broccoli works fine. I sometimes add sliced water chestnuts. If you can't find Chickeny Mushroom soup, you can use either Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onions in butter.
  2. Add rice and brown with the onions about 5 minutes.
  3. Add salt and water and cover until water is absorbed.
  4. Mix rice, cooked broccoli, Cheez Whiz, and soup together and pour mixture into a large well greased casserole.
  5. Top with corn flake crumbs browned in a little butter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

I don't care for broccoli and rice casserole, however my family does. So every once in a while I make it for them. I will not be making this recipe again. My family thought it was OK

My family enjoyed this. It was very easy. I don't use Minute Rice, so in two separate pots I cooked basmanti rice, and blanched the broccoli. I didn't have Cheez Whiz, but I had Mozzarella, which 'hubby' helped grat and mixed all together.

This is my husbands favorite side at Thanksgiving! I use regular rice (cooked beforehand) and it's always a hit!
