Broccoli, Rice, and Cheese Casserole

My mom used to make this for us when we were kids- I have even made it using browned chicken breasts for a full meal. This makes a ton and is great for a crowd. My mom always bought a 1 lb block of Velveeta and cubed 1/2 pound of it, and sliced up the other 1/4 pound, but if you can find the shredded velveeta - that's a great time saver! Prep time does not include rice cooking time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a deep skillet, add onion and saute till soft.
  2. To the onions add the cream of chicken soup, milk, and 1/2 pound of the velveeta (chunked).
  3. Fold in 3 cups of cooked rice, and the broccoli.
  4. Pour into a greased 9x13 casserole dish.
  5. Slice remaining 1/4 pound velveeta and place over casserole.
  6. Bake, uncovered at 350 F for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

This recipe is the best!! Just what I was looking for as a side dish. I cook a lot and usually use herbs and spices but wanted something tasty and basic to go with Tucsan dried tomato baked chicken and this was perfect!!! I also usually tweak every recipe but this one is perfect just as it is. Only had cheddar but am going to try next time with Velveeta. Thank you.
