      This was great and I will make it again. I had leftover rice and a big bunch of broccoli to use up. I was looking for something to serve with my pork roast and this was perfect. I used butter instead of margarine, full fat cheddar, and light mayonnaise. I sprinkled a bit of cheese on top instead of the melba toast. Very good!

      Very good dish. I made it as posted except I did not use any low fat ingredients; the broccoli was garden fresh. Used panko crumbs for the topping. I chose this recipe because it is one of the few broccoli-rice casseroles that does not use any canned creamed soup. I definitely will make this again. Thanks for posting it.

      Excellent dish. Very tasty and healthy. Next time, I might even try to add some chicken or turkey to add a little protein to it as well. Thanks for the recipe. It was delicious.
