This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may not be posted on some. Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas

I mixed the cheese sauce and rice together before baking. Added a good dose of salt and pepper, and sprinkled sharp cheddar on top. Very creamy. Thanks for sharing.

Great casserole! My mom made a very similar one in the microwave and it had a can of chicken breast in it. I did use brown rice instead of the white and loved the bit of crunch from the celery. Next time I will add more Chez Whiz or throw in some shredded cheddar cheese for a little more cheese flavor. This will be a family favorite for sure!

Wow! What memories. This is the broccoli and rice casserole that my mother always made. I remember the first time she made it because I'd never seen Cheez Whiz before then. It's been made dozens of times since and is still hard to beat.
