Ruths Holiday Broccoli Cheese Casserole (no Rice)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

This recipe was given to me by a friend of my Mother's and it combines the perfect partners of broccoli and cheese to make broccoli "a star".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook broccoli until tender but not overcooked; drain well.
  2. Place cooked broccoli into a pre-sprayed casserole dish.
  3. Mix cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, onion, and 1 cup of shredded cheese together.
  4. Pour over the broccoli in the casserole dish.
  5. Sprinkle desired amount of croutons over the top.
  6. Top with remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  8. You may substitute cauliflower for the broccoli.
  9. I sometimes add cooked turkey, chicken or ham for a complete one dish meal.

I looked up chicken and brocolli without rice as I am eating lower carbs. I am soo glad that I found your recipe! I didn't have any cream of mushroom soup on hand so I used real mushrooms, sautéed with the onions and added Sour cream and cheese to that mixture. We had leftover hot breast (hot wing sauce and garlic on Chicken breast) so I diced that and added it over the brocolli. I omitted the croutons since lowering carbs and added a few shakes of red pepper flakes. It is wonderful! This will be our go to leftover hot breast dish!

My whole family loved it! All three kids, plus my husband, plus me! I've tried a LOT of broccoli casseroles, and this is the first one that has passed the whole-family-took-seconds test! I followed as directed, but used "light" sour cream, and I also sauteed the minced onions in butter before adding them. Mmmmm. Delish! It also looks quite pretty. And, it is super easy! Thanks!
