Yet Another Broccoli Rice Casserole - Husband Approved!

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CountryMama

Despite a million broccoli casserole recipes on this site, I couldn't find one that fit my criteria so I ended up making one up. Turned out amazing (so says hubby) and there weren't any leftovers despite there being only 2-1/2 of us (mom, dad, and toddler).

Great recipe enjoyed by all, except the 14 month old...she doesn't count! I used sharp cheddar cheese. I like my casserole to have more rice in it...I think I'll double the rice and milk next time. If you are not a big rice fan, this casserole is for you!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 ounces fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (or substitute your favourite cream soup)
  • 12 cup grated cheddar cheese (or your favourite)
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 12 cup instant rice
  • 23 cup milk
  • grated cheese, for topping (optional)


  1. VERY slightly steam broccoli (until still fairly crisp, unless you like mushy veggies in which case cook until tender).
  2. Place in greased casserole dish.
  3. Mix rest of ingredients, except topping, and pour over broccoli.
  4. Stir gently until well mixed.
  5. Top with additional cheese, if desired.
  6. Bake in 350 F oven for 30-35 minutes.
