Broccoli & Rice Gratin

"Creamy baked rice and broccoli, an easy delicious side dish or light lunch with a salad and sliced tomatoes! My DD will only eat rice if cooked like this (or chinese) it is really easy, and tastes great! Good re-heated too! I have also used spinach or 1 cup of frozen peas instead of the broccoli. I think this came from a milk calander."

    This was simple to make with ingredients that I typically have on hand. I upped the broccoli and skipped the topping. I'm going to try a different kind of cheese next time. Thanks, Lois M.

    This was excellent!! I really enjoyed it and my girls ate all they were given which is always fine by me! We used tenderstem broccoli which worked well because the stem still had a bit of a crunch. This is a definite keeper. Thanks for posting!

    Made this recipe to accompany oven roasted chicken. I doubled the broccoli and used long-grain brown rice. It was tasty. Next time I make it, I will decrease the amount of topping mixture--I think that it makes it a bit dry. Great recipe--thanks for posting!

    This was really good, a nice creamy rice dish. I served it with a baked fish recipe, loved the lemon and also the crunchy topping. Thanks for sharing.
