One of my favorite dishes growing up was this wonderful broccoli casserole. We always served it when we had company over and often brought it to potluck dinners. Once I was an adult I specifically requested this recipe from my mom. It is the most perfect broccoli casserole I’ve ever had!
This is such an old standby kind of recipe. It’s the type of dish that kids will usually eat and a comforting food for people like me who occasionally enjoy cheese slathered broccoli. Tonight we ate healthy oven roasted broccoli, which is very good. But for special occasions we eat Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole and it’s wonderful.Print
2 cups Minute Rice
40 ounces frozen chopped broccoli (I use 4 of the 10 ounce boxes of frozen broccoli)
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 onions, diced
1 cup milk
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
15 ounce jar of Cheez Whiz
- In a large bowl, combine the butter, Cheez Wiz, and milk. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Pour mixture into a large buttered casserole dish. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
Makes 12 servings.
Note: For potluck dinners I prepare this recipe according to directions. After baking I scoop the casserole into a slow cooker and keep it on warm until serving. Works perfectly!
