Broccoli, Cheese and Rice Casserole Recipe

Cheese lovers rejoice!  Here is a way to make vegetables absolutely delicious.  I originally got this recipe from my friend’s mom.  She makes it at every family party of theirs and we all just flip out.  Now I make it for my own family and it’s always a huge hit.

Broccoli, Cheese and Rice Casserole Recipe
Rich and cheesy veggie casserole that everyone enjoys. Calls for broccoli, but I like to use a broccoli and cauliflower mix.
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 4 Bags of Frozen Broccoli or Mixed Veggies
  • Large block of Velveeta Cheese
  • 2 Sticks of Butter
  • 2 Rolls of Ritz Crackers
  • 2 Cans of Cream of Broccoli Soup
  • Milk
  • 1 - 1½ Bags of Uncle Ben's Rice - Boil in Bag (Orange Box)
Instructions
  1. Boil rice
  2. Boil broccoli (or mixed veggies) and drain well
  3. In a big pot add soup and 1½ - 2 cans of milk (using soup cans)
  4. Cut cheese into chunks and add to soup mixture until melted
  5. Add rice to soup mixture
  6. If it is too soupy add cheese and/or rice - If it's too thick, add milk
  7. Melt 1 stick of butter and pour over broccoli
  8. Add broccoli to mixture
  9. Mix well
  10. Put into a pan - usually this much can fit into at least 2 different 9 x 13 pans
  11. Crumble crackers and put on top
  12. Put into refrigerator overnight
  13. Next day....
  14. Melt butter and drizzle over crackers
  15. Bake at 325 - 350 degrees for 30 minutes
  16. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving

Since this makes such an enormous batch, it’s great for our huge family gatherings.  I have also added chicken to the leftovers to make a nice dinner for Mike and I.  You can switch up the veggies and add more or less rice to create variations.  In any case, this is definitely NOT a low fat recipe, and very rich.  But, it’s darn delicious!  ;)
