The pasta con broccoli from last week was great! But I still have more frozen broccoli. What to do? What to do?
A few years ago we went to a Turkey Fry at my cousin’s house. It was my first time having fried turkey and it was delicious. But you know what I couldn’t get out of my head, the broccoli rice casserole. It was cheesy, comforting and absolutely delicious. I could have eaten the whole pan but I know that is rude… so I refrained.
A couple weeks ago I FINALLY asked for the recipe and I’m so happy she shared it with me! Not only that, she said I could share it with you. Thanks Melissa!
This recipe is perfect for #NoBuyJanuary! I have the broccoli in the freezer downstairs and pretty much everything else in the pantry. The one specific thing I did have to go buy: Cheez Whiz. I have never purchased Cheez Whiz in my life but the recipe was so perfect I wasn’t going to try to mess with it at all. I did have to ask people in the grocery store where to find it though. It is in the dairy section near the other cheeses, go figure. And, I also don’t usually have Minute Rice but sometimes I do. I will tell you from experience, this recipe does not work with regular long grain rice. Just go grab a box of minute rice if you don’t have it. It’s worth it.
This recipe is super simple! Mix everything together in a bowl, put it in a casserole dish and bake.
DONE! It is a great side dish. It feeds a crowd and is so versatile. Great with almost any meaty main course (turkey, chicken, ham, etc). I can’t wait!!!
