For some unknown reason I have always struggled with making broccoli rice cheese casserole.
The rice is never done, or the cheese just doesn't taste right, or the broccoli is too crunchy.
I get frustrated every stinkin' time.
Until this last time....
I think I got it down.
Thanks to my Auntie.
She gave me the best tip ever! Use cheese soup.
I mix it all up right in the baking dish...1 cup of brown rice, cheese soup, and a 1/2 can of water.
then I add the cooked, chopped broccoli.
then I bake it at 350 for about 50 minutes...
finally I top the warm yummyness with shredded cheddar cheese,
and broil just until the cheese is lightly browned.
