Recipe of the Month
By Dorothy Zehnder
Ingredients and Instructions:
3 10-ounce packages frozen chopped broccoli
1 cup uncooked rice
2 cups water
2 10-ounce cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 16-ounce jar Cheez Whiz or other brand
¼ cup butter or margarine (½ stick)
¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs
Put uncooked broccoli on bottom of greased 9x13” pan. In a saucepan, mix together rice, water, soup and Cheez Whiz. Cook and stir until creamy; pour over broccoli. Melt butter and blend in bread crumbs. Sprinkle over casserole mixture as topping.
Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 35-40 minutes.
Option: You can add 1 can of sliced mushrooms or use cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken soup.
Note from Dorothy – This is a perfect side dish to accompany any main dish. My family loves it, but I have to always add the optional mushrooms for them. Not necessary if you or your family do not care for mushrooms. The casserole is just as great without the mushrooms.
