What makes this quick-cooking side dish really tasty is coating the broccoli and rice in a creamy cheese sauce...yum.  If you’re looking for a healthier version, try: Broccoli Cheddar Rice

Ingredients

cost per recipe: $8.06

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 16 ounces frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat (2%) milk
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 jar (8 ounces) pasteurized process cheese sauce
  • 3 cups cooked long grain white rice (use leftover cooked rice or start cooking the rice before assembling the other ingredients)

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Save on prep time by using uncooked rice!  Add 1 cup uncooked converted long-grain white rice and 1 cup water or Swanson® Chicken Broth at the end of step 2.  Bake, covered, for 40 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F.  While the oven is heating, heat the butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Stir the broccoli in the skillet and cook until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the milk, soup, cheese sauce and rice.  Cook and stir until the cheese sauce is melted.  Pour the broccoli mixture into an 11x8x2-inch baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

  • Love it!!!!

    I tried this for the first time this Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit!! I stuck with the recipe this time except for using Campbell's Cheese instead of cheez whiz. My kids even wanted more today so I'm making it but adding chicken chunks and mushrooms. Yum! This was so easy to make.

  • Yummy!

    Instead of chez whiz, I added a packet of Velveeta cheese sauce to the Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup, a sprinkle of garlic powder, and a splash of white wine. Added a topping of a combination of Italian bread crumbs, Panko crumbs, dotted with butter before baking. Amazingly creamy and delicious! No leftovers unfortunately.

    Is this is the 'original' Broccoli Rice Casserole recipe, which might have been on the back of a Campbell soup can many years ago? My grandmother used to make it when I was a kid, and it was SO delicious! She said the recipe was on the back of a soup can. I'd like to make, & to relive the flavor of her wonderful casserole, if this is the original one. PLEASE help. Thank you very much.

  • Yum comfort food..

    I make this but I usually double it. We love it a lot but I put onions in also .

  • One of my childhood favorites!

    My grandmother used to let me help her make this every Thanksgiving, Christmas or special occasion. It feeds a lot, yet the recipe is very easy to adjust for smaller families. I like the fact that you can make it pretty much any way you want, using healthier, low-sodium, low-fat ingredients. If you are not able to use milk, substitute with chicken stock instead. I've often used an 8 oz block of sharp cheese (shredded) instead of cheeze whiz, and it's just as flavorful. You can also "kick it up a notch" by adding leftover chicken, chopped celery and fresh or dried herbs; you've just made a full meal. Any way you make broccoli-rice casserole, it turns out delicious and very filling.
