Creamy Broccoli and Rice Casserole - Made by MiMi

   When K.C. invited us over for his crab fest, MiMi and I got together to decide who would make what side dishes.  I was thinking I would make either some sort of macaroni and cheese or a cheese and broccoli rice bake.  MiMi said she was making cookies and broccoli and rice casserole.  It's funny how these things work!  So, I set off to make a new version of a spring pea salad instead.  I figured we might appreciate something cool and light with all the rich and yummy food everyone else was making.

    MiMi's broccoli and rice was really good.  It was nice and creamy with lots of cheese.  It was so smooth and yummy.  The adults all really liked it, but Jax loved it!

Creamy Broccoli and Rice Casserole


1 stick butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 bag frozen broccoli
1 1/2 cups rice, uncooked
2 cups Velveeta, cubed
Pepper to taste

  1. Put onion and butter in the bottom of a 9 x 13" pan.
  2. Put the pan in the oven and turn it on to preheat to 350 F, allowing the butter to melt and the onions to soften.
  3. Stir in the rice, soups, broccoli, milk & black pepper to taste.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, stir an then bake 15 more minutes
See, there wasn't much left!


  1. Yummy! It must have been really good since it's all gone! Guess I should try it now.

    Thanks for sharing at Inspire Me Mondays!

  2. I am always on the lookout for recipes suitable for my toddler. I think this would be great as the broccoli is almost "hidden". He loves rice so this is something I will be trying out! Thanks for linking up at Mum-bo Monday

    1. My toddler loved it. He likes to play with broccoli, but never really eats it!

  3. This is a great casserole with a lot of comfort, we will love it. Your post is awesome and thanks so much for sharing it with Full Plate Thursday!
    Happy Spring!
