How To Make cheesy broccoli & rice casserole

  • 1
    Prepare broccoli according to package directions. I bring the broccoli to a boil and then turn down the heat and simmer the broccoli about 10 more minutes.
  • 2
    Prepare rice according to package directions.
  • 3
    Combine soups and Cheez Whiz in a saucepan and heat on low heat, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
  • 4
    Pour melted butter in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • 5
    Drain the broccoli, but reserve about 1/2 cup of the juice.
  • 6
    Combine all in the baking dish and mix together thoroughly. I usually combine the broccoli, juice and rice first, and then mix in the soups/Cheez Whiz. Note: You will probably not need the entire saucepan of soup/Cheez Whiz mixture. Just eyeball it.
  • 7
    Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.
