Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole {Granny's Recipe}

6:17 PM
Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole, bubbly, cheesy, rich and so very good.  The perfect old fashioned side dish that graces our table every gathering.

This Broccoli-Cheese Rice Casserole goes way back.  In the 70's, it was on every dinner table as the star side dish.

Mother made it for all the Holidays and most family gatherings.  It was not unusual for the casserole dish to be empty when it came time to clear the table.

I must say I have just reconnected with this wonderful cheesy side dish, and it brings me back to so many delicious memories.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
