Recipe – One Pot Meatless Meal – Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole

Digital Camera

I’m not much of meat eater, so for me this was dinner, but for you perhaps a crisp fresh salad and some meat or fish would complete it to your liking.  Either way it’s “homemade ish” as you will soon find out:

My ingredients:

shredded sharp cheddar cheese

French’s French Fried Onions

Fresh or frozen broccoli

Uncle Ben’s Country Inn Broccoli Rice Au Gratin

In one pot cook your broccoli until barely done if frozen and if (unlike me) you have fresh broccoli in hand, I would steam it so it still has some crispness . . .  my preference, cook it as you like but it will cook a bit more when incorporated in the finished dish.  Drain and hold aside.

In a second pot cook rice mix as directed.  When it is finished cooking and gets to the “cover and let stand five minutes” stage of prep, add your broccoli, a couple of palm fulls of shredded sharp cheddar, and stir.  Replace cover and allow to stand 5 minutes.  Just before serving, stir in a couple of handfuls of French’s onions, stir them in and add some more on top – not stirred in.  Done!  Eat.  Yum.

    I am SO starving, Sis–my hot spinach/artichoke dip is heating up, as we speak. Maybe I should share the recipe, as it has just about everything in it–and I’m serving it on a new nut and oat bread I just love! So, until it’s ready, my mouth is watering over your dinner!!


    • Love spin dip! Much have recipe! I can’t go to bed early. Hot chocolate and Frangelico on the horizon, already had my “healthy” food and some chips and dip, and Christmas baking and . . . . lol
