This is one of my favorite times of year, and the food is one of the best parts of it! Our family get-togethers are a smorgasbord of tantalizing delicacies – from the traditional turkey baked to perfection by my mom to the decadent pumpkin cheesecake made by my beloved (and very talented) sister-in-law. I crave the traditional dishes for days, eagerly anticipating that first mouth-watering bite. Have I got you hungry yet?=)
Since this is Thanksgiving week, I just knew I would have to post a recipe. Since my husband’s favorite is his mother’s Broccoli and Rice Casserole, I thought I would share it with all of you as well. Happy Eating!
2 packages of frozen broccoli
2 cups rice (premium white rice works best)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 1/2 cups mild shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. Butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Steam broccoli; set aside. Cook rice and fold in with broccoli in a large mixing bowl. Add soups, butter, and cheese (save about 1/4 cup of cheese for later). Spoon mixture into a 2 1/2 qt. baking pan. Top with remaining cheese. Cover with foil (or you’ll burn the cheese). Bake for 45 minutes.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! It is so simple but very yummy! What are your favorite recipes? I would love to hear from you!
