Description

This Cheesy Broccoli Delight Casserole blends tender broccoli florets with a creamy cheese sauce, topped with a crispy, golden breadcrumb crust. It’s an easy-to-make dish that brings comfort and joy to any dinner table.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the rice, stir, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the rice is tender.
  3. In a large, deep skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until it is evenly browned. Remove the bacon, drain it on paper towels, crumble, and set it aside. Using the same skillet, sauté the onions in the bacon drippings over medium heat until they are soft and translucent.
  4. In a 9×13 inch baking dish, combine the cooked rice, crumbled bacon, sautéed onions, broccoli, condensed soup, milk, and cheese sauce. Mix well to ensure everything is evenly distributed.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the casserole is bubbly.

Notes

  • – For a healthier twist, you can use reduced-fat mayonnaise and low-fat cheese.
    – Fresh broccoli can be used instead of frozen; steam it until tender before using.
    – Feel free to add other veggies like cauliflower or carrots for added variety.
