Ingredients
  1. 3 cups fresh or thawed broccoli (chopped)
  2. 3 cups rice (pre-cooked)
  3. 2 1/2 c. chicken broth
  4. 1 1/2 c. milk
  5. 3/4 c. flour
  6. 10 oz. shredded cheddar cheese (I prefer white extra-sharp)
  7. 1 small onion (chopped)
  8. 3 tbsp. butter
  9. 1/2 tsp. salt
  10. 1/4 tsp. pepper
  11. 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
Instructions
  1. Pour chicken broth in a large saucepan and bring to a low boil. Whisk in flour and then slowly whisk in milk. Continue whisking until the mixture is smooth and thick (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
  2. Saute onions in butter until soft. Reduce heat to low and toss in broccoli, rice, and about 2/3 of the cheese. Stir until the cheese is mostly melted.
  3. Add your seasonings and then transfer into a 9×13″ baking dish. Smooth in the dish and then top with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake at 350ºF (uncovered) for 1 hour.
Notes
  1. Make as directed above, but freeze before baking. Allow the broccoli rice casserole to thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then cook as directed.
  2. It reheats nicely as well.
