Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole

I had planned on making some steaks on the grill and I was in search of a side dish. I was going to baked potatoes, but we needed a vegetable. I usually just open up a can of something and warm it up in the microwave, but we were having steak! I wanted something that would match with the quality of that delicious cut of meat. That’s when I remembered my Mom’s broccoli and rice casserole that she used to make us all of the time. That was going to be perfect.

Her recipe was just like this one from Spend With Pennies, and I learned how to make it many, many years ago. I wasn’t quite sure what my kids were going to think of it, but I tried it on them anyways.

Everyone at my dinner table really enjoyed this side dish. I think it went faster than the steak did! That cheesy and gooey gooey deliciousness was hard to resist!

Quick Tip: Make this a complete meal by adding in some chicken.
