  1. Cook broccoli and rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, and 1 1/4 cups water. Gradually stir in cheese until melted. Be careful that the cheese doesn't burn.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir celery and onion until soft.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, rice, soup and cheese mixture, celery and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, until bubbly and lightly brown.

I didn't quite understand the reason for all the water and actually didn't use any of it, nor did I use the processed cheese. Instead, I added the soups right from the cans along with shredded c...

TASTY! Plus, very easy and quick to make. To make a complete meal, I added 1 lb of boiled/cooked cubed chicken. After boiling the chicken until cooked, I then fryed the cubes with a dash of le...
