Great recipe but way more work than needed. I cut up the velveeta into chunks and placed them in my casserole dish. Then I poured in the two cans of soup and 3/4 c. milk. I put the casserole dish in the oven at 350 and let the cheese melt. Once it was melted, I took the casserole dish out of the oven, stirred the contents until well mixed and added the rice, broccoli, and chopped onion..I omitted the celery. I cooked it for about 30 minutes on 350. It was a big hit.

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before trying this dish! My mom and husband are veteran broccoli rice casserole lovers and thought this dish was exactly like it should be. It is a bland dish but that's what broccoli rice casseroles are. The only alteration I made was using milk instead of water and it turned out exactly as it should have. I, too, thought it was a bit runny before baking but Mom said, "it will bake fine," and it did. Personally, I like a more flavorful dish so next time, I will add seasoned salt and maybe some garlic. More traditional broccoli rice casserole lovers will want this recipe as is, though! Mama

If yours turned out mushy or runny, it is because 15 minutes is definitely not long enough to cook it. It is a typo and should read 45 minutes. The correct cook time is noted at the top (Cook Time: 45 Minutes).
