“This recipe was the 'birthday dinner' recipe that my husband requested from his mom when he was young. After she passed away, he thought the recipe was lost forever... Until I found it tucked away in one of her old cookbooks and made it for a surprise birthday present last year!”

I love this recipe!! I have made probably 15-20 times, I usually use fresh broccoli that I steam for about 5-10 min. (just a personal preference), and increase the rice to 1c. (which I cook in Chicken Stock instead of water, again personal preference) I prefer Cheze wiz over velvetta for this recipe, but have also used tostidos cheese sauce in a pinch, (it gives it a little zippier flavor) We love this as a side dish with chicken or pork chops, definately a keeper and in regular rotation in our house!

DELICIOUS!!! Made exactly according to recipe EXCEPT I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and doubled the rice to one full cup in 2 cups of water....it was absolutely perfect!!!! Not too dry..not too wet...just PERFECT!! Thank you for the new addition to my side dish collection! :)

Coming from a large family, we divide up the cooking when we all get together. I was assigned a vegetable to bring to Thanksgiving dinner, and decided to try this one. Everyone loved it!!! Even my wife, who normally doesn't like broccoli, cheese, onions or rice! She wants me to make some more. Mods: used 1 cup rice, used 3/4 of a medium onion, cooked rice in chicken broth, used 1/2 can cream of chicken & 1/2 can cream of mushroom, used a whole bag (16 oz, I think) of frozen cut broccoli. Great recipe!! Thanks to the poster and to the reviewers.
