Step 1: Finalist / Runner Up!

I just found out I won Runner up in the Safeway Tastier Holiday Recipe Contest!  

How awesome is that!

Step 2: Supplies

Ingredients:
  • 1 pk. Frozen Broccoli or equivalent (1 lb.) in fresh
  • 4 oz. Cheese Whiz or other type of cheese (I ended up using the whole jar of 15 oz. and it was a great choice.)
  • 3/4 cup Margarine
  • 1 pk. of Uncle Ben's white and wild rice
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

Optional Ingredients I chose to leave out:
  • 1 med. chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup Slivered almonds

Equipment:
  • Dishes to make rice
  • Casserole Dish or Dutch Oven + Cover
  • Cutting Board and Knife (if fresh broccoli)
  • Spoon
  • Stovetop Pan big enough to hold cooked onion, broccoli, soup, and cheese (I used the Dutch Oven for this.)
  • Oven
  • Stovetop

Total cooking time will be the amount of time it takes to cook rice (half an hour for me) and baking time (half an hour): approximately 1 hour.

Step 3: Prepare Everything

Cook rice according to the package.

While the rice is cooking, cut up the broccoli and set it aside (if using fresh).  Also, when the rice is almost done, you can start cooking up the onion in the butter (if you are using it).

I make something similar to this dish and use some of the leftover turkey. A nice salad and some homemade rolls and any pie that's left for desert. What a feast!

Sounds like a good meal to me!
brings back fond memory of lunch as a small child- bowls of broccoli and cheese or butter

(yet since an in counter that included five halves of caterpillars found in my broccoli......)

yet this looks so yummy, i may have to try this!!!
If you use fresh broccoli or any head of anything brascca : Take a large bowl of cold tap water and add a cup of salt to it.. if you have heads of broccoli drop them in for as short at 15 mins as long as an hr. For cabbage and things like that half or quarter and then put in the cold water and salt solution.. It kills the bugs or makes them leave the produce so you can cook it. Don't leave longer than an hr or you will start the brining/pickling process that you might not like the taste of in a meal.
Caterpillars in your broccoli?!?!
(shudder) yep..there were HALF of five of them...iiiick

Looks good !! why did you leave Onions out , don't like them ? beside drooling over my keyboard before looking at ingredients i had a thought of french cut sauted onions , or those crispy fried onions people put on casseroles ? I'm Trying this !! Thanks

Yeah. When I can, I avoid using onions, but I wanted to still include it for everyone that does like them :)

Broccoli and a cheese sauce is a semi-favorite here. The rice is an interesting twist I'll have to try

Definitely! It is really good!
