  • 1/3 cup onion chopped
  • 1/3 cup celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup oleo oleo is an old name for margarine. Butter will work for this recipe.
  • 1 cup minute rice uncooked
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup or Cream of Chicken
  • 1 cup water or milk or chicken broth
  • 8 ounce Cheez Whiz
  • 10 ounce box frozen broccoli Use broccoli florets, or broccoli pieces. A 12 ounce bag of broccoli works fine for this recipe.
  • Pam non-stick spray


  • Let the package of frozen broccoli partially thaw. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a fry pan, saute the onion and celery in the oleo (butter or margarine) until soft.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir together.
  • Turn into a 2-quart casserole pan which has been coated with Pam. Bake uncovered for 30 - 40 minutes.



This recipe is very old and calls for a box of frozen broccoli, which is hard to find. I have used a 12 ounce bag of broccoli florets and it works just fine.
If you can, choose a 2-quart casserole dish that is wider with low sides. As pictured in this article. Of course a deeper casserole dish will work fine, but the lower sides and wider base of a shallow baking dish helps the casserole cook quicker and more even.
