In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a family favorite, Cheesy Broccoli-Rice Casserole. This makes a *large* casserole, so it is great for holiday get-togethers and for potluck dinners! Plus, the taste is fantastic!
  Frozen chopped broccoli 8 Ounce, cooked according to package directions for 3 minutes in 1 inch rapidly boiling water
  White minute rice 2 Cup (32 tbs), cooked according to package directions in 2 cups boiling water, turn off heat, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes
  Boiling water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Eggs 2 , well beaten
  Milk 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (May Use Canola Oil)
  Condensed cream of chicken soup 10 3⁄4 Ounce (1 Can)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped with an electric kitchen chopper
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 16 Ounce (4 Cups)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Garlic salt To Taste
  Cooking spray 1 (For Baking Dish)

First, cook and drain the 8 oz. broccoli and cook and fluff the 2 cups minute rice, each according to package directions. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 well-beaten eggs, 2/3 cup milk, 1/2 cup oil, 10 3/4 oz. can of cream of chicken soup, and 1 medium onion, chopped. Blend well. Now, quickly add the cooked and drained 8 oz. broccoli and the cooked and fluffed 2 cups minute rice. Stir quickly to incorporate the broccoli and rice with the egg mixture, without cooking the eggs. Next, sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste on the casserole mixture. Again, blend thoroughly. Spray a 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray, and spoon or pour the casserole mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 325 degrees. Check on the casserole after 1 hour, and, if it is brown and bubbly, remove it from the oven. It may take up to 1 1/2 hours for the casserole to cook, so just watch it carefully, if you leave it in the oven longer than an hour. Remove the casserole from the oven and serve immediately to a crowd of hungry people!!!
