Ingredients

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))

Directions

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!!!
