Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole

This is a yummy casserole that’s fancy enough for the Holiday table, but simple enough to put together as a weekday side dish. It’s full of flavor and more importantly very cheesy. It’s been a big hit with any kid I’ve served … even those that usually refuse to eat their broccoli.

A few weeks ago I made this with a mix of broccoli and cauliflower and it turned out yummy as well.

Note – if you don’t like mushrooms, leave out the mushrooms and replace the cream of mushroom soup with cream of broccoli, cream of potato, or even better, make your own cream of anything soup.

For a vegetarian version, leave out the bacon or replace it with some portabello mushrooms.
