What is to follow is a recipe that I remember absolutely loving when I was a child. My mom made it earlier this week and it was just as delicious as I remember. Now that we’re living in the US and can buy processed cheese food (Velveeta) I too can make this part of my repertoire. I’m writing it here so that I don’t forget it.
Broccoli Cheese Casserole
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
3/4 lb velveeta cheese
1 pkg chopped broccoli
2 cups cooked rice
Saute onions and celery. Add soups and cheese. Cook broccoli and mix with above. Cook rice and place as lining for dish. Pour vegetable and soup mixture over rice - sprinkle with paprika. Bake 375 for 10-20 minutes until bubbly and brown.
Optional: add shredded chicken to rice mixture.
We’re having leftovers tonight and I’m going to snag the rest of this. Processed cheese food, gotta love it!
