If you have leftover rice and want to turn it into something really special, make this broccoli rice casserole!


  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne
  • 3 cups of whole milk
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup of parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 package of processed melting cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar
  • 8 small heads of broccoli
  • 2 cups of cooked white rice


  1. Start by melting the butter in a large pot and saute the onion and garlic in it until the onion is soft.
  2. Add in the flour to thicken along with the mustard powder and cayenne and whisk.
  3. Turn the heat up, add in the milk, and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Add in the cream cheese, parmesan, salt and pepper to taste, and the paprika.
  5. Then, add in the rest of the cheese and the broccoli to the pot.
  6. Put half of the rice into the bottom of a casserole, followed by half the broccoli mixture, the rest of the rice, and the rest of broccoli. If you want it to be extra cheesy, add a little more shredded cheese on top of everything.
  7. Cook for 30 minutes at 350 F and serve!
