My absolute fave!
Broccoli Rice Casserole
2 (10 oz) packages frozen chopped broccoli
2 cups rice, cooked (I use jasmine)
1 (10.75 oz) cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 oz) cream of chicken soup
1 1/4 cup water
16-32 oz extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated (I do this by taste, last time I used 32 oz of cheddar)
1 TBS butter
1 large onion, diced
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook broccoli and rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium high heat. Saute onion until soft.
3. Reduce heat to low, add soups, and water. Gradually stir in cheese until melted. Be careful that the cheese doesn't burn.
4. Take saucepan off heat and stir in broccoli and rice. Season with salt and pepper and add more cheese if desired.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until topping is bubbly and lightly browned.

It's great kads! dh's grandmother made this on holidays, after hearing about how fantastic hers was, I made my own. He liked it so much better! I like to use the sharp cheddar and good quality rice, this casserole usually calls for minute rice and velveeta. I'm sure Cade will like it, I can even get Aidan to eat the broccoli and he doesn't eat anything green! You can also make it a few days early, if you need to, and just stick it in the oven for about 60 minutes.

Cora, my recipe is almost identical to yours, but I don't cook my broccoli before. I like the crunch it has from just the cooking as part of the casserole.

When I lived on the bayous, we ate rice instead of noodles or potatoes. Anything with a sauce or juice went over rice. You'd be surprised how good liver and onion gravy is over rice.
Dirty rice was, and is, one of my favorites. Like a lot of other Cajun recipes, you use whatever you have.
Aunt Gert used long grain white rice, chicken giblets, pork sausage, garlic, onions, garlic, S&P, and a pinch of Cayenne pepper.
My more sophisticated MIL, who'd been transplanted to Dallas, used the Uncle Ben's Long Grain and wild rice mix, chicken livers, sausage, mushrooms, all the other stuff, plus some herbs.
My husband and I were young, and didn't have two nickels to rub together. Ms. Bourdice's maid often knocked at our door with a bowl of dirty rice, gumbo, or jambalya. Naomi did the cooking, and Ms. Bourdice's son loved to hunt and trap, so I got some pretty interesting looking dishes. But they were always delcious, and we were so glad to have them.
I can say that raccon isn't bad in a gumbo, as long as it has chicken and good smoked sausage. That was the darkest gumbo I ever saw.

One thing Naomi made that I wish I could duplicate was her crab bisque. The sauce was pink. We didn't eat rice with that one...it was served with good crusty French bread.
The only time I have ever eaten anything like it was at a very expensive gourmet restaurant about 30 miles down the road from here.
