Cheesy Broccoli And Rice

Cheesy Broccoli And Rice

I refuse to call this a casserole. I just hate that term. Don’t ask why. Y’all know I’m weird. But, it’s rainy and I’m hungry! This is fast and yummy! I know, I know, there are a million variations of this. I make it many ways. This one is my favorite and I know it will be yours as well. I know my Cookies! You can add cooked chicken and make it a one skillet meal. And those that have been asking for more low carb options, you can 86 the rice, throw some cauliflower in a food processor, and sub that for the rice. You’re welcome. And I love you more.
