MY FAVORITE BROCCOLI RICE CASSEROLE

This is the broccoli casserole that has been popular in my family for many, many years.

1/2 stick oleo, use part to grease 2-qt baking dish
1 small onion, chopped
1 square box frozen chopped broccoli
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2-in square of Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 cup minute rice, cooked according to pkg directions

Bake at 375 degrees.

Melt oleo in pan, add chopped onion. Cook over low heat until onion is transparent. Add the broccoli and continue to cook just until broccoli is separated. Add soup and cheese; mix well. Add the minute rice. Mix well and pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Note: This casserole can be made up to a day ahead, refrigerate before baking then add 5 to 10 minutes to the baking time.
