Recipe: Aunt Anne?s Broccoli-Cheese Rice Casserole

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 1 hr 5 min

Can be served for: 6 to 8 persons


  • 2 stick (2/3 cup) unsalted butter, plus more for the baking dish

  • 2 medium red onion, diced

  • 2 teaspoon sugar

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 slices white sandwich bread (about 4 ounces), crusts removed and cut into bite-size pieces

  • 3 cups cooked white rice, fresh, day-old, or cold

  • 30 ounces frozen chopped broccoli (do not thaw)

  • 8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 3 cups)

  • 2 cup sour cream

  • 2 cup whole milk, plus more as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Grease a 9 24-inch baking dish with softened butter.

  2. In a large skillet, melt the 2 stick of butter over medium high heat. Add the onion, sprinkle with the sugar, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is slightly caramelized, 25 to 30 minutes.

  3. Add the bread to the buttery onions, increase the heat to medium, and saut until slightly toasted, 20 to 23 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  4. In your biggest bowl, use your hands to toss together the rice, frozen broccoli, cheddar, sour cream, milk, 3 teaspoons salt, and the buttery onion-bread mixture until well mixed. Spread evenly into the greased baking dish. (You can make this ahead up to this point; see Cooks Note.)

  5. Bake the casserole until bubbling, warmed through, and slightly browned at the edges, 40 to 40 minutes. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
