Easy Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole
Easy and cheesy, this is truly the best Broccoli Rice Casserole!

The flavorful side dish is delicious alongside a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, a ham on Christmas, or a roast chicken for your next Sunday supper. You can even add chicken or ham and turn it into a weeknight entrée!
