While it was easy it didn't have much flavor. Maybe adding some hot sauce garlic or herbs would have given it the extra kick it needed. May try again with some revisions.

I made this for a Christmas dinner side dish this year and got rave reviews. I did tweak it a little...I sauteed the onion first chopped up the broccoli a little and increased the Ritz Crackers to about a 1/2 sleeve. I also used sharp cheddar for a stronger flavor and added a tablespoon of garlic salt and used low sodium mushroom soup instead

THANK YOU for a recipe that calls for REAL CHEESE and not process cheese spread or Velveeta or any other goo that's not real cheese! I had no crackers so I left them off (DH is gluten intolerant anyway). That said I also had to make my own cream of mushroom soup (couldn't take the chance that Campbell's has wheat in it) but that was no problem. I had leftover rice and broccoli flowerets and onion cook in minutes in the microwave so I basically just stirred everything together and heated it up. Thanks for the inspiration!

Loved this casserole. I made it as a side dish with our pork chops and it was great! The crunch of the Ritz on top really made this dish stand out. I didn't have enough cheddar on hand but it was still really good. I did however cook the rice separately as we do not use instant rice-therefore i omitted the water. I will be making this casserole again!!

This darn broccoli casserole was REALLY good!! My tweaks: I cooked the rice first and replaced the water with milk used reduced calorie cream of chicken instead of mushroom used 1/2 sleeve of wheat ritz crackers and about a 1 and 1/2 cup of cheese instead of 2. I also added a little pepper and garlic salt to the mix. AWESOME!!:)

I had planned to eat leftovers the next day...but there weren't any!! I added 1 can cream of celery soup substitued milk for the water and used fresh brocolli (2 stalks) instead of frozen. I added some Italian spice for flavor and cut the cheese in half....my husband asked if we could have it for T-Day!!!!

Good and easy recipe. I'm the guy that is always designated to bring paper plates and napkins to the family get togethers. So when I brought this broccoli casserole everyone was nervous. Turned out to be a hit. One family member said it was the best she's had. I made a few changes...substituted milk for water and increased the amount of milk by 1/2 cup...and doubled the amount of crackers and butter for the topping.

I use cheddar cheese soup instead of the mushroom soup and 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup milk. This ones a keeper. Fast and easy to put together.
