This delicious broccoli side dish cooks in the Instant Pot®. Although optional, I love transferring it to a casserole dish and broiling it to give it a crunchy golden cheese top. If you don't want to do this, then stir in all the cheese into the mixture.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Add chopped broccoli and stir to combine. If rice looks dry, add remaining 1/4 cup chicken broth. Close lid and seal the vent. Select steam and set the timer for 5 minutes.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Pour in half-and-half, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, pepper, and 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Grease an 8-inch square casserole dish.

  • Transfer broccoli mixture to the prepared casserole dish and top with remaining Cheddar cheese. Broil until cheese is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
