Ditch the baking dish and make this easy skillet broccoli, cheese and rice casserole. Cooking the casserole in a skillet keeps the flavors and textures fresh--no mushy, sad broccoli! Serve this easy side with baked chicken for a family-pleasing healthy dinner that's ready in just 30 minutes. It would also be a great addition to your Thanksgiving spread or a party buffet.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler and position a rack 6 to 8 inches from the heat source. Melt butter in a large high-sided ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook, stirring often, until browned and tender, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and thyme; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add rice, stirring to coat and break up clumps.

  • Whisk broth, sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl until smooth. Whisk in cornstarch. Add the mixture to the pan; stir to combine. Stir in broccoli; let the mixture come to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook until the broccoli is bright green and tender, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle with cheese.

  • Transfer the skillet to the oven; broil until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes. Serve hot.

My husband and I loved it. I made it as a vegetarian main course rather than a side. I used a little extra sour cream in place of the mayo. I recommend having all of the ingredients prepped before you start, because some of the steps go quickly. The kids didn't love the mushrooms. But I don't think it would be as good if you omitted them. Read More
