2 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
1 Cup MINUTE White Rice (about two bags)
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli, cooked, well drained (Next time I will use 2 medium head of FRESH Broccoli, cooked, & Drained *I just love fresh so much better)
1 cup CHEEZ WHIZ (which is about 1/2 of a 15oz jar)
*You can put bread crumbs on top if you want but I decided not too*


1. Cook Onion in skillet w/ butter til tender. Then set aside.

2. Melt Soup & Cheez Whiz together.

3. Mix soup & cheese mixture w/ onions & cooked broccoli. Then Pour over rice in casserole dish. Stir Well.

4.Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly & rice is cooked.
