I need one more side dish for Christmas dinner. I would like to make a broccoli, rice and cheese thing in the crockpot. Adding rice would be a plus for picky eaters to get their fill.

Searching the internet really has not proven successful. If anyone has made something like this, please post. I do not have a problem with adding cream of something soup. Thanks so much.

Could you use this one and just leave out the ham? I think it would be fine.

Funny you should ask. My sister makes this one at Christmas and there's never any left. She makes a corn casserole in her crockpot too that I think is from the same website.

mine is

4 cups of cooked rice
a head of broccoli
cheese sauce.

tossed together, throw in the crockpot.
the heat setting would depend on when you are serving it.

I use cooked rice be cause I never good luck with uncooked rice in casseroles.

I've made this except with broccoli instead of shredded zucchini. It's really good. I don't have any advice on how to make it in the crock pot instead of on the stove top, though.

Sorry so late in replying to this - crazy busy here.

Kathy, thanks for posting the recipe that your sister uses. It is exactly what I was looking for.

One less thing to deal with - thanks again.
