You all have heard me speak of my friend Louise Charles before. I should live so long and have the energy and good health that this sweet lady has. Louise is 91 and had her first cookbook signing a few weeks ago. They sold like hot cakes. All of her recipes are in her own beautiful handwriting.
I feel so honored to have her cookbook, and to have it signed by her, to me with love.
I chose this recipe because it is one I have made many, many times and one of my sister Sandy's favorites. Until recently I had not made this for more than 30 years.
I'm sharing this exactly as it appears in the cookbook.
Broccoli and Rice
1 small onion - 1 cup rice -
1 stick butter - 1 can cream of celery soup
1 (10-ounce) package of frozen broccoli - 1 (8 ounce) jar of Cheez Whiz
Saute onion in butter - cook rice. Cook drain and chop broccoli. Mix all ingredients together.
Put in baking dish. Bake at 325 degrees F. for 30 minutes of just until hot.
Thank you Louise for giving me back a long lost recipe that has always been a favorite at my house also.
