Homemade Rice-a-Roni in two flavors: Broccoli Au Gratin & Mixed Veggie.
Homemade Broccoli Cheddar Rice A Roni (3/15 Note: this was really fantastic. The only thing I would change would be to cook rice for 8 minutes and then add broccoli. The rice cooked way faster than expected and at the 10 minute mark all of the water was absorbed, so the broccoli did not cook as much as I would have liked. This could be my stove, though. Used 1 tbsp of butter instead of two and added the following spices; 1/8 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/16 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp parsley, dash Italian seasoning. This recipe is a keeper!)
