Rice & Broccoli Casserole
Grandma often made this delicious casserole when she had leftover steamed rice from her favorite Chinese carryout restaurant. She knew that cooked rice could be refrigerated for up to 1 week. This casserole was a great way to use up the rice and made the preparation even easier. Sometimes she even cooked an extra batch of rice and froze it for up to 3 months for quick future meals.
