I’m constantly on a search to find delicious recipes to make healthy food that much more enjoyable! I saw this recipe and it looked really good so I thought I would give it a try.
I only had 1 head of broccoli, which weight out to be able 6oz. The original recipe it calls for thawed broccoli, I personally prefer to use fresh I rarely ever (okay, never) keep frozen vegetables in my house. So I steamed the vegetables just a bit, still hard and crunchy enough that once I baked them they wouldn’t be complete mush!
I put the eggs and ranch together then added the chicken broth, the rice, the broccoli, & the cheddar cheese. Put them in the oven at 375 and let them cook for 25 minutes and voila!
1 head lightly steamed fresh broccoli
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup white rice (I used 5-minute rice)
1/4 cup Ranch Dressing
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup grated cheese (I used old cracker barrel)
1/2 tsp salt and pepper – to taste
Boil rice. Move cooked rice onto a plate and spread it thin so it cools down quickly. Throw all the other ingredients in a bowl, but only mix in half of the cheese. Grease muffin tin. I got approx. 10 muffin tins. Put in the oven at 375 and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. See link before for original recipe.
