I love these as a side dish!  Broccoli, cheese and rice are just meant to be put together!  There are so many great ways to play around with this recipe!  Add chicken to make it a great entree for kids, play with different flavors of cheese, add some peppers or herbs!

I have made these many times and they’re always a hit!  Once in a while, I will even fold up 1/2 of a cheese slice and put it in the middle!  Be certain you grease your muffin pan very well or they will stick!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of cooked rice

  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix topping ingredients and set aside.
  3. Chop broccoli into small pieces. Place in boiling water and cook just until tender crisp (about 2 minutes). Drain & Cool.
  4. Mix broccoli and remaining ingredients in a bowl.
  5. Grease a muffin tin very well and press about 1/2 cup of rice mixture into each well. Sprinkle with topping and gently press so breadcrumbs will adhere.
  6. Bake 20-23 minutes. Gently run a knife around the edges of each broccoli rice cup to loosen.
  7. Serve hot.
