Broccoli Cheesy Rice (Grandma’s Recipe)

First things first… How about dem Redskins!?


3 in a row – We are on fire!

All day I was brainstorming ideas to make healthy tailgating recipes for last nights game. But then, I made nothing. Instead I thought I’d share with you one of my Grandma’s (or possibly great granny’s) recipes!

Not only is this the easiest side dish you will EVER make but it’s also a people pleaser.

5 ingredients. 1 dish. It doesn’t get better than that.

It’s a good thing we only enjoy this three times a year (Easter, Thanksgiving & Christmas) because it’s definitely not healthy. Like Julia Child’s says – Everything in moderation!
