If you’re looking for a comforting dish perfect for weeknight dinners, look no further than a broccoli casserole. That classic, sometimes maligned veggie gets a makeover by being combined with melted cheese, bread crumbs and rice.

How to Make Your Food Last Longer

Believe it or not, there are plenty of amazing dishes you can make from frozen food items, and broccoli casserole is certainly one of them. Whether you make a classic version of the dish or choose to top it with crispy tater tots, there’s no denying that broccoli casserole is a recipe for all ages.

The best part about casseroles is that they’re easy to make and typically yield enough food for a few days, making meal prep a breeze. And a broccoli casserole is no different — the dish calls for frozen broccoli rather than fresh, so you can just pop open the bag and toss them straight into your baking dish.

It’s a no-frills dinner that takes less than one hour to make. If you’re cooking for a crowd, serve this as a side dish to go with baked chicken.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s great for leftovers. But before storing the dish for later, make sure you check out our guide for how long foods last in the fridge and freezer.
