RECIPE: Broccoli Rice and Cheese Casserole

I tried this recipe this weekend. I found it to be rather delicious, but I have heard that one can use a jar of cheese whiz in place of the shredded cheese. Has anyone ever tried doing it that way?

I think even the most finicky of kids will like this recipe.

I don't know about the one you linked, but I've made the one that follows, and you are absolutely correct - the kids love it.

I am going to substitute the cream of chicken soup for the cream of mushroom instead, next time that I make it. I might also try using American cheese in place of the cheddar. I wonder how swiss cheese would substitute? I used to make a delicious spinach quiche using swiss and it was terrific!!
