Holiday Recipe Spectacular - Broccoli & Cheese Casserole

Rice, Broccoli, & Cheese Casserole. Photo by under12parsecs    THE PERFECT SIDE DISH TO ANY MAIN COURSE!
My mother in law got me started on this dish, and now I make it every year.  It's from the south so you know it's packed with calories and fat...however it's absolutely delicious and for Christmas?  Who cares!  Indulge!

1 Bag of Frozen Broccoli
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Large Onion or 1 Medium Onion - chopped
Bag of Microwavable Brown Rice
Jar of Cheez Whiz (the jar!)
1/3 Cup of Milk
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup

Melt butter in medium skillet, then brown the onions.  Add Broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, cheez whiz, milk and cooked rice according to directions.  Once it's all mixed together and creamy, pour into baking dish and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbily.
