Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

I found the recipe for this comforting broccoli cheddar casserole some time ago on the Budget Bytes blog. I was interested in a casserole with rice to switch things up from pasta or potatoes. I have made it as it was originally posted but also have added things like leftover ham or chicken. My family cleans their plates when we have this dish! http://www.budgetbytes.com/2015/03/broccoli-cheddar-casserole/
Budget Bytes is a great blog with budget conscious but tasty food. We have enjoyed many recipes so I feel confident recommending the site to anyone looking for great meal ideas. I love her baked oatmeal recipes! The author does not post nutrition information but I generally don’t have any trouble fitting the dishes into my calorie goal when I log them on My Fitness Pal.
Speaking of My Fitness Pal, before making dinner tonight I looked at my food diary and noticed I could use a bit more protein in my day. We had some turkey in the freezer so I pulled it out. I mixed 14 oz of cubed turkey with the casserole. That is my only change to the original recipe today.
This is totally something you could prep in advance and pop in the oven when you get home from work.

I was thinking about a tip for cooks trying to cut down on nibbling and tasting too much. I started chewing mint gum while cooking and it works really well for me. Give it a try!
