Cheesy Rice with Kielbasa and Broccoli

In need of a super easy dinner idea? This Cheesy Rice with Kielbasa & Broccoli is a family favorite!

Hi there! It’s Jennie from The Diary of a Real Housewife bringing you another easy recipe. This Cheesy Rice with Kielbasa and Broccoli quickly became a family favorite. I used a little trick to get my kids to love it that works every time, a new name! While I call this meal Cheesy Rice with Kielbasa and Broccoli. When telling the kids what’s for dinner it’s cheesy rice and hot dogs. I use this trick often. When we go out for mexican a quesadilla becomes a Mexican grilled cheese. I would even call a fried egg an egg pancake, and my oldest who doesn’t like eggs would eat it up! A teaspoon of syrup may have helped also =)


No matter what you call it you are sure to love this Cheesy Rice with Kielbasa and Broccoli. To make it all simple I made everything in the same pot. I started with my broccoli and kielbasa in a large pot and boiled it until the broccoli was soft. You can use another pan to make your rice, but if you hate dishes as much as I do then just set aside the broccoli and kielbasa and use this pan to cook your rice.


Once your rice is cooked add your kielbasa and broccoli back into your pan. I seasoned it with garlic powered, salt, and pepper. Then add the shredded cheese.


Once everything melts together it’s ready to serve!
