I have a mental block for side dishes. These are dishes that I think I can handle cooking and would compliment the style of cooking my family enjoys. I don't think I have actually tried many of them but I have the best intentions!
This is something my grandma made at Christmas. I don't know where she originally got the recipe but the recipe card for it has her handwriting on it. I call them German Carrots because grandma's grandparents came over from Germany. My family mostly eats these at Christmas and we usually fight over who gets the little bit that's leftover. It's a really good barbecued carrot recipe.
My late Aunt Donna used to frequent farmer's markets during various local produce seasons, and she would find the best local recipes whenever she did. This one was on the table every Thanksgiving once she discovered it. My family normally prefers sweet potatoes unadulterated (wrapped in foil and simply baked), but we always empty the dish when this casserole is made. Prep and cook time do not reflect time for cooking sweet potatoes.
The breading & baking recipe is from Ce Ce on recipezaar. She used on green tomatoes. They are to die for. I decided to use on eggplant and use my own tomato mushroom gravy or sauce. I think my eggplant is great with Ce Ce's breading recipe.
OH my! These are the BEST carrots in the world. My grandma makes these for every occasion. I usually end up hoarding the carrots for myself. haha. They are my FAVORITE! If your kids won't eat veggies, try this dish! I would suggest doubling the recipe, because they are so good! Can't get much easier than this!
I adapted this from an Amish recipe. I love them sprinkled with a little confectioner's sugar and served with maple syrup for breakfast. You can also serve them as a side dish. The yield is approximate. Depends on how large or small you make them, and how much corn you put into it.
