We enjoyed this very much. It sounded like an interesting combination of ingredients that I figured my kids would love, and I was right. I used the 1/3 cup of brown sugar, but it wasn't a "firmly-packed" 1/3 cup. The casserole isn't dripping with too much sauce; it's just right. This will be a regular at my house. Thanx!
My non carrot eating kids gobbled these little sweet carrots right up. I will definitely keep this recipe handy and make it frequently. Would also be a hit at any pot luck.
Okay, so I burned the cheese! :oops: I'll have to make it again, but my parents are over and my dad tried it and loves it. We had a similar recipe years ago and I was trying to find it again. I think this comes close. I used Oyster crackers (a few handfuls, crushed) instead of Ritz.
