Delicious, different way to eat your carrots. Followed recipe as written. Only problem I had was with mashing the carrots. Used my hand potato masher and it seemed to take forever to get out all the lumps. Next time I think I'll try my food processor. DH and DD enjoyed this very much.

This was unbelievably delicious! I made it exactly as written with the exception of the bread crumbs (I'm not overly fond of breadcrumb toppings). The vanilla does, indeed make a difference. Thanks, Bergy for another winner!
