Make-Ahead Baked Carrots

Recipe by puppitypup

I love cooked carrots and I love creamed veggies, so this is one of my favorites. Originally from Esther Shank's Mennonite cookbook, tweaked a bit by me.

Pretty tasty. I used shredded carrots - because I had some extra from another project - and cooked them about 5 min in the boiling water. I also didn't have cream so just used regular 2% milk. I also used italian bread crumbs. Thanks
