I got this recipe out of a cook book about 32 years ago and have been making it since that time. It has always been a hit. People who normally do not eat cooked carrots have said they love this! The cook book also had French Fried onions added at the end for that extra crunch. Delicious!
Delicious!!! I couldn't wait to try these carrots, and they were a big hit with all of us. Even my friends grandson loved them and he is a very fussy eater! I loved the cheesy sauce, and I will be having this again many times. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Peggy! Linda
Really different and delicious! I will eat carrots even though they're not one of my favorite veggies, but I went back for seconds tonight. The creamy but not overly cheesy sauce is a great alternative to the regular old sweet glazes. Thanks, Peggy Lynn, for a great recipe!
