A quick make ahead dish good for buffets or potlucks. Another favorite of mine from the Benjamin Franklin award winning cookbook of midwestern U.S. origin called "Hollyhocks and Radishes."
- 12 carrots, peeled and sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons onions, minced
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- fresh ground pepper, to taste
- 2 cups low-fat milk
- 1⁄2 lb swiss cheese or 1⁄2 lb jarlsberg cheese, thinly sliced
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
- Cook carrots in lightly salted water until just tender, about 10 minutes, and drain.
- Melt butter in medium saucepan, add onion and saute until soft. Stir in flour with whisk and cook 1 minute. Whisk in seasonings and milk, cooking until thickened.
- In a buttered, shallow 2 quart casserole, place half of carrots, all of the cheese then rest of carrots. Pour sauce over all and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake uncovered 25 minutes.
I wish I could give this a better review, but we just didn't like it. I made it for (cdn) Thanksgiving. It seemed to need more flavour and less carrots, maybe it would be better with a few different vegetables.
I really enjoyed this casserole. I used swiss in one casserole and chedder in the other. I made a really big servings of this and put them in mini freezer containers when I was done so I can re heat them and pack in lunches as needed. Great recipe, made for ZWT 3!
Just lovely. Not diet food for sure! I had a ton of carrots to use up, and this did the trick. I love the combination of the carrots ans swiss cheese. The white sauce and breadcrumbs were fab as well. Served this as the main dish with a green side salad. Thanks for posting this, would make it again.
