It's nice to have a reliable side dish like this that pairs well with any entree. A friend shared the recipe with me several years ago, and I use it often. —Opan Snell, Jamestown, Ohio

"This has become one of my new favorite side dishes. It is so easy to make and really brightens up the plate. I cannot stand carrot recipes that call for brown sugar, or any other sweet ingredients added to them - carrots are sweet enough in my opinion. The butter with the seasoned salt and pepper is PERFECT. I didn't have chives on hand, so I added some parsley, but I would love to try these with chives as well."

"My family normally does not like cooked carrots, but I decided to try this as I had no other fresh vegetables in the house. It was an immediate success! Even the carrot hater loved them. I have made this recipe again and changed the chives to savory and again to rosemary, the family liked all the different herb changes. I also reduced the water by half. Great recipe!"

"I placed the wet carrot slices in a covered glass dish and microwaved them at full power for 10 minutes and saved vitamins and time. I didn't use the full amount of butter and they still turned out great. I liked the seasonings on the carrots and they make them taste better than just the standard butter, salt, and pepper."
