My mom and I developed this recipe to see if there was a carrot dish that even people who don't care for carrots would enjoy. So far, I haven't met anyone who hasn't liked this casserole. —Laurie Heward, Fillmore, Utah

"I really enjoyed this! My husband thought it was just so-so, but whatever, this is my TOH account!!! I used olive oil mayo and that worked fine. I had leftover baby carrots and found this recipe. I cut it in half and that works fine. I didn't grate the onion, just chopped finely. To get buttered bread crumbs, I simply added some melted butter to dry bread crumbs. I'll be making this again for sure."

"I have been making this for 30 years and it is delicious. I do not add the cheddar and it is a fantastic dish. It's always a family favorite."

"I had some baby carrots that had to get used up and wanted something different. This recipe fit the bill and I will make this again. I like the zing of the horseradish."
