It always amazed me that this simple recipe could make potatoes taste so good. Mom liked to make them for Easter because they were more special than ordinary baked potatoes. —Ruth Seitz, Columbus Junction, Iowa
Since I enjoy spending time with my guests rather than alone in the kitchen, this one's a favorite dish...I've served it with ham, pork and turkey.
With its color and eye appeal, I call on it on special days like Christmas or Easter when I'm cooking for a crowd. I'd also recommend it for potlucks.
Although my husband and I were "city kids" both born in Toronto, we have been farming since we were married. We have two grown daughters.
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
People in my part of Tennessee love potato dishes! This one tickles my fancy so much I couldn't help sharing it.
I'm a widow with five grown children and eight grandchildren. I make these potatoes when they come to visit for family suppers and holidays. Most often, I serve them alongside meat and vegetables—but, with the cheese, they could be a main dish all by themselves.
"SOME of us grandchildren didn't like cooked carrots, but we all dug into this Carrot Casserole. Maybe that was because is tastes more like a stuffing than a vegetable dish. Whatever the reason, we kids forgot we were eating carrots whenever we enjoyed this casserole."
A friend served this casserole at a dinner party, and I had to ask for the recipe. I've made it for friends and relatives on a number of holidays and other special occasions since. The recipe is perfect for parties, because it can be prepared early in the day and baked later on when the guests arrive.
"WE LIVE in "The Garden State', and our produce is top-notch in season. Spring is the time of year to enjoy asparagus, and I prepare it several times a week. This is one of my favorite ways to use asparagus."
People always go back for seconds whenever I serve these rich, creamy potatoes. This casserole is a snap to fix using quick convenient packaged ingredients. It travels well,too. — Susan Auten, Dallas, Georgia
