Rich and cheesy, this casserole is the very best way to eat carrots. Pretty orange slices peek out from under a bed of buttery cracker crumbs. My mom loves to cook and share recipes. She picked this one up from a dear friend. -Gloria Grant, Sterling, Illinois

"No one in my family likes cooked carrots. I only tried this recipe when a co-worker brought it to work one day and let me sample it. My family loves it!"

"Very good. A nice change from sweet carrot recipes. However, I feel it needs something to make the cheese sauce creamier - mine came out a little dry. Maybe cream or sour cream. Will try next time."

"My family does not like cooked carrots but they LOVE this casserole. I add one small clove garlic as well. If there are leftovers, they don't last for long!"
