Mom's Carrot Casserole Recipe

Mom's Carrot Casserole Recipe

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
