Au Gratin Carrots Recipe

Our children would never eat carrots, and I could never find a recipe to please their taste buds. Then a friend shared this recipe, and sure enough...they loved it! Now they request this dish.—Sherry Johnson, Glenfield, North Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 2 pounds carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 4 ounces process American cheese, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 cups cornflakes, crushed


  • 1. Cook the carrots until crisp-tender; drain and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute onion in 3 tablespoons butter until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in the cheese just until melted. Add carrots and parsley.

"We usually make this for Easter and Thanksgiving. We're quite a group now so we double the recipe. The white sauce can be prepared ahead. Delicious!!"
