Mom’s Carrot Casserole

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

    Everyone loves this recipe, even those of us who dislike cooked carrots! It is so easy to make too. I use Velveeta cheese and it always comes out creamy and delicious!

    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.
