"Turned out very good, even when I cut back on the seasoning salt and used fat free milk instead of evaporated to make it more low cal and healthy. I would make this again!"

"We tried this recipe tonight for our family which includes two toddlers--one of which refuses to eat his vegetables. Not only did he eat these creamed carrots--he was shoveling them in his mouth! I may have to make the sauce for his veggies from now on. :) The rest of us also enjoyed this new twist on carrots. We substituted whole milk with a little melted butter for the evaporated milk, and it was still delicious!"
