Scalloped Carrots Casserole

A cookbook my husband gave me as a wedding gift included this recipe-he remembers having the dish as a child at church dinners. Now I make it whenever I need a special vegetable side. It's rich and cheesy even after reheating.

    Umm,Umm good ! Made this for a family gathering. Some attending didn't like carrots however, I convinced them to try it. Needless to say, They all loved it. I had to make several copies of the receipe , even for the ones that "didn't like carrots". This casserole is bound to be served often at my house.

    This was absolutely delicious! I had this in my recipe box for a while now and recently made it. Why did I wait so long?!?!? I can see making this many more times in the future.

    Wanted to try this casserole but was in a super hurry so here are the changes I made:I used half of a medium onion sauteed in 1/4 of butter and:I used two envelopes of White Sauce Mix and prepared according to package directions but added the ground mustard and only an 1/8 of a teaspoon of celery salt and added an 1/8 of a teaspoon celery seed. I also used croutons instead of bread cut into cubes.Next time I will use french fried onion rings for a different flavor twist topping.Even with my changes this was super good!
