Scalloped Carrots Casserole Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 12 medium carrots, sliced 1/4 inch thick (about 4 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 slices whole wheat bread, cut into small cubes


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place 1 in. of water in a large saucepan; add carrots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 7-9 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
  • 2. In another saucepan, saute onion in 1/4 cup butter. Stir in flour, salt, mustard, celery salt and pepper until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened.

"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."

"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!"
