After my mother passed away, I found this recipe of hers. It's a crowd-pleasing side dish with a comforting sauce and a pretty, golden crumb topping.—Cheryl Holland, Ortonville, Michigan


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 quarts milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons celery salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 6 pounds carrots, diced and cooked
  • 2-1/2 pounds shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 cups crushed butter-flavored crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir butter and flour until smooth and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Gradually add milk and lemon juice; cook and stir until thickened. Add celery salt and pepper; mix well. Remove from heat.
  2. In four greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dishes, layer half the carrots, sauce, cheese and crackers. Repeat layers. Bake, uncovered, 45-50 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serve immediately.
