Cheesey Scalloped Carrots

I just have to share this recipe that I got from my friend Sandi. It was a big hit at our Bible Study Potluck Dinner. This is such a good casserole to bring to a potluck. It is an excellent vegetable side dish with cheesey deliciousness.
  • 8 cups of sliced carrots
  • 1/4 cup of butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups of grated low fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of crushed garlic croutons or equal amount of bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted margarine
  1. Cook carrots in salted boiling water until tender.
  2. Drain.
  3. Melt a 1/4 cup of butter in a separate sauce pan.
  4. Add onion and cook until clear and soft.
  5. Mix in the flour, salt, pepper, and celery salt
  6. Stir in mustard and milk until it boils and thickens.
  7. In a 9x13 inch pan, layer half of the carrots, half of the grated cheese, and another layer of carrots and grated cheese.
  8. Pour over all of the sauce.
  9. Top with bread crumbs and melted butter, adding garlic to taste, or use crushed croutons.
  10. Bake uncovered at 350 for 25-30 minutes until browned and heated through.

  4. This is a recipe that we've done for quite a few years. It is a staple for every family gathering. If there's no Carrot Casserole, there are some pretty loud complaints.

  5. Just finished assembling this delcious looking casserole, and about to throw it into the oven. Can hardly wait to try it.

  6. I'm definably trying this and I forgot to say happy birthday to your friend Sandi. Sooo, HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATIE.... See, I had to come back to look at the recipe again.... JB

  7. What a wonderful idea!! I've scalloped all sorts of veggies, but never carrots, you are brilliant!!

  8. My mother made them with buttered bread that was cubed, instead of crushed croutons.
