"Old fashioned recipe from Esther Shank's Mennonite Cookbook. I love cooked carrots and I love creamed veggies, so this is one of my favorites. It's great for company too, because you can prepare it ahead of time and bake before dinner."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.

Step 2

Peel and slice carrots, cover with salted water and bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer, cooking for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in casserole dish.

Step 3

Meanwhile, saute onion in butter over medium heat until translucent. Add flour to onions, cooking a few minutes until flour turns golden.

Step 4

Then whisk in milk, a little at a time, stirring as you go. You may need to turn heat up to medium-high for this step.

Step 5

Add salt, sugar and dry mustard and stir again. Pour sauce over carrots.

Step 6

Combine bread crumbs and melted butter, sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

Step 7

If making ahead, cover and put in fridge, removing 2 hours before serving and increase bake time by 10 minutes or more.


No special items needed.

This was easy enough, but really lacked flavour. Also, how much is "1/4 onion"? I chose 1/4 cup, perhaps that was the problem with the lack of flavour. If I make this again I'll add more onion, some garlic, and definitely some additional seasonings. Only thing I did differently was to use fried onions instead of breadcrumbs on top.
