Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place carrots and onions in a pot with enough lightly salted water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain, and spread 1/2 the carrots and onions in a baking dish. Cover with 3/4 cup cheese, layer with remaining carrots and onions, and top with remaining cheese.
  3. In a saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter and mix in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk until thickened, and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the carrots, onions, and cheese in the baking dish.
  4. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small pot, and mix in bread crumbs. Sprinkle evenly in the baking dish.
  5. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until bubbly and lightly browned.

This had a great flavor, but the sauce seemed too thick. It was almost a paste, and it just stayed on top of the carrots and onions. I made this for my husband and another couple, and we all agreed that it tasted great. I think next time I'll add an extra 1/2 cup of milk or reduce the flour and butter to 2 tablespoons each. Thanks for sharing a new vegetable dish!

Very good. Sauce could have been made thinner and carrots cooked a bit longer. I'll try these couple things next time I make the recipe.

This was very easy to make and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I used a sweet onion, added a little more cheese than it called for & used Parmesan flavored bread crumbs. I'll definitely be making this again!
