  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the carrots and onion into a large saucepan and fill with about 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil, then steam over medium heat until carrots are tender enough to pierce with a fork, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sugar and cheese. Stir in the carrots and onion until evenly coated. Transfer to a casserole dish. Top with crumbled crackers.
  4. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbly and the top is toasted.

This was very good. I didn't use the sugar called for just sprinkled a little on but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It was a big hit at our Easter dinner.

Was somewhat skeptical about this combination at first, like some of the other reviewers, but I have to say, it is AMAZING! My daughter even ate this and she hates cooked carrots of any kind! I ...

Too sweet for us. The flavors just don't blend together well.
