Bugs Bunny's Favorite Carrot Casserole

3 Comments

Offer your family a tasty twist on a casserole dish with Bugs Bunny's Favorite Carrot Casserole. Champion of all budget casserole recipes, Ritz crackers and carrots are cheap and delicious, and Vitamin B12 in carrots strengthens your eyesight!

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 30 min

Ingredients
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tube Ritz crackers
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. Cut the carrots into 1-inch pieces and boil till tender. Drain and mash. (May process in blender or food processor for a few seconds.)
     
  3. Chop onion and saute in half the butter till softened. Do not brown.
     
  4. Whisk in flour, then milk, and continue cooking till the sauce is thickened.
     
  5. Add mashed carrots and stir to combine.
     
  6. Transfer to a buttered [or spray with Pam] 9x13 baking dish. [Can use a smaller, square or round dish to reduce the quantity of topping]
     
  7. Make topping: crush cracker and mix with remaining butter, melted. Sprinkle topping on carrots.
     
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes. If casserole is prepared in advance and refrigerated, increase baking time at least 10 minutes.

Notes

Though the topping adds flavor, the carrot portion is very tasty on its own, so topping may be eliminated altogether.

I would cut the butter in half. A half a stick for each the carrot mixture and a half a stick for the topping should be more that enough. :-)

What a great recipe. To Prestonkellyann 3227658: You could add a little sugar if you are wanting the sweetness. A couple of other options which would be my choice rather than sugar would be Honey (all natural -no additives), or maybe a little spoon of orange marmalade ... I would add these to the carrots after they were drained and before they were added to the cream sauce. Experiment with it. I think I'm going to add a little cinnamon and nutmeg the next time I fix this dish.

who would of thought? Almost sounds like a sweet potatoe recipe. Would it be okay to add a little sugar???
