Great veggie dish! Easy to prepare. Even veggie avoiders will enjoy this. Use a small onion or the strong flavor will over power the sweet of the carrots. I didn't have any seasoned croutons in house & wanted something quick to use so opened a box of stovetop corn bread stuffing mix and used that w/ out the seasoning package. Was wonderful! Will make again.

There was something missing from this...perhaps an additional type of cheese other than just processed? I actually opted to make my own croutons and added in a little bit of garlic and frozen spinach (thawed/drained) for extra excitement. I think next time I may try adding water chestnuts for texture (another reviewers suggestion) and maybe some fresh dill?

I have been making a variation of this for years. Mine adds sliced water chestnuts and uses bread crumbs instead of croutons. It has always been a hit no matter where I take it.

My sister has this recipe. It may sound odd but it is a family favorite. Everyone who has had it just loves it. Try it.

We always love this - my four year old always asks for seconds! I used crushed ritz on top - delish!

Always make this one for big holiday dinners. I have used cream of chicken/mushroom/celery or whatever I have on hand and it always turns out great. I also prefer to use crushed ritz crackers on the top.

I used Wegman's seasoned croutons - Cheese & Garlic variety. This casserole was a HUGE success only problem - next time I have to make TWO of them because my husband ate almost one by himself!! HE LOVED IT!!

YUM... we made this same casserole in home ec class years ago... it seems like a recipe some may not like - but the taste is fantastic and I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like it.

Good basic recipe! I didn't have cream of celery soup so used (low sodium) cream of mushroom and added no salt Spike rather than the salt and pepper but otherwise stayed with the original recipe. I could see myself making it again perhaps adding a mix of veggies and/or mushrooms... Great comfort food! Thanks!!

This recipe is a keeper. Perfect for holidays or when you have to bring a casserole to a party. I scaled down the butter to 3T. with the croutons and it was wonderful.
