  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a large casserole dish.

  • Drain carrots and mash in a large bowl. Mix in milk, Cheddar cheese, 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon crushed crackers, beaten eggs, butter, parsley, salt, and pepper.

  • Spread carrot mixture in the greased casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/4 cup crushed crackers.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

For the cheesiest flavor, be sure to use cheese-flavored crackers and mature Cheddar cheese.

Tasty new way to make carrots! This was an easy to assemble casserole that baked up cheesy and light! We loved it! This would be a nice addition to a Thanksgiving meal or a nice change anytime. Will make again! Read More

Easy to make and my family loved it. I used regular Ritz type crackers because I didn t like the cheese flavored ones. I also added a little sugar to bring out the sweetness of the carrots. Will definitely make it again. Read More
