Baby carrots are mixed with onions and cheese, topped with crumbled buttery round crackers. This is my grandmother's best Thanksgiving recipe.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until sauce is bubbly and the top is toasted.

Awesome these were soooooo goood my whole family loved them. I really like carrots with brown sugar but the rest of my family likes them plain this was a good combination cause they were definitly sweet but not overly and the kids love anything with crackers!!!! Awesome recipe will be making it again. Oh and the only change i made was that i sauteed the onions in butter instead of steaming them because i absolutely love sauteed onions!!!! Read More

Sorry but I didn't like these at all... the mayo and sugar combo was too much for me and they were very sweet with 1/2 cup of sugar. I would recommend cutting the sugar in half. Read More

I loved this but hubby did not he thought it was too sweet and I even cut the sugar back to 1/4 cup. I might try it again using even less sugar but overall I thought it was different. Read More

This was delicious! Simple and so good! The only change I made was to add more crackers on top with a little melted butter/margarine and then sprinkle on top this gave the casserole alot of crunch. Will definitly make again! Read More

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 did cut way back on the sugar and added butter and a lil less mayo with a lil bit of onion and garlic powder. I will definitely make this again...it is AMAZING! Read More

My husband liked this so much I actually made it twice in one week! For the mayonnaise I used the do it yourself recipe from the "salmon deviled eggs and homemade mayonnaise" recipe on this site. I think that worked extremely well with the sweeter taste of this casserole dish. But I did only use about 1/4 cup of sugar as suggested by other commenters. Also it is really great right out of the fridge the next day--even better than when it is first done! Read More

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. Read More
