Try something different (and delicious!) with carrots. With only five ingredients, our Carrot Casserole is simple and inexpensive to make. We’ve served this carrot bake to folks who weren’t particularly fond of carrots, and it was a big hit!
2-1/2 cups diced carrots
2 eggs, separated
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1-1/2 cups milk
Optional: salt and pepper, to taste
In a saucepan over medium heat, steam or boil the carrots until tender. Drain, then mash the carrots and season with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a 1-quart casserole. In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks. In another bowl, combine the carrots, egg yolks, bread crumbs, onion, and milk. In a large, chilled bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold the whipped whites into the carrot mixture. Turn into the prepared casserole. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve hot.
