I created this recipe when I was trying to use up some frozen carrots. I used the typical green bean casserole as my inspiration because it’s such a hit in our house. My goal is to fix vegetables so my kids will eat them. This way they have to eat the carrots to get the french fried onions on top! I know blanched vegetables are better for you, but I think of ANY vegetable kids will eat is better than none at all. It’s only my opinion.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix carrots, cut onions. Stir in soup, salt, pepper, onion powder, & garlic powder (spices to taste). Put in sprayed 9" x 9" pan. Make it level. Add french fried onions on top. (Eating 1 is ok if you're the cook.)
Cover with foil and put in preheated oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to brown.ch fried onions on top! Cook 30 min. if carrots completely thawed, 45 minutes if carrots not completely thawed
My mother-in-law asked me where I got the recipe, one day when they ate with us. I told her it was something I just put together. "Oh really?" This from the lady who taught ME how to cook. I was excited, inside, to get that kind of reaction from her because she's such a good cook!
Now depending on the size of our family gatherings, I get asked to bring this recipe or the corn recipe on here!
