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.

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?

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.

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!!

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.
