Swiss Carrot Casserole


This recipe was given to me by my husband’s grandmother. She was a wonderful cook and loved to feed all of her family. She cooked this family favorite for all holidays we celebrated together. It is a must in our family to keep the tradition going. Not all of the kids love carrots, but it brings a smile to their eyes when they see this dish and think of their great-grandmother looking down from heaven. I try to make a large batch so we have leftovers of this dish. They heat up very well! Enjoy!
