This recipe was made by my Aunt Afton to get her kids (6 and me) to eat more vegetables. I'm 66 yrs young, so you know it's an oldy but goody.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What an ingenious way to cook carrots. You get a nice little crunch from the outer fried section of the croquettes and then you get a sweet warm bite from the middle. I added the optional onions to mine... I love the added flavor it gives. Delish!

Ingredients

3 c
grated carrots
1
egg, beaten
4 Tbsp
flour
grated onion (optional)
1 tsp
salt
1/4 c
shortening, for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt shortening in flat skillet for frying.
2
Mix all ingredients well with a fork or spoon.
3
make into patties, your choice of size, and fry slowly. Turn once to brown both sides. They look really good to the kids, so they don't have to know it's carrot.
4
I drain on brown paper bag, then place in warm oven to keep hot while cooking the rest. Serve hot and crispy
