If you have kids that don't like veggies; try this one at Easter dinner.

The Easter Bunny sells carrots that are yellow & orange at Trader Joes-or just use regular orange ones.

This makes a very pretty and colorful side dish for Easter, or any dinner.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These potatoes are nice and creamy with a pop of sweetness from the carrots. We love the added color the carrots give this dish too. This would make a great side dish with any Easter dinner.

Tip: Our Trader Joes stopped carrying the suggested carrots so we substituted some of their fresh yellow and orange carrots. It turned out great! The Test Kitchen
