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.

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! The Test Kitchen

  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.
