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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. We added the optional onions to mine... love the added flavor it gives. Delish!
