This is one of my favorite ways to prepare carrots. I love the creaminess the cheese makes with the butter and milk and the crunchy crumbs on the top.My mom would make these as a side dish with her fried chicken and country mashed potatoes. Now I make them for my family.
1Preheat oven to 350^.
In a saucepan, bring 2 quarts of water to a rapid boil. Add the carrots and cook until barely tender,12 minutes; drain.
In a saucepan, melt butter and sauté onions over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Whisk in flour, salt, ginger and pepper; stir while cooking for 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk; cook stirring constantly until thickened,5 minutes. Stir in the cheeses. In a large bowl combine carrots and sauce. Pour into a buttered or sprayed 2 quart casserole dish.
Combine bread crumbs and melted butter sprinkle over carrots. Bake uncovered 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
