DONNA'S SCALLOPED CARROTS

This is another old recipe from the midwest.

1 sm onion (grated)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt (I recommend using less!)
1/4 tsp mustard
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp celery salt
2 cups milk
12 carrots, sliced and cooked
1/2 lb sharp process cheese, grated
3 cups buttered crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet saute the onion in the butter until onions are tender; add flour, seasonnings, and milk. Cook until mixture is thick. In a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish (I recommend a light spraying with nonstick cooking spray), arrange a layer of carrots and a layer of cheese. Repeat layers until all the carrots and cheese are used, ending with cheese. Pour the hot sauce over all. Top with the buttered crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.

*You can substitute 1/4 pound of American cheese for half the sharp cheese, if desired.
