  • 1 can Carrots Libby's
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Start making the roux.
  • To make the roux you'll heat the butter in a saucepan on medium heat and then add in the flour and form a paste/roux.
  • Slowly add in milk and whisk until the flour and milk are combined.
  • Once the mixture thickens on a medium-low heat you'll reduce the heat to low and add in freshly shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Place the carrots into a small casserole dish that is oven safe and then cover with the cheese sauce.
  • Mix the carrots and the cheese sauce until combined and then top with bread crumbs.
  • Bake for 25 minutes and then garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
