Alyssa's Zesty Carrots


Although I am calling this "Alyssa's Zesty Carrots" my mom originally served this dish.  We all love it, Alyssa made it her own, and brings it to just about every meal.  It is always a hit, perfect for every season, delicious, and easy to make!  5 stars for this one.

Serves 12
Ingredients
2 lb baby carrots
½ c mayonnaise (olive oil reduced fat)
1-2 T Onion
2 T Horseradish
1 T Butter
½ c Bread crumbs
Paprika if desired

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Boil carrots until tender, (15-20 minutes).  Reserve ½ c liquid.  Place carrots in a 2 quart baking dish or casserole.  Mix mayonnaise with horseradish, chopped onion, and ¼- ½ c of liquid to desired consistency.  Pour mixture over carrots and stir.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs.  Dot with butter and sprinkle with paprika if desired.  Bake for 30-40 minutes until brown and bubbly.
