This my go to side dish because it is easy to prepare, something that I can make ahead and/or freeze, and it goes with turkey, chicken, beef, pork, or fish. Really it does. There is not a holiday meal without this carrot casserole. Everyone loves it. We traditionally make it in a bundt pan and then place buttered peas in the middle of the turned out casserole before serving it. I have made it in ramekins, but you can double the recipe and put it in a 13x9 casserole dish. —MyCommunalTable
