Bugs Bunny's Dessert

What's up Doc? A carrot a day keeps the doctor away, you say? Well I don't think Bugs is the only one who'd like to eat this dish every day. I made this for a side dish to go along with the turkey rolls but it doubled as dessert as well. So much more do I need to say?

The color and texture will remind you of sweet potatoes but surprise surprise, it's carrots! There's so much sweetness added that there's not a lot of carrot taste left, so this is perfect for those picky eaters who insist they don't want to eat their veggies. It does take a while to bake in the oven so make sure to plan ahead so it comes out hot and ready when everything else is ready to go.

I'm pretty sure Bugs was talking about this dish when he said "Carrots are devine... You get a dozen for a dime, It's maaaa-gic!"

Quick & Dirty

  • I cut the recipe in half because I didn't think I needed 8 servings of it...but I probably could've made the whole thing because Cooking Light's definition of a serving is a little different than mine
  • Used regular sour cream...another thing I'm not a fan of fat-free
  • Next time I might try putting the servings into individual souffle dishes
  • Creamy
  • Sweet
  • Nutritious!
  • That I didn't make the entire 8 servings because leftovers were just as delicious!
  • Some people may think it's a little too sweet...especially as a side dish.  Personally I could eat this for the main course, side dish and dessert!
