Years ago a neighbor passed on a recipe, that in some ways, is similiar to this. It's potatoes & carrots cooked in water & a dry onion soup packet. Then they're mashed w/ sour cream & topped with shredded cheddar cheese. It's become a family favorite & none of us are crazy about cooked carrots! I copied this recipe for future use! :)
