“This is a super dish for a meat and potato night. This recipe was introduced to me 10 years ago by Opal Brown of Iowa at her family's gathering and I'm so grateful she shared it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil 1/4" chopped carrot pieces for 5-6 minutes and drain (I've used baby carrots but the chopped turn out much better).
  2. Place evenly in an 8x10" oblong baking dish sprayed with Pam.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Over medium low heat saute onion in butter until the onion becomes softened.
  5. Pour evenly over carrots in dish.
  6. Work the carrots until coated well on all sides.
  7. Chop Velveeta into small cubes and sprinkle over carrots.
  8. I've tried shredded cheddar and Cheese Whiz, Velveeta works best.
  9. Crush potato chips in a plastic bag and sprinkle over the top (more or less to your taste).
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes until done.
