¼ cup butter (½ stick)

2 cups grated carrots

1 cup cashews (buy pieces or coarsely chop)

4 eggs

1 to 1 ¼ cups half & half

½ tsp nutmeg

½ tsp salt

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 (9”) piecrust

When ingredients are ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the carrots and cashews and cook until carrots are tender and cashews are golden brown.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, half- &-half, nutmeg, and salt.

Evenly spread the cheese in the bottom of the piecrust. Layer the carrot mixture over the cheese, and top with the egg mixture.

Bake 40-45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
