¼ cup butter (½ stick)
2 cups grated carrots
1 cup cashews (buy pieces or coarsely chop)
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.
