Thaw first, and then cook 400 F for 40-50 minutes.

Add all other ingredients and mix in Kitchen Aid Mixer or other mixer.

Place in baking dish and freeze if desired. Rewarm if making in advance.

Thaw (if frozen) and bake covered at 350°F for 30 minutes or until warm all through.

Shredded Carrots and Peas

Place carrots and peas in saucepan with water barely covering the bottom. Warm on low until warmed through, watching that the water does not evaporate. Place ¼ t salt and black pepper on vegetables for taste.

Bread Rolls

In advance, wrap bread rolls in foil. Warm in oven for the last 15 minutes of cooking. Serve with butter on the table.
