The word "famous" is in quotes in the title because it really isn't all that famous at all.
I made this recipe (from a local cookbook) long before I went to culinary school for my first Christmas dinner with TB's family two years before we were married.
They loved it and ever since the only thing besides a dessert I can bring is my "famous" carrots. I keep telling them, that I can bring other items but they want the carrots. I make gravy when I am there, but it is the carrots they love. I have elevated it ever so slightly changing up the mustard from regular yellow, but this is basically it.
LP's "Famous" Carrots

Fresh parsley can be added to the butter mixture as well.
