Finnish Carrot Casserole

Posted on | October 24, 2012 | 9 Comments

This Scandinavian casserole makes a delicious side dish or even main dish. It is slightly sweet, a little bit custard like, and it has a light feeling to it. However, due to the rice and custard, this dish is also relatively filling.

This casserole is very easy to prepare, especially if you have a food processor to grate the carrots. The baking will take a little bit of time though.    

Finnish Carrot Casserole


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3/4 – 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups / 480 ml milk
  • 1 cup cooked rice (I used brown rice)
  • 1 lb / 450 g carrots, grated


  • 1 slice whole grain bread, shredded into crumbs in a food processor
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190°C.

Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the brown sugar, salt, and slowly add the milk a few tablespoons at a time. Add the cooked rice and the grated carrots and stir well. Pour the carrot mixture into a lightly greased 8”x8” / 20cmx20cm baking dish.  

Combine the bread crumbs with the olive oil and top the casserole with it.

Bake the casserole for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Serve warm or cold. Guten Appetit!!!

Finnischer Mohrrübenauflauf


  • 2 groβe Eier
  • 2 EL braunen Zucker
  • 3/4 – 1 TL Salz
  • 480 ml Milch
  • 1 Tasse (240 ml Fassungsvermögen) gekochten Reis (Ich habe Naturreis verwendet)
  • 450 g Mohrrüben, geraspelt

Belag / Kruste

  • 1 Scheibe Vollkornbrot, in einer Küchenmaschine zu Krümeln verarbeitet
  • 1 EL Olivenöl


Den Ofen auf 375°F / 190°C vorheizen.

Die Eier in einer Schüssel mit einem Schneebesen verschlagen. Den braunen Zucker, das Salz und nach und nach die Milch hinzufügen und unterrühren. Dann den gekochten Reis und die Mohrrüben hinzufügen. Den Mix in eine leicht eingefettete Backform (20cm x 20 cm, 8” x 8”) geben.

Die Brotkrümel mit dem Olivenöl vermengen und über dem Auflauf verteilen.

Den Auflauf für 1 bis 1 1/2 Stunden im Ofen backen.

Warm oder auch kalt servieren. Guten Appetit!!!
