Carrot Balls

I've started packing up the cookbooks. This is painful, as I've discovered a couple duplicates already, and forced myself to get rid of others. I did find this fun recipe, though, for Carrot Balls. I'm still on my carrot cake search, and this caught my eye, from the Southern Heritage set, the Vegetables volume. Seems like a lot of trouble to go through to ruin a perfectly good vegetable.
2 cups sliced carrots, cooked and mashed
1 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Dash of hot sauce
1 egg white
1 1/4 cups coarsely crushed cornflakes
Combine carrots, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, and hot sauce; toss lightly. Beat egg white until stiff peaks form; fold into carrot mixture.
Shape mixture into 2-inch balls; roll in cornflakes. Place balls on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
I have to wonder how this recipe came about...
