1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

Combine ground beef, onion, carrot, salt and pepper in 12-inch skillet; cook over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Drain, if necessary. Set aside.

Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan until sizzling; stir in flour. Add milk and broth; cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 7-9 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat to low; stir in cheese until melted. Add cooked ground beef mixture, ketchup and mustard. Continue cooking 4-5 minutes or until heated through. Top each serving with chopped pickles and shoestring potatoes.
