Maple Roasted Carrots with Bacon
An easy side dish with carrots, only lightly sweetened with maple and made smoky and flavorful with bacon!
Servings: 8 servings
- 2 pounds carrots peeled and sliced into 1" pieces
- 4 slices bacon sliced into 1/2" pieces
- 4 Tablespoons Maple Syrup the real stuff
- 2 Tablespoons salted butter melted
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Toss the carrots, bacon, maple syrup, melted butter, and salt together until the carrots are coated with the syrup and butter.
Spread it all evenly on a baking sheet with a raised edge or lip ( so the syrup doesn't run off while baking ). Do your best to have all of the bacon pieces directly on the pan and not on top of the carrots. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, give it all a stir to recoat the carrots, and place back in the oven to bake for another 15 minutes. Serve!
