These maple bacon carrots are the perfect addition to any dinner table!
Ok, so Easter is almost here and it’s time to post the obligatory extra yummy, only eat a couple of times of year vegetables. But I guess you can look on the bright side and say at least your eating vegetables right!
When I first made these carrots Aaron said they were the best carrots he had ever had, and that’s a big deal because he LOVES roasted carrots! But let’s be honest, who doesn't love bacon and maple syrup!
These are also really easy to make which when you already have a big meal to make is a win. You can wrap your carrots in advance and bake when you're ready. I do recommend you use a medium-sized carrot because if you small carrots they will cook quicker than the bacon and your carrots will be mushy and no one likes mushy carrots.
These carrots are also extra delicious with the addition of the maple syrup and pepper. These are classic flavours that pair so well together and also pair so well with a big classic turkey dinner. Give these a try this weekend, I guarantee that your family will thank you!
12 medium carrots
12 strips of bacon
1/4 cup maple syrup
freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Clean and peel each carrot then wrap 1 strip of bacon and place it on a prepared baking sheet.
Brush each carrot with half of the maple syrup then sprinkle with black pepper. Bake for 15 minutes flip then brush with remaining maple syrup and additional pepper. Bake another 10 minutes or until bacon is crispy and carrots are tender.
