A Favorite from the New Book: Maple Bacon Roasted Carrots

Bacon Maple Roasted Carrots

It may be a cliche that everything tastes better with bacon, but sometimes things are a cliche for a reason…and this is certainly one of those times!

Crispy, salty bacon wrapped around savory roasted carrots glazed in sweet maple syrup… that’s about as perfect as a side dish gets!

Maple Bacon Roasted Carrots

2 pounds carrots, peeled (I like a multicolor mix of red, purple, yellow, & orange 7-8”)
1 lb. bacon, thin-cut
¼ cup real maple syrup

Peel the carrots, and brush on all side with maple syrup (this helps keep the bacon in place.)

Wrap each carrot in a slice of bacon.

Arrange the carrots on a wire rack, on a foil wrapped baking sheet, and roast in a preheated 400F. oven.

Cook until the bacon is crispy and the carrots are tender, about 20-30 minutes, brushing with maple syrup halfway through.

Serve immediately.
