Here’s a quick and easy recipe from the upcoming, “Holiday Cooking: A Home Chef’s Guide.”
Crispy, smoky, salty bacon-wrapped roasted carrots glazed in sweet maple syrup. The perfect side dish for any holiday meal!
- 2 pounds carrots, trimmed & peeled
- 1 lb. apple-wood smoked bacon
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
Wrap the carrots in the bacon.

Cook until the bacon is crispy and the carrots are tender, about 20-30 minutes, glazing with the maple syrup half way through.
Home Chef Note: If you’re feeding a crowd, you can save yourself some time and make this recipe casserole-style. Chop and fry your bacon, oil a baking dish with the bacon fat, toss bacon with peeled baby carrots and maple syrup, and add to baking dish. Roast at 350F for 20 minutes!
