  • 6 medium carrots
  • 6 strips bacon
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup


  • Preheat over to 425F.
  • Peel carrots and place whole in a large saucepan. Cover with an inch of water.
  • Bring the water to a boil and cook carrots for 5 minutes. Drain and cool.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment. Wrap each carrot with a strip of bacon.
  • Line carrots together on the tray and place in the middle rack of the oven.
  • Roast for 25 minutes (keep an eye on them as ovens may vary. Bacon should be slightly crispy, not burnt!).
  • Remove from the oven, then brush the bacon-wrapped carrots with maple syrup.
  • Return to the oven and roast for an additional 5 minutes. Stay close-by as the bacon can burn easily.
  • Remove from oven and serve hot.
