Bacon-Wrapped, Maple-Glazed Roasted Carrots
This simple, three-ingredient recipe is a decadent way to enjoy these somewhat tired root vegetables.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 2 people
- 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.
