This recipe for Maple Bacon Roasted Carrots is made with just three ingredients and makes the perfect dinner side dish.
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:25 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
2 pounds carrots
1 – 2 Tablespoons maple syrup, depending on sweetness preference
2 strips bacon, diced
Peel and chop carrots into one inch long chunks. Try to choose carrots that are similar thickness so that they cook evenly. If parts of them are much thicker, you may want to cut those chunks in half lengthwise.
Add maple syrup, bacon and carrots to a large bowl and shake or stir until well-coated.
Place on foil-lined baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees F for 20-30 minutes, stirring once. Check after 20 minutes to see if desired tenderness is reached. If not, return to oven for another 10 min.
