Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots

Howdy and Happy Saturday!

Yupperdoodles, I bring you another side dish, but oh this one is so good!  Whether you love carrots or not, this is one that is sure to please everyone!  It’s sweet, has a slight crunch from it roasting in the maple syrup.  Oh baby, carrots and maple syrup, it’s a wonderful combination!!  Last year I brought you honey glazed carrots, and this year I changed it up and added maple syrup instead.  I think I still have my Maple Glazed Bacon still in my head.  Ohhhh, I bet that would be good with the carrots too!  Anyway, as much as I love the honey glazed carrots, today’s recipe tops it!

Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots
I kind of wish that I got more pictures of this dish, but my Husband was antsy for dinner and I didn’t want to serve cold carrots, however they taste pretty darn good cold. This dish is wonderful to accompany almost any meal and perfect for serving with your holiday meal. It’s healthy, quick to cook and the vibrant orange color is just beautiful.

Maple Glazed Roasted Carrots
I don’t make carrots nearly enough and I don’t understand why? I get them just about every other week in my CSA box. I guess after making them this way, I will be sure to roast up more carrots.

Well my Husband just informed me that he wants to go to the movies. I’m shocked. We want to see Last Vegas with Robert DiNero, Michael Douglas and Morgan Freeman. Seems like a fun cast!!

Have a wonderful day!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  5. I think every food blogger has said the same thing. ‘everyone was begging for food’ so the photo session was short. I know I sure have.

    Your carrots will be perfect for Thanksgiving.
