These Bacon Glazed Carrots are easy side dish recipe will quickly become a family favorite.
The night I tested this recipe, I invited my mom, brother and grandmother over dinner. I can’t even remember what we had as a main dish that night because these glazed carrots were so incredible! They totally stole the show!
As I was making the carrots, I tasted one to make sure the season was right. Big mistake. I went back for another. And another. And another. I knew right then and there I needed to make more…and quick!
I ended up doubling the recipe that night and it was a good thing! All of the guys (my hubs, brother and son) gobbled them up (the Thanksgiving pun was intentional). There wasn’t a single carrot left in the dish.
Of course, if you put this bacon glaze on tree bark I’m sure it would get devoured! This recipe will definitely be making an appearance for Thanksgiving! I’m sure it’s going to be one of my family’s favorite Thanksgiving menu recipes!
