My kids are pretty good about eating raw vegetables (as long as I serve some Ranch dressing on the side), but carrots are one of the few veggies they will eat cooked. Which means I’m always looking for new ways to serve them, and these Brown Sugar Carrots with Bacon were a big hit.
I find it easiest to use baby carrots in this recipe, but you could certainly peel and cut up whole carrots too. And don’t be afraid to add more bacon if you’d like. Or more brown sugar! You can totally adapt this recipe to suit your tastes. At my house, that sometimes means this dish would be more aptly titled: Bacon and Brown Sugar with Carrots. Whatever it takes to get my kids to eat vegetables!
These carrots will be appearing on my menu often. In fact, my youngest has already requested them for Thanksgiving dinner!
Be sure to save this delicious side dish recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later!
