Roasted Carrots: To roast these carrots in the oven, simply put the carrots in a casserole dish. Add in carrots, butter, and brown sugar then bake at 350 degrees for an hour and a half.

Sweetener: You can also change the sweetener you use. Trade out the brown sugar for honey, agave syrup, or maple syrup glazed carrots. You can also replace it with any sweetener that’s better for you personally.

Garnish: Instead of parsley you can sprinkle in some chopped thyme, rosemary, or other herbs. They add a fresh pop of color as well as an extra kick of flavor. Sesame seeds gives a robust aroma as well.

HOW TO SERVE

The carrots are best served with a meaty, savory entree with some sort of carb option. Some of our favorites entrees to pair with glazed carrots are also the most classic holiday entrees such as glazed ham, roasted turkey, pork, or prime rib.

Pair with anything that will do well soaking up both the extra butter syrup glaze, such as Cheese Biscuits, Easy Cornbread from Scratch, or. Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
