Baked Carrots with Bacon

We are not big carrot fans, but we absolutely LOVE these Smothered Carrots. Carrots baked in brown sugar, soy sauce, butter, and bacon. I mean, what’s not to love?!?!?! This recipe makes a lot of carrots so it is perfect for potlucks, cookouts, and the holidays. These Smothered Carrots are a MUST for your upcoming Easter dinner. Trust me. Everyone will love them!

How to Make the Best Carrots

These Smothered Carrots are super easy to make. I used a few bags of pre-sliced carrot chips. Spread the carrots in the bottom of a baking dish. Next, cook some bacon. Chop the bacon and sprinkle it over the carrots. Whisk together soy sauce, melted butter, brown sugar, and garlic. Pour over the carrots and bacon and bake. That is it! SO easy!

Feel free to use turkey bacon and low-sodium soy sauce to reduce the sodium and fat in this recipe. You can also use an equivalent amount of whole carrots and peel and cut them yourself.
