Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots

Roasted carrots with brown sugar glaze will be a new dinner party favorite. This simple recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and savory that makes the perfect side with any meal.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots peeled
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into pats
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Candied Pecans

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecan halves roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaked sea salt

Garnish

  • 3/4 cup goat cheese crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with 3 sheets of foil (you’ll need it!) and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place the carrots in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and evenly distribute the pats of butter. Then sprinkle with salt and cinnamon.
  • Bake carrots, tossing every 20 minutes, until tender and browned around the edges for 50–60 minutes.
  • While the carrots are roasting, prepare the candied pecans by melting the butter in a small pan on low heat. Once the butter is melted, add the maple syrup, brown sugar, and pecans. Stir for about 2 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Remove the candied pecans from the heat and stir in the flaked sea salt. Set aside.
  • Once the carrots are cooked, put them in a serving dish. Sprinkle them evenly with the candied pecans and goat cheese. Finish the dish with a sprinkle of fresh thyme leaves.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Bacon and Pomegranates

Pomegranates with  bacon roasted brussels sprouts | cookingwithcassandra.com

I remember growing up, I was a big desserts and candied yams girl at my holiday dinners. I always remember the one Christmas where my jaw dropped when I had oven-roasted Brussels sprouts for the first time. It was crazy good. I couldn’t believe that vegetables could be this delicious.  In my take on this holiday classic, I have added crispy roasted bacon and its fats that make everything better, too.  Now this recipe is one way to enjoy vegetables, and I mean REALLY enjoy them… not just tolerate them to meet our daily fiber intake. Even the pickiest eaters and vegetable haters will be...
