Honey Roasted Carrots

Where did all the time go?  December has just flown by.  This is going to be an extremely busy weekend.  I am in the process of finalizing my menu for my dinner guests on Christmas Eve.

Here is the menu:

Holiday Ham

Roasted Turkey Breast

Mashed Potatoes

Honey Roasted Carrots

Lemon Pound Cake

Individual Marbled Cheesecakes

There will be a salad and appetizers brought by my sister.

Once I decided that I wanted roasted carrots, I had to make a batch to experiment so I can be assured they taste great for my guests. I made pan roasted carrots in the past, and they are super delicious, but I wanted to try making them in the oven without baby sitting my veggies.

My experiment was a huge success.  You will want to prepare your carrots like this ALL THE TIME.

The key to the success of this dish to to make sure your oven is HOT and stays that way throughout the cooking process. Also make sure you don't crowd the carrots on the baking sheet as this will affect the roasting process.
Ingredients
  • 1½ pounds carrots, peeled and cut all the same size,(I used Earth Exotics)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • freshly-ground salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the honey and brown sugar. Microwave for about 15 seconds. Just enough to melt the honey.
  3. Coat the carrots with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Add in the honey mixture until evenly coated
  4. Spread in an even layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes. Remove tray and keep the oven door closed to retain heat. Using tongs, turn the carrots over and return to the oven for another 30 minutes or until they start to carmalize.
