Sometimes, I like easy – a recipe that can be quickly prepared and still taste great – like these glazed carrots with onions and bacon. There is certainly a time and place for gourmet ingredients and fancy techniques, but that time is not on a busy weeknight. Especially, a weeknight when you’re trying to throw together a last minute meal, because you realize it’s five o ‘clock and you haven’t so much as thought about supper. Yep, that would be me. All I can say is thank goodness for carrots, onions and bacon.
Although this is a two-step process it’s pretty simple to make glazed carrots with onions and bacon. There are five ingredients in all. You’ll cook the carrots in enough boiling water to cover in a large saucepan for 15 minutes or until tender. While the carrots are cooking, cook the bacon, in a skillet, until crisp and then drained on paper towels, reserving 1 tablespoon of drippings in skillet. Then you’ll saute the onion until it’s tender.
Next, you’ll stir in the brown sugar, pepper, and drained carrots. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until carrots are glazed and thoroughly heated. Place in a serving dish and top with crumbled bacon.
