I found my new favorite side dish to smoke while we have the meat cooking away. These carrots are beyond melt in your mouth delish, I mean there’s bacon for crying out loud. How can it get any better than that? The carrots get sweeter as they cook and the maple syrups helps caramelize them. It’s the perfect balance of week and salty!
Maple Glazed Bacon Wrapped Roasted Carrots
(Created by Finding Inspiration in Food)
2 pounds carrots, well scrubbed or peeled
1 pound bacon
1/4 cup maple syrup
Wrap the carrots in the bacon.
Cook on grill over indirect heat until carrots are cooked through and bacon is crisp, glazing with maple syrup as it cooks.
Arrange on a wire rack on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F oven until the bacon is crispy and the carrots are tender, about 20-30 minutes, glazing with the maple syrup half way through.
