Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs carrots (See Note 1)
  • 12 slices thin cut bacon
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce optional
  • Parsley for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix together the maple syrup and Sriracha sauce (optional) in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet or long casserole dish with parchment paper or silicon baking sheet.
  3. Peel and trim carrots leaving about an inch of the stems. Starting at one end wrap bacon slice around each carrot from top to bottom. Place on baking sheet and repeat. Sprinkle with black pepper and roast in hot oven.
  4. After 25 minutes carefully turn over with tongs, baste with maple Sriracha sauce and continue roasting for another 20-25 minutes depending on thickness of carrots. Bacon should be crispy. Remove from oven and baste with any remaining sauce. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes
  1. I use fresh carrots with the greens still attached in case I want to have these as an appetizer (easier to hand hold). Feel free to use without. I usually get about 12 medium sized carrots. Be sure to get carrots that are at least one inch thick, too. If they are too thin the carrots over cook while trying to get the bacon crispy. Nobody like mushy carrots or squishy, undercooked bacon!
