Bacon Wrapped Carrots are the perfect side dish for any meal! Tender roasted carrots wrapped in salty bacon with a sweet maple glaze.



  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled and stems trimmed down, leaving a couple inches at the top
  • 1 pound of bacon (not thick sliced)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wrap each carrot with a piece of bacon as tightly as possible so that when it cooks the bacon forms to the carrots. Place the carrots, seam side down, on a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Roast the carrots in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. While the carrots are roasting you can make the glaze by adding the syrup, melted butter and cayenne pepper to a small bowl and whisking together.
  4. Remove the carrots from the oven and brush with the glaze. Place the carrots back into the oven for another 15 minutes until the bacon is crispy.
  5. Remove the carrots from the oven and glaze once more, top with chopped parsley and serve.

Recipe Notes

You might not use all of the bacon, you’ll need one piece per carrot.
