How Do You Make Roasted Carrots?
We’ll take you through the step by step for this carrots recipe! It’s all about the buttered carrots and sweet streusel topping…
Start by parboiling the carrots. So this is just a quick boil, not cooking the carrots all the way through because they will finish in the oven.
Believe me, the extra step is worth it. If we only roasted these carrots in the oven, the topping would burn by the time they were done.
While the carrots are boiling you can make the streusel topping for your carrots. Just toss together some butter, chopped walnuts and brown sugar with flour until you get all the butter mixed together with the flour, sugar and walnuts.
Pour the carrots into an 8 x 8 baking dish, add butter and then top it all off with the streusel topping.
Can You Make This Side Dish Ahead Of Time?
For sure. You can stop right here and cover the carrots with foil and refrigerate. That way all you need to do is bring them to room temperature a bit, then pop them into the oven!
One less thing to get ready for a holiday dinner, or ANY dinner is a win for me.
After about 20 minutes in the oven, these Buttered Streusel Carrots will be tender, buttery and irresistible. Promise – there won’t be anyone at any dinner table who won’t be asking you to pass the carrots!
