These. Are. Amazing.
I’ve seen a few recipes in some cookbooks I read recently for bacon pecan carrots, and oh baby… they were on my mind for a solid few weeks before I finally got to make them.
After making them, let me just say, it’s a good thing I rarely keep bacon in the house.
Because Me + bacon= L.O.V.E.
However… Bacon + my self control = oh help
Anyway… I highly recommend these. They were fantastic! While certainly not the healthiest carrots on earth, they’re a delicious fall treat! We served them with a fancy roast I’ll be posting about soon, and they were FANTASTIC.
You could certainly adapt them to your tastes–less bacon, more bacon, fewer pecans, finer chopped pecans,etc., but I LOVED these. The salty, smoky flavor from the bacon was perfect with the sweetness of the carrots and glaze, and the crunch from the pecans was to die for.
Did I mention to please send help? Just talking about these makes me want them again!
