Bacon Roasted Carrots

Sweet carrots are drizzled with bacon fat and chopped bacon, then roasted until they are tender, sweet and caramely. So much flavor!

  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 2 pounds of carrots, peeled
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the chopped bacon. Cook, stirring, often, just until the fat is rendered and the bacon starts to crisp up. Turn off the heat.
  • Peel the carrots and place them on the baking sheet. I like to drizzle the carrots with the bacon grease that is in the pan. Toss the carrots to cover them evenly with the bacon fat. Sprinkle a pinch of salt on the carrots, along with the pepper and garlic. Top with the bacon.
  • Roast the carrots for 20 minutes, or until the bacon is crisped and the carrots are fork tender.
  • Remove the baking sheet and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve immediately!
