Ingredients

  • 2 pounds baby carrots tops trimmed at about 2 inches, (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss carrots with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste and arrange carrots in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Combine butter, brown sugar, honey, Italian seasoning, balsamic vinegar, and garlic in a small sauce pan and stir over medium high heat until completely melted and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour over carrots.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes until tender and easily pierced with a fork. Serve immediately.

Notes

Baby carrots are simply smaller, thinner full carrots. If you only have larger carrots, make sure you slice them in half lengthwise so that they are half the thickness and cook properly.
