Bourbon Glazed Carrots

Beth Pierce


These amazing Bourbon Glazed Carrots are cooked up perfect in an extra large skillet in about fifteen to twenty minutes. Friends and family love these sweet veggies. I really enjoy the addition of the bourbon but they are also delicious without it. They are the perfect side dish for grilled steak, stuffed chicken and baked fish. So don’t limit these amazing Bourbon Glazed Carrots just to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
