Roasted Carrots, Thanksgiving Favorite

I made these for Thanksgiving and the family said they were the best carrots they had ever had. The roasting brings out the sweetness and cutting them the same size means they are done together and not overcooked.

Carrots are sweet and roasting makes them even sweeter. The seasonings were just right. I didn't need to roast as long as the recipe stated. Since cooking times vary with ovens, watch these really close. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
