Side Dish Essentials: Roasted Carrots with Bacon

Andy Anderson !


This is a side dish that is easy/peasy to assemble, and has great flavor. It is carrots, bacon, honey, and a few other bits-and-bobs.

There is just a whisper of honey... just enough to add some sweetness, and balance out the flavors of the carrots and honey.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
