Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots
These Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots are a family favorite!
We don’t eat a lot of casseroles. I’m more of a “meat and two sides” kinda cook. You know, a meat, a starch and a green veggie, but sometimes I like to add carrots as an extra side dish.
Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots can be made with fresh or frozen baby carrots, large carrots or if you’re in a hurry canned are fine. It’s a great recipe for kids, even if they don’t think they like cooked carrots. They are usually enticed by the sweetness…don’t tell them carrots are nutritious too.
Here’s the Recipe:
1 16 oz bag of baby carrots
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp butter
Place carrots in pot and cover with water
Bring to a boil, reduce slightly and continue to boil about 20 minutes or until carrots are tender
Drain well and return to pot
Add sugar, cinnamon and butter, tossing to coat

Also you can add a dash of good vanilla (especially Mexican) and you have a real delight
