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

      Great idea Dianne! I hadn’t thought about that but sounds delicious. We’ll have to give it a try next time….love some Mexican vanilla. Thanks for stopping by.
