Ingredients needed to make these Maple Bacon Wrapped Carrots:

  • carrots
  • bacon
  • maple syrup
  • salt
  • pepper

The ingredients are really minimal hear and I find it is for the best.

The only other tweaks you could make would be adding chili powder or paprika for some extra heat.

As for the carrots, I found that a bunch of carrots that was medium in size was perfect for this recipe. You need to cut off the stem and the leaves prior using them in this recipe.

Note: make sure to use real maple syrup. It makes all the difference in flavor.

Also, make sure your bacon has no nitrates inside and no added sugar.

How to make bacon wrapped carrots with maple syrup:

Making these maple bacon wrapped carrots are relatively easy.

To start, you clean your carrots. Then place them in boiling water for 5 minutes.

I’ve found that if you don’t boil them for a little bit first then they wont soften enough while baking.

Then you wrap each carrot in bacon.

To do this, start at the larger end of the carrot and move downwards towards the tip.

Then, place the carrot down with the bacon ends placed downwards on the cookie sheet.

If one of the ends happens to be facing upwards, you can use a toothpick to hold it down.

Once all the carrots are wrapped in bacon, sprinkle 2-3 Tbs of maple syrup on top of them. And then add some salt and pepper on top.

Then BAKE.

Once the bacon has gotten crispy, and the carrots are cooked through, take the carrots out of the oven.

I like to sprinkle 1 more tablespoon of maple syrup on top of them at this point.
