Maple-Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Carrots

It’s rare that a carrot dish takes center stage and gets all the applause. That’s what happened when our contributing editor Anna Franklin unveiled these Maple-Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Carrots. They look wonderful. They taste even better. We’re sure that when you make them, they will disappear just as quickly as they did at our studio.

Maple-Glazed Bacon-Wrapped Carrots Recipe


For the carrots:

12-14 medium-size carrots with tops
1 lb bacon

For the glaze:

1/4 cup maple syrup 
Juice of ½  lemon
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped


  1. Wash and peel each carrot and wrap them in a piece of bacon.
  2. Mix together all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Place bacon-wrapped carrots on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with the maple glaze. 
  4. Bake at 375 degrees until the bacon is crispy, about 45 minutes. 
  5. Make sure to flip the carrots halfway through cooking so all of the sides get browned.
  6. Drizzle with the remaining glaze before serving.
