Maple Glazed Carrots
Maple Glazed Carrots are an easy, and impressive side dish! They are wonderful served with roast beef, grilled chicken, or any other main dish. They are also a Thanksgiving favorite!
- 10 carrots large
- 4 Tbsp butter divided
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- dash black pepper freshly ground
- 1 sprig oregano optional
Wash and slice carrots into sticks, or use about 2 pounds of baby carrots.
Heat skillet over medium-high heat. You want it pretty hot.
Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter and add carrots to the skillet. Sear them to get that pretty roasted color on them. It will take about 3-5 minutes
Once carrots have a little browning on them, turn the heat down to medium-low. Add more remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter. Add pure maple syrup, salt, and brown sugar. Toss until carrots are coated in glaze.
Cook carrots in the glaze uncovered for about 10 minutes, stirring often. The glaze will begin to reduce and get thick.
Remove carrots from skillet. Pour extra glaze over the carrots. Garnish with fresh herbs, ground black pepper, or nuts. Serve.
