I thought I'd share one of my most favorite ways to eat carrots. This happens to be one of those things that I came up with all by myself and I ate them for a lot while Big Daddy was out of town. That gave me a chance to sort of tweek the recipe and get it just right before I let him taste the yumminess! He is a little picky/critical of how things are cooked and ends lots of meals by saying " that ____ was good, but if you would _____ it would be even better". Between the two of us, we change lots of recipes!
Honey Glazed Carrots
2 pounds of carrots, peeled and cut into sticks, placed into a crock pot
just enough fat free Italian dressing to coat the carrots and then one more squirt
a healthy drizzle of honey over the carrots
Turn crock pot on low and cook until carrots are tender, but not falling apart. (about 6 hours, or so) I stir these around every couple of hours or the bottom carrots will get black and really carmelized. (those are my favorites)
I always buy a 2 pound bag of carrots. It looks like a lot, but this enough for our dinner and left overs the next day, or dinner and two meals of left overs if Big Daddy is traveling. I do not buy "fat free" things very often because of all of the added junk, but I found that fat free dressing works well in these. If you use regular dressing, they are greasy. Sometimes I quarter an onion and throw in there too.
