Bourbon, Maple, and Brown Sugar Roasted Baby Rainbow Carrots
Happy Thanksgiving week, y’all! I can’t believe we’re already here and just days away from the biggest food holiday of the year! Woot!
I’m not completely organized yet. We we have most (but not all) of our supplies.
I happened across some baby rainbow carrots at the grocery and nearly had a heart attack! I can never find sexy versions of vegetables. I’m not hating on the orange carrot or the purple beet, but it’s so much fun when you can find a variety of colors to jazz things up a bit! I mean, purple carrots and yellow beets? That’s switching things up!
I bought every last little colorful carrot I could find.
And covered them in bourbon, brown sugar, and maple syrup then roasted them.
I’m glad I saved some to bourbon-ize and roast for our Thanksgiving holiday! I highly recommend that you do it too!
P. S. There’s still time to enter the giveaway! (CLOSED)

What a beautiful looking dish! I can’t find purple carrots anywhere, which makes me sad as they bring so much colour to the plate.
Thanks, Dannii! I NEVER find purple carrots. That’s what made this dish so epic for me! 🙂

What a fun recipe! I don’t think I’ve ever bought baby colored carrots…but now I have the urge to race to my local grocery store and look for them. Or do I actually just have the urge to race to my local liquor store and get bourbon? Hmmm…let’s go with both! What a fun side dish for the holidays!

Nature had everything to do with those carrot shapes! Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
I have recently been seeing a lot of these RAINBOW carrots! I am not really a carrot person but… I think these are def worth a try!
OMG! I thought rainbow carrots were a fiction like unicorns! But no! I found them at the end of my rainbow! P.S. Add bourbon and everything is better! 🙂
