Crockpot Glazed Carrots Recipe
Can I confess that I only like cooked carrots so this recipe was perfect for me. John only likes them raw so I kept some to the side for him and enjoyed a ton of cooked carrots. The things you do for a happy marriage 🙂
These Crock Pot Glazed Carrots are perfect for Easter or any family dinner. The slow cooker does the work and you have a great veggie side dish ready to go!
I love quick and easy side dishes for the holidays! These crockpot carrots are perfect for Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner!
You can free up oven space by using your slow cooker. The whole family will love this simple side dish that is packed with flavor.
We pair these slow cooker carrots with crockpot ham, turkey, and all our favorite holiday recipes.
- Baby carrots
- Orange juice
- Brown sugar
- Orange zest
- Ground cinnamon
- Vanilla extract
Optional Garnish - fresh thyme, fresh parsley
The carrots are cooked as they soak in the melted butter, cinnamon, orange juice glaze. These slow cooker glazed carrots can be made with a bag of baby carrots or you can use sliced carrots.
I normally pick the baby-sized carrots in a bag because they are easy and you can skip the step of having to slice the carrots.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
Spider Strainer - I love using a spider strainer to easily drain the crock pot carrots and move them to a serving bowl.
Cook the carrots until they are tender, stir before serving to distribute the glaze.
Store any leftover carrots in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
