Sweet Glazed Carrots Recipe: This Quick Carrot Recipe Kicks Carrots Up a Notch

Kick your carrots up a notch with this easy glazed carrots recipe. The sugar helps the carrots caramelize, which adds depth of flavor to this family favorite.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds baby carrots, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • flat-leaf parsley, chopped (optional)

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add the carrots, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add just enough water to cover. Turn heat up to high, cover and cook about 5 minutes. (Do not add too much water or carrots will be mushy.)
  3. Uncover and continue to cook over medium-high heat until water evaporates, about 5-7 minutes. Continue to cook a few more minutes to allow carrots to caramelize and begin to slightly brown. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, if desired.
