Honey glazed carrots roasted to perfection, tossed in butter + fresh herbs. The easiest (and tastiest) side dish to any meal!
This has been my go-to side dish for weeks now, and they will definitely be making an appearance in our Easter spread. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s oh-so-buttery with the lightest honey glaze.
It truly is the most perfect side dish to any meal – to any dinner or any holiday gathering. And it’s not heavy at all. Nope, it’s simply perfection.
You can keep the carrots whole or slice them to your liking. You can also add other fresh herbs, like dill or rosemary. You simply can’t go wrong here. You just can’t.
