Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables. Using crinkle-cut or baby carrots in recipes provide so much texture and crunch for soups, casseroles, or salads. Not to mention carrots are high in beta-carotene and other antioxidants that are so good for your health. Normally, this recipe is cooked on the stove top, but because I wanted to have them ready when I got home from church yesterday, I decided to try making this great recipe in the oven so I could cook it along with my King Ranch Chicken casserole. I suppose I could have pre-made the Honey Glazed Carrots and heated them up quickly in the microwave or on the stove when I got home, but it sure was nice having these already ready to go. They turned out just as tasty as if I had made them on the stove top, too.
Honey Glazed Carrots is an incredibly easy and delicious dish you can prepare in a snap. The sweet flavors of honey and brown sugar glaze the carrots and provide such a tasty flavor. This recipe is kid friendly, too. Many kids will learn to enjoy carrots after trying this sweet recipe.
I found this recipe years ago shortly after we married in the Pillsbury Cookbook, 1972 edition. It has only 5 ingredients and is a wonderful way to serve carrots. If you need a quick way to throw together a side dish for dinner, a special meal, or even as a holiday dish, consider giving this Honey Glazed Carrots recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed. We love this quick and easy recipe, and we believe you will too.
The pictures below show how to make this in the oven. The directions in the recipe direct you to make this on the stove top. Regardless, you will have directions on how to do this either way–whichever is convenient for you at the time. It’s a win-win no matter what you do!
These sweet carrots are a great way to get your kids to eat their carrots!
Here’s a close up so you can see the glaze over top.
This 5-ingredient recipe is fantastic. So quick and easy.
Whether you bake these in the oven or prepare them on the stove top these carrots are super simple to make, but big on taste. We’ve made this recipe a lot of times throughout the years.
Here’s what I did.
Spray casserole dish with cooking spray. I made two batches of this recipe so ingredients will be doubled.
I love using crinkle cut carrots for this recipe, but you can use simple, sliced carrots, or even petite baby carrots. If you use baby carrots they will probably take longer to cook through. Increase your cooking time.
Place frozen carrots into casserole dish.
Add brown sugar.
Here I’ve sprinkled the brown sugar over top of the other ingredients.
Drizzle honey over top of the other ingredients.
Bake about 45 minutes at 350. If you’re using baby carrots you will probably need to bake an hour for the carrots to cook all the way through.
Remove casserole dish from oven. Stir well to glaze all the carrots.
Here I’ve served the carrots. You will need to stir well before dishing out each serving to make sure the carrots get plenty of the butter/brown sugar/honey mixture.
Here’s an individual serving.
Here’s the recipe.

These Honey Glazed Carrots are so easy to make. You can have this ready to go into your oven in less than 5 minutes!
