If you want to eat healthy, just wrap your healthy food in bacon and syrup. Win-win!
- 3 lbs. whole carrots
- 1 1⁄2 lbs. bacon
- 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your indirect grill or smoker to 400°. This can also be done in the oven, if needed.
Thoroughly scrub and peel each carrot. Wrap each carrot in a piece of bacon, overlapping the ends so they are secured. Sprinkle each carrot with salt and pepper.
Place the wrapped carrots on the grill grates (or on a baking sheet, if using the oven). Close the lid and cook for 25–30 minutes or until the bacon is golden and crisp.
During the last 5 minutes of grilling, brush the carrots with the maple syrup.
Grill until the syrup starts to bubble, then remove from the grill and serve.
