TREACLE GLAZED BACON WRAPPED CARROTS

Here’s an instant way to spruce up your Christmas veggies & make a tasty but easy side dish. This streaky bacon wrapped carrots recipe will have everyone fighting over the last veggie for once! If the bacon wasn’t tasty enough, we’ve glazed them in black treacle for the tastiest carrot recipe you’ll see this year. Let us know if you add them to your Christmas Dinner or Sunday Roast!

Ingredients

• 1 x pack of The Jolly Hog Streaky Bacon
• 1 x pack of carrots
• Black Treacle
• Olive Oil

Method

• Preheat the oven to 220.
• Boil your carrots for 3-5 minutes just to get them softened for cooking.
• Peel your carrots and top the bottom ends off, but you can keep the top bits for an extra impressive looking dish like we did.
• Wrap a streaky bacon rasher around each carrot, starting from top to bottom – you should have lots of experience of this from wrapping Pigs in Blankets! 😉. Use two rashers for the larger carrots and stop half way, tucking the new rasher under the other one to connect them.
• Brush the bacon wrapped carrots with black treacle. Pop it in the microwave for a few seconds in a bowl to make it more easily spreadable, then use a brush to coat the carrots on both side. You can always switch out this step and use our Black Treacle Bacon instead – just cut the slices in half vertically before wrapping.
• Add a touch of pepper and olive oil on top.
• Bake the carrots for 180c fan for 10 mins, then remove and add more treacle and bake for another 15 minutes or until the bacon has caramelised and gone crispy.
