This Girls Night recipe comes from our very own founder, Desiree Noisette via Delish. Maple Bacon wrapped carrots are sweet, savory, rich and delicious... and pair perfectly with a bottle of Mermosa Bubbles as an appetizer or side.
- 12 medium carrots, peeled (if you want them already peeled, try your local Trader Joe's)
- 12 strips bacon
- 1/4 c maple syrup
- Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap each carrot in one strip of the bacon and place bacon ends down on a baking sheet. Brush all over with maple syrup and season with black pepper.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and brush with remaining syrup. Bake 15 minutes more or until carrots are tender and the bacon is nice & crispy. The meatiness of the bacon pairs perfectly with Mermosa Bubbles AND Mersecco, so you might want to get a bottle of each!
