Slow Cooker Glazed Carrots

I can’t believe that it’s already time for Thanksgiving recipes! I don’t think I had a single side dish recipe on my site until this brown sugar slow cooker glazed carrots recipe! This is so perfect for not just Thanksgiving but also Christmas, Easter, or any holiday feast.  The best part is that you just need to pop a few ingredients in a crock pot and just forget about it until it’s time to serve dinner.  These carrots don’t take up any valuable stove top or oven room which is crucial when you are making a big meal for a crowd!

I whipped up these slow cooker glazed carrots to go with a steak dinner a few days back and they paired so perfectly with the garlic mashed potatoes and steak! They add just the right amount of sweetness to a meal and are so delicious! Glazed carrots are just such a simple way to take plain carrots and just make them the star of show with just a little work and a few ingredients!

Notes on this slow cooker glazed carrots recipe

  • Try using honey instead of brown sugar for a fun spin on this recipe.
  • Baby carrots are definitely the easiest but I used big carrots and chopped them up! Either works!

    The carrots look just delicious – perfectly candied and so amazing! I never would have thought to use a slow cooker either. Oven space is always such a premium during the holidays. What a great recipe!
