If you are in need of a holiday side dish idea, then you are in the right place! These garlic butter carrots are SO good! I wasn’t sure how I would feel about adding savory flavors to carrots, usually I prefer sweeter carrots like Glazed Carrots but they were amazing! Roasting the garlic at the beginning really was part of the perfection of the carrots, it brought out the flavor incredibly well.

I tried to crisp the carrots up even more when I reheated them, I thought they tasted best with the outside pretty crispy and the inside really tender.
