A perfect alternative for sweet potatoes OR corn at your holiday table!
1 large bag baby carrots $2.99
3 tablespoons butter $0.18
1 tablespoon brown sugar $0.01
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg $0.17
Total Cost $3.35
1.) Place all of the carrots in a medium saucepan over high heat and boil until carrots are fork-tender.
2.) Just before carrots are completely finished boiling, melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once butter has melted and carrots are tender, transfer the carrots from the pot to the frying pan using a slotted spoon.
3.) Once all the carrots are in the frying pan, toss so that they become completely coated with butter.
4.) Sprinkle the brown sugar and the nutmeg into the frying pan and mix so that the sugar dissolves and the carrots become completely coated in butter, sugar, and spice.
5.) Continue to cook over medium-high heat. The carrots are done when they have a shiny glaze on them and the sugars have turned the outside of the carrots crispy, golden brown.
6.) Serve and enjoy!
