"I was so impressed with these glazed carrots and caramelized onions served over baked butternut squash that I assured getting the recipe. Great topping the Butternut squash but also makes a wonderful vegetable dish that has become a family favorite and makes for a great holiday side on it's own"

We loved these carrots made this way! The honey and orange juice go really well and I love the slight snap of the carrots. The only thing that I did different was add a bit of salt and black pepper. It paired well with our Corned Beef dinner tonight. Thank you Gerry for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.

Made as written for the Billboard Tag Game, mainly since we love both main ingredients & I had a bit of the orange sauce I to use from your roast duck recipe. It's an easy-fix & well-flavored, but we found it a bit on the "too sweet" side, so I'll reduce the honey to 1 tbsp for its encore. It was served w/lasagna, garlic bread & cucumber salad. A plated pic will post later today. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

I didn't make this to go over squash. Just had it as a side with prime rib roast and double stuffed baked potatoes on the grill. I plan to make them over squash for Thanksgiving though. Yes, they are that good!

These were wonderful and enjoyed by all -- made as directed but used a bit less onion than recipe called for. Thanks for sharing!

These carrots are absolutely wonderful! DH was pleasantly surprised that they were not too sweet. Will be adding these to our holiday table this year. Thank you for sharing Gerry! Made for Billboard Recipe tag.
