Honey Glazed Baby Carrots

Here's an easy variation of your regular steamed or roasted carrots. The glaze enhances the carrots' natural sweetness without being too sugary. Serve them next time you make a roast beast.
They're SO good!

2-3 cups small baby carrots
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of kosher salt

Heat oven to 400F.
Melt butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar, honey, nutmeg, and salt. Pour mixture over carrots and gently toss until well coated. Place in oven, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until carrots are tender.

If you don't have honey, you can easily substitute maple or corn syrup.
