Tossed with a brown sugar and butter glaze, these carrots taste slightly sweet and look perfectly shiny.

Directions

  1. Peel the carrots, then slice each one into rounds.
  2. Place the carrot coins in a microwave-safe bowl, cover them with water, and cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
  3. Microwave for 6 to 7 minutes or until the carrots are tender but not mushy. Drain the water and set the carrots aside.
  4. In a small frying pan, melt the butter, stir in the brown sugar and water, and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the carrot coins and toss to coat with the brown sugar mixture. Cook on low for 3 to 4 minutes or until the carrots are thoroughly glazed.

Excellent. I had some baby carrots that I needed to use up and this was perfect. I had to microwave them a little longer (11 minutes) but they turned out wonderful. I used 2 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of water. I will make these again for sure. Made for a bonus tage in Pot Luck tag game.

Thanks for the good idea! I made this for dinner last week with pork chops and potatoes and it was a great side dish! I had found pre-cut carrot coins at the grocery store, so that was extra nice and easy too. I'll make them again.
