The addition of crisp bacon to the carrots gives a nice lightly smoked favor. It has been a favorite with my family for many years. It originated in the "Treasury of Country Recipes" published by Land O Lakes about 15 years ago. Even people who don't normally eat carrots love this dish! You can easily double the recipe for a potluck dish. If you want to decrease the fat, just substitute light margarine and turkey bacon.

DH and I loved these carrots. Thanks for posting, it is a wonderful alternative to the same old glazed carrots.
