Don't let the bacon fat scare you off trying this delicious side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 12 cups coarsely shredded carrots (, 2 large carrots should do it)
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped (green and white parts)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place bacon pieces in a four-cup glass measuring cup, cover loosely, and microwave on High until crisp, which will take 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 minutes depending on how strong your microwave is.
  2. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, crumble, and reserve.
  3. Stir remaining ingredients into the bacon fat in measuring cup.
  4. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on High until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with reserved bacon and serve.
  6. This recipe can be cut in half to serve just one, but cut back cooking time.

Made this last night for supper with chicken and potatoes. I was out of green onions so used dried minced onion, about 1 1/4 tsp. Lacked a little zip for me but my 15 month old enjoyed them. Trying to think how to spice it up a little?!
