Glazed Carrots

Lately, I have been primarily cooking a meat and one or two veggies for dinner. I never cook carrots-my family doesn't LOVE cooked carrots. I thought I would give this a try. I thought it was great - if you like cooked carrots. My oldest is always after me to cook healthy. These aren't necessarily healthy with the butter and brown sugar but very yummy! I think these would be great for a potluck - doubled or even tripled. Very easy and perfect for a crowd!



Glazed Carrots

1 pkg (16 oz) baby carrots
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 envelope ranch dressing mix

Place carrots in saucepan with about an inch of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 8 or minutes or until desired texture-crisp but tender; Drain and set aside. In same pan, melt butter, with brown sugar and ranch dressing mix until blended - add carrots; cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until nicely glazed!
