Onion Bacon Baby Carrots by Helen A Garner

2 lg. sweet onions, sliced
1 T. oil
2 lbs. fresh baby carrots, halved length-wise
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 T. butter
1/2 cup French-fried onions
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup green onions, chopped

In a large skillet, cook the sweet onions in the oil over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked onions, carrots, salt, and pepper. Toss to combine. Transfer to a greased, shallow 3-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 400° for 40 to 45 minutes or until tender.

Stir in the syrup and butter. Sprinkle the French-fried onions and bacon on top. Bake, uncovered, 5 more minutes or until onions are brown.

Sprinkle with the green onions. Serve with a slotted spoon.
