Cracker Barrel Baby Carrots

13 09 2011

We have a restaurant in our small town called Cracker Barrel. There menu is what I would call down home cooking or comfort food. Things like fried Okra and collard greens are on the menu. Our family loves their baby carrots and when I got a bag of carrots in our Bountiful Basket for 2 weeks in a row I was out to copy that recipe. The restaurant uses baby carrots but I just cut my carrots into bite sized pieces and they turned out great. It was a big hit at my house and got rid of a lot of carrots.
