Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish ~ Buttery Carrots

If you’re looking for a delicious side dish to serve with your Thanksgiving meal, look no further! These super simple, very delicious carrots will enhance any meal, and your kids will eat them!

Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish ~ Buttery Carrots

To prepare, simply julienne 5 large carrots. Melt 3-4 TBS butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add carrots and saute for 15-20 minutes. I prefer a slightly crunchy carrot, so I tend to under cook mine. {I have been accused of being a little weird, though.} You cook them as long as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper and serve!

I make these for my little brother, but with sweet seasonings (nutmeg, cinnamon, and a touch of honey), instead of savory. He loves them!
