Orange Spice Glazed Carrots


Orange Spice Glazed Carrots are the perfect holiday side dish that looks amazing, tastes delicious, and only takes minutes to prep. Plus you free up your oven by using a crockpot!

With so many holiday dishes taking up the oven to bake or roast, I was delighted to find this recipe in “What’s Cookin’ at First Security” that uses the crockpot. It’s a recipe where you throw in your ingredients and leave it alone. Once the carrots are tender, you thicken the sauce and serve. That is all there is to this easy, eight-ingredient Orange Spice Glazed Carrot recipe.

“What’s Cookin’” makes a great gift for the holiday season. I’m purchasing a copy for my Dirty Santa Gift because everyone loves new recipes.


This recipe is so straightforward and easy that only one tip is needed!

  • I always use a crockpot liner for any recipe made in the crockpot. The cleanup is easy and the liner can be thrown away. That’s another plus during the holidays.
