Vegetables can be caramelized on the stove or in the oven. Carrots and parsnips are oven-roasted until tender with bacon, thyme, and maple syrup, marrying sweet elements with savory ones.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack in lower third. Place parsnips, carrots, bacon, and thyme in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with syrup; season with salt and pepper. Toss well to combine. Bake until bottoms of vegetables begin to caramelize and turn dark brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and toss vegetables carefully. Return to oven, and bake until all sides are well browned, about 25 minutes more. Discard bacon and thyme. Serve immediately.

Very easy recipe. Like most others, I dont discard the bacon either. I use parchment paper because it can get quite messy in the oven. It's been one of my go-to side dishes for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.

This is one of my go-to side dishes for the holidays. I always use parchment paper because it can get pretty messy in the oven, but then it always looks and tastes delicious with dinner.

As a beginner I found this recipe very "do-able" and everyone liked it so much at Thanksgiving last year that I am making it again this year. I also left the bacon in and it tasted fantastic!

I tried it tonight but with the carrots diagonally sliced and the parsnips sliced somewhat irregularly but about the same size as the carrot pieces. I also did not discard the bacon (which I had in about 3/4" pieces). Those who don't serve the bacon most likely ate it on the sly in the kitchen. Only complaint I have: I searched for a parsnip recipe with under 30 minutes cooking/prep time. This has 45 minutes cooking time, plus prep.

My family loves this recipe, even the parsnip non-fans. However, we do NOT discard the bacon.
