BESIDES being colorful, this side dish complements a variety of meats…pork, beef or poultry, certainly a fitting vegetable for harvest meals. The mild flavor of the carrots is enhanced by the bacon and onion combination.

"This was a good vegetable to add to the table, but was beat out by the stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, and gravy. The bacon makes it a hit."

"I am trying to get my husband closer to his roots. So I decided to look up German recipes. He ate it and really liked it. This is going to be made often."
