These beautifully glazed carrots are colorful and dressed up enough for Christmas dinner. They have become such a favorite side dish that I often double the easy one-skillet recipe!

"Just made this yesterday for Easter dinner. Everyone liked them, especially hard-to-please Husband. I did pre-cook the carrots the day before because we do not like crisp-tender cooked vegetables. I then reheated them for 5 minutes in the microwave while sautéing the onions and continued with the recipe. I will definitely make these again."
