How to Cook Oven-Baked Carrot Fries

  1. Preheat your oven to 360˚F/180˚C. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Peel the carrots and cut them into sticks. Add them to a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil, sea salt, pepper, onion powder, and minced rosemary. Coat the carrots with the spices.
  3. Place the carrots on the tray and arrange them in a single layer. Also, add the rosemary sprigs.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes.
  5. While the carrots roast, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to brown it evenly. Once crisp, remove from skillet.
  6. Remove the carrots from the oven and add the crispy bacon to the baking tray, along with the carrots. Roast for 5 more minutes.
  7. Serve hot for maximum crispiness, with your favorite dip.
