Whenever I make a batch of these roasted parmesan carrots, I find myself snacking on them the rest of the night. I’m telling you… if you haven’t ever tried roasted carrots, you need to. My kids gobble them right up.

  1. These carrots look amazing! I’m definitely going to make them with dinner one night this week!


  2. Looks so tasty! Do you cut carrots into thinner slices, 1/2 or 1/4 them, or just how they come?

    • We used baby carrots, so no cutting was required. If you get uncut carrots, I’d do quarter inch matchsticks or disks. :)

  3. I made these roasted carrots today – they disappeared in record time. Thank you,Jamielyn, for this yummy recipe!

  4. woww, i love it :)

  5. i do this with turnip and it is great substitute for French fries!

  6.  I love these. Sometimes add a bit of honey to them too. 

  7. The recipe says to serve right away.   Can they also be served room temperature or does the parm/panko topic get soggy?  Would love to serve them for Easter buffet — they look delicious!

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      I think room temperature would work! Just make it the morning you plan on serving and do not refrigerate because yes, the topping would lose it’s texture. :)

  8. tried these for my very picky sister…. we both loved them. once a week at least.

  9. Amanda B. Epperson Reply

    Love this dish… we have it at least once a week at my house.

  10. I made this recipe, and the carrots practically vanished into thin air, they were eaten so fast! We love them, thanks for the great recipe.


  11. Hello there, obviously fresh is the best, but trying to use what i already have. Can I use garlic powder and Kraft parmesan in the plastic container or will it be very much different? If you think I can use, is it the same measurements as you listed? Thank you!

    • Hi Felicia!

      Yes, you could use garlic powder — I’d use a little less than one teaspoon. For the parmesan, yes, you can make that substitution (same amount) but it might not melt as well since it has an anti-caking agent in it.

      Let us know how it turns out! :)

  12. These were amazing. This recipe turn carrots into something amazing!

  13. I want to try it now. Thank you!

  14. I made these with our Thanksgiving dinner today and they were a huge hit. They were gone in no time. I skipped the breadcrumbs though because we have some gluten free family members. I think these are going to become a regular thing at our house now.

  15. Made this for Thanksgiving and the carrots were terrific –got lots of compliments. I’m making them again to go with Champagne glazed ham for our Christmas Eve dinner. Love ’em!
