Bacon Wrapped…

Oven Roasted Vegetables with Maple Glaze ALL wrapped in bacon. I have a theory that if you wrap anything in bacon, it becomes mysteriously delicious.

Anyone share this theory with me? Bacon Wrapped Cardboard… Shoes… Parsnips.

Just kidding. I love parsnips. Yet I know three other people that happen to live in my house who would rather tackle eating a sneaker than a parsnip.

However, tie those parsnips up in bacon and drizzle them with cider maple glaze, and we have a different scenario on our hands.

Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven Roasted Vegetables with Maple Glaze are a surefire way to get your kids to eat their veggies, and will make a great addition to any holiday meal this season.

They are visually appealing and individually portioned. Roasted vegetable bundles are a great side dish for any meal, even Thanksgiving!

Roasted Vegetable Ingredients List

  • Carrots – For color and sweetness.
  • Parsnips – Offer an earthy bitter note to this recipe.
  • Asparagus – Perky and crisp
  • Thick cut bacon – What brings these little bundled beauties together.
  • Pure maple syrup – The perfect touch of sweetness in the glaze.
  • Apple cider vinegar – For tang.
  • Ground cumin and ginger – Spicy depth adds that little extra something.
  • Salt – Always needed.

How To Roast Vegetables In The Oven

    1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F, and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Trim all the veggies, cutting the carrots and parsnips into long pieces approximately the same size as the asparagus. Use your asparagus as a guide.
    1. Separate the vegetables into bundles with about 3 asparagus spears, 3 carrot spears and 3 parsnip spears in each bundle. Tie each bundle with a piece of bacon and lay them on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

  1. See our printable recipe card at the end of the post for the Maple Glaze section of the recipe!

Warning: This is not a great make-ahead recipe. The bacon and asparagus are best when fresh out of the oven. However, you can prep the bundles and make the glaze a day ahead. Then refrigerate until ready to roast.

Wait, But Aren’t Parsnips Bitter?

The slightly bitter quality of parsnips actually balance the sweetness of the carrots and glaze to make a decidedly well-rounded dish.

Who would have thunk?!

Oven Roasted Vegetables with Maple Glaze are a new Collier family favorite… even with the parsnips!

The Perfect Thanksgiving or Christmas Vegetable Side Dish

Consider adding roasted vegetables to your Thanksgiving menu this year.

Wouldn’t they look pretty sitting next to sliced roasted turkey, homemade yeast rolls and cranberry sauce?

I think so.

  10. HOT DIGGITY DOG! These are so addicting. I’m so glad I halved the recipe for my husband and me or I would have kept on eating them till they were gone. I still did, but thankfully there were a lot less. Wow, these are amazing. I can’t even get over how good they are. I. Want. More. Now.

  21. i’d love to make these for an upcoming holiday dinner but any suggestions on what to replace the bacon with to make it vegetarian friendly??

  22. I tried these last night. They were absolutely delicious, and I didn’t feel guilty for eating them. Great recipe!

  23. These were delicious. I am adding them to Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks

  24. What a fun way to eat veggies! Love!!

  28. That cider maple glaze sounds divine! Love this festive bundles, Sommer :)

  29. This looks yummy! The kids would love to try it!

  30. Stunning presentation! :) home run. parsnips bitter? I wouldn’t describe them that way but its your taste buds. I like the hit of spicy and crunch that they give. My son calls them ‘the white carrot ones’. They are wonderful roasted, cooked in a stew, mashed :) sorry felt I needed to further represent one of fav veggies in a better light. Maybe look for smaller ones? Maybe its a size problem – big = bitter? Definitely making this though :)

  31. Wow! So creative – bacon does make everything better!

  32. These look amazing!!! I can’t wait to try them! Thank you for the great recipe!

  34. This will definitely get me to eat my veggies without a fuss!

  35. These look so fancy, and yet so simple. I love this idea!

  36. These look attractive. Perhaps for my next family dinner. Bitter parsnips? You malign parsnips, even saying you like them. Perhaps your supplier is selling old stuff. Parsnips are at least as sweet as carrots and I eat both raw.

    • Hey Jan, no, they aren’t old, but they are HUGE. I find large parsnips to be a bit bitter. I still enjoy them, but not the kids.

      …Expect in this recipes. ;)
