Kevin...at the end of the recipes you have the nutrients..but not an amount. Is the calorie count and such for the whole 2 lbs of carrots and bacon or for how many? and I love everything you do!

Kevin....you list 328 carbs for this dish...even for the ENTIRE dish, that's way more than could possible be in it for the ingredients listed? The maple syrup only adds 8.67 carbs per serving? One medium Carrot has 6 carbs...and bacon has NONE.... Where are all those carbs coming from??

Pam Jacobs said...

I'm figuring about 15 carbs per medium sized carrot...and about 4 carrots per serving...60 carbs per serving? ANYWAY...these look INCREDIBLE...and yes, I will be serving them for Thanksgiving this year!

Delicious! I used 1/2 carrots and 1/2 parsnips. I used maple syrup for the carrots and ginger syrup for the parsnips. Served with roasted cider brined turkey.

Vee C: I'm glad you liked them and the parsnips in ginger syrup sounds amazing!
