smoky little carrots in a blanket
Equipment: Baking sheet, parchment paper or aluminum foil. 2 shallow bowls for breading.
  • ½ lb. (1/2 bag) baby carrots (more or less, just keep going until you run out of batter)
  • ¼ c. milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • ½ c. all-purpose flour
  • Olive oil cooking spray (good quality - you can use a Misto with your own oil, if you have one)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the egg and milk in one shallow bowl, and mix the flour, smoked paprika, and salt in another shallow bowl.
  3. Dip each carrot in the egg mixture, then in the flour mixture, and lay flat on the baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart (not squashed together).
  4. Spray the tops of the carrots generously with olive oil. You basically need enough oil that they don't look super-floury. Bake until the carrots are tender and the coating is crispy, about 45 minutes. Eat 'em right away! Enjoy!!
