Roasted Balsamic Sweet Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 30 min.
I am thinking this is one of those recipes you either love or not so much. I love sweet potatoes, and have prepared them in many different ways, but this was a "not so much" for my family. The balsamic vinegar gave the dish that infamous "wilted bacon salad vibe" with the sweet tang and bacon. But the different textures were not appealing to my family.
I made about 1/3 recipe since I only had 2 sweet potatoes left. I didn't think this recipe was quite as time consuming as indicated in other reviews. I paired this with a simple fish entree so the time factor was mitigated. Taste was phenomenal and consistency of the potatoes was perfect, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. I was told this was the best sweet potato recipe I have made.
These sweet potatoes are awesome! I thought the recipe was no more difficult to prepare than any of the other side dishes I typically make and the end results are absolutely delicious. My husband was a bit skeptical of a savory sweet potato recipe at first, but he ended up having 3 helpings and just raved about it! I will definitely be making this recipe often!
A lot of work goes into this dish. I primarily made it for my husband as I don't like sweet potatoes much. I did try it though and I found it sweet, but he said it was amazing, so I gave it five stars for his review.
This is a very nice savory treatment of sweet potatoes. The reviewer below was correct in reporting that you will be giving this side dish a bit more time than one you simply throw together--keep your main dish simple, in other words. I put the potatoes into the skillet and stirred the sauce around them instead of pouring the sauce over the potatoes.
My family loved it, it was a bit of a challenge dealing with raw potatoes. Mine didn't turn out as pretty as the picture. It's defiantly a dish that takes priority when your cooking multiple dishes.
