The kids ate this happily with no dip, I think that speaks for itself. Very good. I threw everything except the yams into a frying pan and waited for it to thicken at med-high heat, then tossed in the yams and tossed them to cover well. Then put them on a cookie sheet lined with non stick foil. Clean up was easy, prep was easy, perfect!

I knew I was going to like this recipe, it is sweet potatoes and balsamic vinegar after all. But lord have mercy, add in that caramelization and it was like having dessert on the same plate with dinner. Yummy stuff!

Excellent combo~~we love balsamic! I also sprinkled the yams with some course sea salt & freshly ground pepper before roasting. Make sure to not cut your cubes too small, as they will be done before getting a real chance to caramelize. Thanks!

This what is known as Heaven on a Plate. Served with simple pan grilled boneless pork chips and steamed Brussels sprouts. Made for Lorac for her cookathon January 2014.

I personally really enjoyed these and kept snitching them from the baking pan as I put the finishing touches on dinner. DH was slightly less enthusiastic about them; he didn't care for the tangy flavor from the vinegar. But he ate them without too much complaint, so they can't have been that bad. ;) Thanks for posting! PS - A tip: Make sure the sauce thickens a little before you toss the yams, otherwise, it won't stick very well.

Fabulous! The balsamic vinaigrette takes the sweet edge off too.

Easy to prepare. I did not have brown sugar, so I used white sugar. It was done in 20 minutes.

I tried these for friends at Christmas dinner and while I wasn't totally loving them, everyone else really liked them (mostly boys/men!). But then, since I had leftovers, I ate them the next few days and I loved them! Weird. So, I think I'll make them again. Thanks!
