I made this for a family dinner last night. I made a recipe and a half and used balsamic vinegar instead of the sweet vermouth. Balsamic worked wonderfully but made these the ugliest looking potatoes I've ever served to guests LOL Never mind how ugly they were, they were delicious and really popular with even the fussiest diners! No time to take a photo, but as I have all the ingredients to make this again, I'll do so and take it then.
