Yet another from my treasure trove of old recipes newly found. I really cannot even guess where this dish came from, but I know why it was saved among the TrTr. DH views potatoes as a nearly religious requirement of every meal & I view garlic as 1 of God's greatest food gifts to mankind. I hope you will see things our way, try it & enjoy!

My family raved about this dish all evening long. I used Yukon gold potatoes, and they were still a little too crunchy after 45 minutes, so next time I'll cut them smaller or use a different variety of potato. The garlic/balsamic sauce tossed with the potatoes really made those potatoes so flavorful though. And being so simple to prepare will ensure that this shall be a staple potato recipe in my house. Thanks for sharing your recipe, twissis. Made for your awesome week 14 win in the 2013 Football Pool.

I am not putting any stars because I don't want to change the ratings. Made this as written except the grocery store had no basil in stock so I had to use dried basil. Maybe this was the problem because we had seven people sit down for dinner and no one liked the potatoes. Thanks anyway.

MMMMMM! wanted some grilled potatoes that had more than just onions and butter on them. Looked for something with balsamic vinegar and this was perfect!! may add a little bit of cayenne pepper next time!!
