"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."
"Simple, fast and really delicious! Love the sweet and salty taste."
"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!"
"these were really good. Only change made was a reduction in salt and splenda brown for the sugar so hubby stays healthy (me too!) I'll be doing these for Christmas dinner. Thanks for another winner Lorac"
"Lovely. I put a piece of cooking paper on the cookie sheet and avoided a sticky clean-up job. Great source of Vitamin A and not cloyingly sweet. Thanks!"
"Delicious! I scaled it back just a little and used 2 yams. I love the balsamic glaze! Thanks Lorac! Get well soon!"
"I never knew yams could taste so GOOD! I used vegan butter and the results were outstanding. It will definitely be a keeper for our household!"
"So easy - and so good. I cut the recipe in half for the three of us and it was perfect. What a great way to serve Yams - and they look nice on the table too!"
"A delicious way to serve yams. All the flavors blended together to create a lightly sweet glaze with a touch of twang from the vinegar. The dish was very easy to prepare and the timing was perfect. A great addition to my Thanksgiving dinner."
"I made these for Thanksgiving dinner and they are truly outstanding and the recipe is so easy. The mixture of sweet, salty, and buttery-- WOW! It's delicious!"
"I liked the simplicity of this recipe and it certainly is tasty! Thanks so much!"
"How can anything so simple be so good? There wasn't a single scrap of this left, wish I had made twice as much. I followed the recipe exactly, and see no reason to change a thing. Wish this thing had 10 stars."
"This turned out so well, I will definitely make it again! I used a baking dish instead of a cookie sheet so that it could cook in the sauce, and I could stir it while it was cooking and recoat the yams. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Yummy!"
