Balsamic Sweet Potatoes

So often sweet potatoes are given a sweet treatment with delicious butter, brown sugar, or honey. Personally, I like to take them to the savory side with things like olive oil, garlic, rosemary, or in this case bacon and balsamic.

Gone are the days of simmering down balsamic vinegar into a glaze for me. Yes, I used to do this regularly but since discovering off the shelf balsamic glazes, I have not looked back. Have you tried drizzling balsamic glaze on your vegetables or berries?

I do stop short of drinking it from the bottle, however balsamic glaze has become a go to condiment for us, right there with homemade ranch and ketchup. It brings out just the right amount of sweetness when tossed with sweet potatoes. The sweet combined with the salt bacon make for the perfect bite.

Best way to Roast Sweet Potatoes

Roasting sweet potatoes result in the tastiest little morsels. I like the crispness of the outside combined with the soft insides. The salty, savoriness is so good with the natural sweetness of the potatoes.

Toss your sweet potato cubes with olive oil, salt, and pepper on a sheet pan. The sweet potatoes roast up soft and fluffy on the inside with nice crispy edges. To serve, simply drizzle with balsamic glaze and crumbled bacon.

This easy side dish could accompany literally any meal. I like to serve balamic sweet potatoes with pork chops and green beans for a meal everyone will enjoy.

Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven roasted vegetables brings such a simple deliciousness to any meal. I love the fact that you can roast literally any vegetable. Even cabbage and tomatoes!

Parmesan zucchini can best be described as crispy, and delicious, the best way possible to eat zucchini. Seriously so good my kids devoured seconds.

I love the sweetness that roasted carrots deliver as their natural sugars caramelize! They are fabulous when tossed with nothing more than oil, salt, and pepper.
