Balsamic and Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Roasted sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper are delicious, but sometimes it’s nice to have something a little different – and that’s where these Balsamic and Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes come in.

These caramelized, spiced potatoes are sweet, crisp and so versatile. They taste great in sweet salads with nuts, as a side dish or even as a snack straight off the pan (my favorite way to enjoy them 😉 ). The smaller you cut the potatoes, the faster they will take to cook, so be sure to chop finely if you’re in a rush!

However you choose to enjoy these sweet potatoes, I hope that you and whoever you’re cooking for love them!

    I have now made this twice and both times, this dish has turned out delicious! The balsamic and maple flavors compliment each other well. I love how the glaze gets crunchy on the sweet potatoes. I think I’m adding this to my Thanksgiving menu this year.
