Balsamic Roasted Sweet Potatoes

If you are looking for a healthy Thanksgiving side dish recipe this year, these Balsamic Roasted Sweet Potatoes are a fantastic alternative to candied yams. Yes, I know traditional candied yams are swimming in butter and melted marshmallow and nothing can quite compare to that, but these sweet potatoes are a LOT better for you and a great way to help you stay on track this holiday season. Plus, they are incredibly easy to prepare, requiring just 3 steps and a small handful of ingredients…most of which you probably already have on hand. And they are so delicious, you won’t be making them just at Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

    Hi, I love so many of your recipe’s but every time I try to print one of them I just can’t get it to work. I would like to be able to print just the recipe and not the whole article. Is there something that I’m missing or could do to remedy this problem?
