Balsamic Sweet Potatoes

This is my new favorite sweet potato recipe! I like roasting sweet potatoes so they're a little crispy, but eating them plain can get boring. I found this recipe on


3 T bacon fat or butter, melted
3 lb. sweet potatoes, cubed
1/4 c balsamic vinegar
1/4 c raisins
3 oz. goat cheese
2 T rosemary, minced

Preheat your oven to 425ºF.
Place the cubed sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Pour on your fat and toss around to coat the sweet potatoes very well. Place in the oven and let them get slightly crispy and cooked through–depending on how small you cube, should take about 30 minutes.
While the potatoes are roasting–put the vinegar and raisins in a saute pan and place on the stove over medium heat. Cook until the balsamic vinegar has reduced and plumped the raisins. Keep your eye on it, if you let it go too far, the vinegar will reduce to nothing and scorch your pan. This should take about 10 minutes.
When the sweet potatoes are out of the oven, place them in your serving dish, along with the raisins, any vinegar that’s left in the pan, crumbled goat cheese, rosemary and some salt. Toss around to coat.
