This side dish is a more unique take on sweet potatoes (or yams).  It goes with a large variety of main dishes and tends to disappear quickly 😉

4 pounds sweet potatoes or yams

2 Spanish onions, sliced into 1/4 inch rings

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

Preheat your oven to 425°F.  Peel and cube your sweet potatoes/yams.  Toss potatoes with olive oil to coat and season with salt and pepper.  Spread across two foil lined baking sheets and bake at 425°F until fork tender, approximately 30-40 minutes, rotating halfway through.  In a nonstick skillet heat 2 tbl. olive oil over medium high heat.  When hot add onions, season with some kosher salt, and sauté until soft and translucent.  Add Balsamic vinegar and dijon and sauté an additional 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in honey.  Toss onion mixture with roasted sweet potatoes/yams and serve warm.
