    So easy and goes with so many things. Love the nutmeg, just gives it that little extra something!

    I loved these potatoes! The balsamic gave it a strong flavor...would not want all the time, but nice for a change.

    These potatoes were excellent. I substituted a large yellow pepper for a few of the potatoes to add some more veggies to our meal. The only issue I had was the potatoes started to stick in the skillet so I used a little white wine to deglaze the pan and make sure the seasonings went with the potatoes and were not left behind in the pan.

    We love Balsamic Vinegar on almost anything in my family. The flavor in these potatoes is amazing. It gives me another option on the potato side dish! Love it!
