Balsamic Roasted Potatoes - A Tasty Twist on the Usual Potato Roast

I have said before, I love potatoes.  I think it is in my DNA (being part Irish and all).  So when I saw this recipe for Balsamic Roasted Potatoes, I just knew I had to try it.  You see, along with my love of the tuber, I am developing a deep abiding love for balsamic vinegar. 

Just one more reason why this food blogging is a great thing, it exposes you to flavors and spices you may not have experienced before.  Balsamic vinegar falls into this category.  I don't think I had ever had it before two years ago.  But then again, two years ago, I only had four recipes in my cooking repitoire (and one of those was for Tollhouse cookies). 

Back to the potatoes, I liked them...alot.  Mr. Gooch...not as much.  I do think that next time I make them, I will add some rosemary to the mix.  I just didn't think the thyme had enough punch to hold up against the balsamic.
