These Balsamic Roasted Strawberries are the perfect addition to any summer meal. The combination of fresh berries with a little tang from the balsamic vinegar and the sweetness from the honey make these roasted berries a delicious topping for many dishes.

Every year we take a trip to a local farm and come home with an abundance of strawberries and this is one of our favorite recipes to make with them. Not only are these delicious to eat on their own, but they also taste great on ice cream, pancakes, waffles, or brownies.

Ingredients and Variations

​One of my favorite things about this easy recipe is that you only need three simple ingredients. Pick up some fresh berries on your next trip to the grocery store so that you can enjoy this tasty dish. 

  • Fresh strawberries 
  • Honey – Instead of using honey try swapping it out for pure maple syrup. You will still get a great sweetness with a little maple flavor. 
  • Aged balsamic vinegar – You need the vinegar, not the balsamic reduction.  

How to Make Balsamic Roasted Strawberries

Making these roasted strawberries is super simple. Just follow these step-by-step instructions so you can enjoy this dish. 

  1. Preheat oven to 350° Farenheit.
  2. In a medium bowl, pour honey and balsamic vinegar over strawberries. 
  3. Gently fold the ingredients together. 
  4. Place strawberries on a baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes or until the strawberries are soft, but not mushy.

How To Store

Storage – Store leftover roasted strawberries in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

Freezing – I don’t recommend freezing the cooked strawberries as they will become mushy when thawed. 

Reheating – Reheat the strawberries in a skillet over medium heat or in the microwave until they are warmed through. 

Sandra’s Pro Tips

I’ve made this recipe several times now, and I’ve come up with a few helpful tips to share with you from my recipe testing. 

  • Place the strawberries in a single layer on your baking dish, if they overlap then they won’t roast evenly.
  • If you are enjoying these on there try garnishing them with fresh basil, greek yogurt, or even a sprinkle of goat cheese for an amazing flavor.  
  • Want to add some additional flavor? Try adding a pinch of salt to your strawberries. 
  • You may need to quarter large strawberries so that they cook evenly with the rest of your fresh berries.

  1. We grow whacky strange shaped Quinalt Strawberries in our garden that are very perishable. I have been trying to keep up with them, the raspberries and the blueberries. So thrilled to find this recipe. I rarely have more than a pint of berries, but it works out perfect as a topping to my breakfast (yogurt, oatmeal or cottage cheese). Truly these strawberries are one of the best treats I’ve ever had!

  2. I made this last night…AMAZING!! You are right, it’s good with so many things…I had it for breakfast mixed with greek yogurt and as a late night snack with ice cream. Makes my mouth sing!

  3. Oh it sounds and looks like you had so much fun! I’m with you on using my berries as soon as I get them. Nothing is better than fresh and even a day or two can make them not look so nice! Great recipe and love its versatality
