When I first told my sister I was going to make this dish, she thought it sounded disgusting. I chose to make it because I like trying new things, and I had never seen these two things paired together before. I've got to say that this combination was a delightful surprise. I thought it was absolutely delicious, and even my sister who dislikes sweet potatoes said it came out better than she expected. I'll make this over and over again in the years to come.

For those who don't like sweet potatoes, this is the recipe to try! I was afraid to go too heavy on the feta, but I should have. It definitely makes the recipe.

The potatoes did not cook in the microwave in 10 minutes; they probably needed 20, but I went ahead and put them in the oven after 12 or so with the cheese and balsamic. Only the ones touching the edges and bottom of the dish were tender enough to eat. The flavor, however, was very unique and good; it was a nice change from the too-sweet sweet potato dishes I normally see.

Hate to give a bad review, but this really was not to our liking. I had high hopes for the flavor combination, but it -- and the presentation -- turned out to be quite unappealing. We didn't eat it after two bites.

very good combo.... omit balsamic and add rosemary and olive oil drizzle for the best sweet potatoes ever!

i love sweet potatoes so not much can ruin them for me. this recipe was good for the most part. however, i used feta cheese crumbles and they didn't really melt well. i also tried this first with the tomato/basil feta and then again with garlic herb feta. both were fine but the balsamic over-powers them both. all in all a decent recipe but not one i'll make often.

Different way to fix a sweet potato. I made this with one sweet potato and one yukon gold (husband) potato. It was very good, but make sure you like the taste of feta cheese. I drizzled a little more vinegar on it after it came out of the broiler. Thanks for sharing.
