Casserole to use up two large baked sweet potatoes?

Does anyone have a yummy recipe idea to use up two delicious sweet potatoes that are already baked?

Are you vegetarian or GF/DF.....anything like that?

I cube them and ladle chili over them.  Don't know how this started, but we love chili and sweet potatoes.  Along those lines, I think you could cube them and use them w/steames or stir fried veggies over brown rice as well.

I've added sweet potatoes into scrambled eggs. Add in scallions (or sauteed onions), mushrooms and meat (bacon, sausage crumbled... or not!) and you have my favorite breakfast medley. Sweet and savory and YUMMY.

Personally, I'd turned them either into a black bean and sweet potato bisque or fluffy mashed sweet potatoes.

 

For the bisque, you'd scoop the sweet potatoes out of their skins into a saucepan, add a little milk (and ginger, cinnamon, tumeric, and cumin if you like those flavors), and heat gently until hot. Then blend until smooth. In the meantime, saute diced onions, garlic, and black beans, add to the blended bisque, and salt and pepper to flavor, and enjoy.

 

For the fluffy mashed potatoes, you'd add butter and milk just like making regular mashed potatoes, and heat through.

 

Another idea that's more of a casserole (though I've never tried it) is to make a shepherd's pie but replace the mashed potato topping with a mashed sweet potato topping.

Sweet Potato Burritos  They really are addictive.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes ..scoop out the cooked inside, mix with cream cheese and a little brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg - return to shell - warm in oven for 10 - 15 min.
