Ideas for a Sweet potato dish, sans marshmallows for Turkey day?

Not against it, I just prefer mine savory over sweet. I seem to be in minority though, because I can't find any recipes that do not call for marshmallows, brown sugar or maple. I wan to do something different other then just roasted with salt pepper and butter like I would do for an everyday day dinner.
