Get creative with sweet potatoes?

For dinner, I'm making baked chicken legs with collard greens and sweet potatoes, but I don't know how I want to make the sweet potatoes. Mashed or baked seems so... blasé. Any ideas how to get creative with sweet potatoes?

Peel and cut them into cubes. Toss the cubes with some oil, s/p, diced onion, and thyme and rosemary. Roast until tender. This is one of our favorites.

I like them roasted, too. I cut them into cubes and toss with EVOO and kosher salt. I love the salty/sweet combo.

I also make them mashed with a caramel-nut sauce I make with melted butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and chopped pecans. I usually put the sauce in the bottom of ramekins, top with the sweet potatoes and bake for about 10 mins.

Sweet potato latkes? Sweet potato tots?

 I love them roasted. Just cut up, toss in oil, salt & pepper. DH doesn't like them maked, mashed or casserole, but he likes them this way. It's a different flavor.

We had baked turkey legs, collard greens and roasted sweet potatoes tonight. Sounds like we're on a similar wave length!
