Leftover baked sweet potato

I baked two huge sweet potatoes for sweet potato rolls, but only used one.
Any ideas on something creative to do with 14 oz of very soft, baked sweet potato? (I could make more rolls, but I've been there/done that.)
I'm not wild about mashed or "plain" sweet potatoes, but do I like the flavor when combined in something else (like those rolls).
chop it small and make a scrambled egg hash with it, some eggs, finely choppped turkey, swiss cheese, some onions, and a little curry powder. delicious.
These same ingredients (hardboiled eggs instead of scrambled) are great in a salad with a dressing of lemon, olive oil, curry powder, and a few capers.
Mash it up, add a little flour, egg (perhaps not a whole, one but one mixed up, maybe just a bit), salt & nutmeg. Add any fresh herb - such as sage. Mix into a nice dough, not too sticky, not too dry. Make a few small patties...
Fry in good butter until golden brown on both sides. Serve with maybe some soft fried onions. If you have some of the tart cherries left, add those to the onions (chopped) and let them soften up, too.
those pattys sound good . . .
I'd make chipolte sweet potato mash, or add a reconstituted chipolte pepper to the patty instead of sage . . . or maybe with just a little less sage...hmmm
sweet potato also makes a good curry dish with red lentils - I posted a dal recipe a couple days ago for that
One of my favorite low-cal wintertime lunches is a warm sweet potato with a pinch of nutmeg, 2 scoops of plain yougurt, a few walnuts and a touch of honey.
I made the most outstanding cheesecake for a baby shower last week- from Sunset magazine Nov 05 issue, their Grand Prize Winner, Roasted Sweet Potato Cheesecake- delicious!! You only need 1 pureed cup, with lime and salt.
Sweet potato pie, using your favorite pumpkin pie recipe.
Sweet potato crisp: mash, mix in 1 beaten egg, 1 T sugar, a bit of cinnamon and allspice. Lightly oil a small baking dish, spread the sweet potatoe in it. Make the same topping as you would for apple crisp - brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, nuts and press over the top. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
