Need ideas for canned sweet potatoes

Daughter hates them and HH is not a huge fan. What can I make that will wow them? Marshmallows are not an option.

I dislike them intensely if they're sweetened & frou-froued up.

How about just mashing them plain & serving them topped with lots of butter?

It's actually been a long time since I've had canned sweet potatoes. I like mine with a bit of sugar and butter. If they are overly sweet I really have to load them with butter.

maybe you could use them as a filling for homemade ravioli? What about sweet potato gnochi with butter or a creamy cheese sauce. Kids love anything covered in cheese and most gnochi recipes are easier than you'd think.

Toss with honey, toasted pecans, sliced bananas and butter. Add a little rum if you want.

these all sound yummy!

"I'm sorry your Honor, I had to feed my kid some booze so she would eat her vegetables."

The empanadas/ravioli ideas are intriguing - I haven't made anything like that before and would like to try it out, so bring on the recipes, pls

How about sweet potato pie?
