ISO Cooked ground beef ideas

Got about a pound of already cooked ground beef, the other pound was used in a tomato sauce and pasta casserole. Ideas? I'd also like to make something with sweet potatoes as a side, so something that might go with that.

Saute some chopped vidalia onions in some butter until translucent, add the cooked hamburger, stir in some flour, salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes to cook out the raw flour taste, slowly add some milk to make a gravy. Serve over toast or biscuits. Great for anytime of the day!

Why not make it into a cottage pie, using a sweet potato mash on top.

Add onions, garlic, and taco seasoning for tacos, taco salad, enchilada filling, or Mexican lasagna.
