Bacon and Sweet Potato Soup

Comfort food to me is soup or bacon so when the two are paired, it’s a beautiful thing. This is perfect for cool evenings in front of a fire. It’s thick enough and filling enough to serve as a meal. And it’s very easy to make.


  • 4 slices thick cut bacon cooked until crispy
  • 2 sweet potato roasted until soft or 1 med sized squash
  • sprinkle of nutmeg, brown sugar, smoked paprika and salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


Combine all ingredients except 1 slice of bacon for garnish in a food processor. Puree until a thick but smooth soup is created. If soup is too thick add an extra splash of milk or cream. Top with remaining bacon and enjoy.
