Recipe by Donald
"I tried out for the show 'Master Chef' this past October in New York City. One of my fellow contestants made a pumpkin soup with applewood bacon. He made it to the next round, but sadly I did not. This is my rendition of his soup. I made it my own by using butternut squash and sweet potato and made it richer by turning this into a bisque. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Please share your comments. For less-fat option substitute half-and-half with milk or nonfat half-and-half."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (2 pound)
butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed
sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 quarts
1 1/2 cups
This was "Autumn" in a bowl. The white wine added the unique flavor tying the whole dish together. With that said, I didn't care for the nutmeg in it having tried it both ways. I did add a spiral of sour cream that was wonderful and enhancing. I also toasted the butternut seeds and added a touch of them on top of the bacon.
I made this exactly as the recipe stated and it was the blandest soup I've eaten in a while. If I try it again I will have to do some major tweaks! Sorry!
This recipe is fabulous! We have finally found a great butternut squash recipe. We followed the recipe as written except that we used an immersion blender and added a dash of cinnamon at the end. Unless we missed it the recipe did not mention when to add the garlic, we did after the onion was translucent. 15 minutes of prep is a little misleading; it took my husband and I at least 30 minutes (but we are not master chefs). Thanks for the recipe Donald.
Delicious! I used milk instead of half and half. Other than that I followed the recipe and everyone loved it!
A local restaurant makes a sweet potato soup that I love. I gave this recipe a try and it is as good as, if not better than, the restaurant's version. It is one of the best soups I have ever made - rich, creamy, sweet, and colorful!
This was DELICIOUS. I used maple smoked turkey bacon as that's what I had. It was so yummy. Complex enough for adult palettes but also "yummy for my tummy" as quoted by the picky eater in my house house.
Very savory in a sweet way. I loved it!! Add a little salt at the end to compliment the sweet more. This will be a fall favorite.
