Embrace all things Fall and Winter with this hearty, easy, healthy, and flavorful soup using Butternut Squash!
I was fortunate enough to be given several butternut squash this winter, and I totally did a little happy dance because I love butternut squash soup. My hubby used to work at this restaurant that made the BEST soup ever, and I would always ask him to bring it home to me. But now he doesn’t work there and we moved away, so I had to learn to make it myself. And want to know something? It was so much easier than I ever imagined it would be.
The apple in this soup helps bring a new dimension of flavor, and the combination of spices compliments the squash beautifully.
And bacon…let’s talk about how awesome bacon and apples are together? I mean is there a more heavenly combination? Okay, now I am trying to come up with better combinations and all I can think of is an apple wrapped in candied bacon and dipped in chocolate, then sprinkled with sea salt, and maybe drizzled with marshmallow sauce or something…total imagination run away! Haha but really, add the bacon to this soup and you won’t even miss the chocolate and marshmallow I just described. Haha, man can you tell my mind is all over the place today.
The point is, this soup rocks, and the bacon helps!
