Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Time to Table: 50 Minutes

Serves: 8 (1 cup per serving)


  • 3 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 strips of bacon, diced
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup Daisy Light Sour Cream


Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Spread the squash in a nonstick 15x10x1-inch pan; drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle the squash with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, stirring frequently. Add the onion, celery, garlic and pepper to the bacon. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add the broth, cooked squash and all of the remaining ingredients except for the sour cream. Cook until thoroughly heated. Blend with an immersion blender, or place half of the mixture in a regular blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour the soup into a large bowl. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Return the soup to the Dutch oven and whisk in 1/2 cup of the sour cream. Heat the soup over low heat until the desired temperature is reached. Garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream.

Made this today while school was closed for the big snow in Atlanta. It is delicious. I doubled the recipe. It is worth it because it is time-consuming to peel and cube the squash, onions, celery, garlic, etc. I would say and hour of prep time.

This recipe tops all the other internet recipes I've tried.I left the bacon out and added a bay leaf and pinch of nutmeg.
