Invented Recipe: Potato & Pumpkin Soup

Here’s something Coral & I made up, with help on the spices from Emeril. Measurements (or lack thereof) are my doing.

  • Some potatoes (about 5) skinned, cubed
  • Same volume as potatoes: pumpkin, cubed
  • Milk, about half the volume of potatoes
  • 1/8 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 pieces bacon
  • Sage (quite a bit)
  • Brown sugar (more than you’d think)
  • Parsley (quite a bit, it’s pretty but doesn’t taste like much)

Boil the potatoes + pumpkin + chopped onion in enough water to substantially cover.

Cook the bacon crispy, save the bacon grease.

Once potatoes + pumpkin + onion are mashable, drain about half the water out. Mash well.

Add: milk, sage, brown sugar, parsley, and bacon grease. Cook for a while, don’t burn the milk.

Crumble the bacon with some brown sugar for the top.
