  • 1 Dutch oven
  • 1 Immersion blender


  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 14.5 oz cans chicken broth
  • 2 cups sliced, peeled potatoes about 2 medium russet potatoes or 1 large russet potato
  • 15 oz canned pumpkin
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 bacon strips cooked and crumbled


  • In a dutch oven over medium-high heat, sauté onion in butter until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the broth, potatoes, and pumpkin. Cover and cook over medium heat until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon strips and set aside.
  • Turn off heat. Using an immersion blender, puree until smooth. Be very careful not to cause splattering during blending as the mixture is very hot. *If you do not have an immersion blender, see notes below.
  • Turn on heat to medium, then add the milk, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Stir well and heat through about an additional 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sour cream and parsley in a bowl. Spoon soup into bowls; top each with a dollop of the sour cream mixture and sprinkle with bacon.


*Remove from the heat and cool. Puree half of the mixture at a time in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return soup mixture to the dutch oven and follow steps 4 – 5.
Chop your onions in slightly large, rough cubes.
The spice, salt and pepper measurements can be adjusted to your liking.
