Sweet Potato Bacon Soup

I've made this soup a few times now. It is easy and so good. It's a lot like potato soup but with a twist... sweet potatoes or yams. I've done it with both. And it is good no matter what. In the pic below I did add few red pepper pieces when I cooked the onion.  I had some to use up in the fridge.  The soup is versatile. 

Sweet Potato Bacon Soup

4#'s sweet potatoes, peeled, and cubed
1# bacon
1 onion, chopped
1 cup whole cream (approx.. could have been a bit more as I just dumped it in)
1t granulated garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

Put the sweet potatoes in a soup pot, cover with water, let cook until they are soft. While that is cooking.. cut up the bacon and onion and fry them until the bacon is crisp.

When the sweet potatoes are done cooking, pour off the almost all of the water (save it!). Add the bacon and onions, the cream and garlic.

Add enough of the reserved cooking water to make it a nice soup consistency. It does thicken up by the next day. You could either add more cooking water (if you save it) or a little more cream.

Add salt and pepper to taste..

Very easy!! And good!! :D



  1. This looks a fabulous recipe - going to try this real soon as the weather here in Australia is starting to cool down

  2. This looks very good as we love sweet potatoes. I want to make it soon but I'm confused about the 1 cup listed after the onion. Does that mean about 1 cup of onion?

    1. Oh.. sorry!! Thank you bringing this to my attention.. I fixed the recipe.. it is 1 cup whole cream. Crystal :)
