  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons bourbon optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon Marjoram
  • 2 cup roast pumpkin or 15 oz can of pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco more or less to taste
  • 1 14.5 oz can Chicken broth
  • 1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 4 strips cooked bacon chopped or crumbled

  • Melt butter over medium heat in a dutch oven or large saucepan.   Add onions and saute until soft and translucent, then add garlic and saute for 1 additional minute.
  • Add bourbon and bring to a boil and saute for a couple of minutes for the alcohol to cook off and leave the flavor.   But be careful when cooking with alcohol, it will flame if in contact with an open flame.
  • Add your roast pumpkin (or canned pumpkin), chicken broth, and marjoram to the sauteed onion mixture. 
  • Add 1/2 tsp of Tabasco to this roast pumpkin soup but you could add more or less depending on your spiciness level.  Then bring to a boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes
  • Using an immersible blender, puree soup until smooth or place in a blender in batches and puree until smooth
  • Add whipping cream to soup in the dutch oven and return to a low simmer
  • Add a dash of salt and pepper to the soup, adjust for taste then simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Serve with a garnish of sliced green onion and crumbled bacon and Tabasco on the side
