It’s hard to resist the crisp-smooth play or the salty vs. sweet game on a plate or in a bowl. This is what we’ve got here, where an ultra-smooth and sweet butternut squash blend, mixed with heavy cream, play so well together with the crispy, salty fried bacon. We feel that it’s quite irresistible.

  1. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a cooking pot over low heat, then cook the onion until tender.
