    My dad's recipe and a family favorite. You can leave out the meat for a vegetarian option. Great winter soup for cold days!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 medium onions, chopped
    • 1/2-1 lb smoked ham or 1/2-1 lb bacon, chopped
    • 1 buttercup squash or 1 acorn squash or 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
    • 3 -4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
    • 3 -4 cups chicken stock or 3 -4 cups vegetable stock
    • 2 cups milk
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (optional)
    • salt and pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Hint: to make it easier to peel squash, cut in half, scoop out seeds, and microwave for 5 minutes. Let it cool and then peel and chop squash.
    2. 2
      Saute the onions and ham in a couple tablespoons of oil or butter in a very large pot (If you are using bacon you do not need the oil or butter).
    3. 3
      When the onions are starting to get crispy, deglaze the pot with the stock, add the squash and potatoes, and pour in enough water to liberally cover the vegetables.
    4. 4
      When the vegetables are very soft, mash them up a bit with a potato masher, then add the milk, salt and pepper, and brown suger if desired.
    5. 5
      Heat through and enjoy!
