    1. 1
      Heat the oven to 180°C Cut the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, rub with the olive oil and bake, cut side down for 1 hour until tender. Allow to cool, then scoop the flesh out of the skins and discard the skins.
    2. 2
      Arrange the bacon on a foil-covered baking tray and grill or fry in a non-stick frying pan until super crisp. Remove and drain on kitchen paper, then crumble into small pieces. Cook the onions in the bacon fat or in 1 tbs olive oil over a moderate heat for 5 minutes until they start to soften.
    3. 3
      Add the sweet potato flesh, bay leaves, chicken stock, nutmeg, salt and pepper and bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If it’s too lumpy for your taste, whip out the bay leaves and whiz the whole lot in the food processor, otherwise leave it alone. Serve in warmed soup bowls, topped with crumbled crisp bacon.

      This was absolutely fantastic. I've made it both with and without the bacon, but it really does something for the presentation to see the crumbled bacon on top. The taste is delicious. Don't be shocked if everyone eats more than one bowl. :)

      Potatoes are revered in Iceland & both types very popular, so I served this lovely warming soup as a starter course for our X-Mas Eve dinner & had white potatoes as part of the main meal. I made it the day b4, whizzed it lightly w/my immersion blender & it rewarmed well ~ very easy to make. I esp like the use of chicken stock vs cream & cheese which lightens it, the bacon flavour & texture it added + the inspired hint of nutmeg & I will use more nutmeg next time. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us.
