  • Heat butter in a large pan over medium heat.

  • Chop the remaining bacon and fry until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes.

  • Remove pan from heat and set aside.

  • Heat a large pot over medium heat, add butternut mixture and thyme, and cook for 1-2 minutes, stir in chicken stock and adjust seasoning if needed.

  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5-10 minutes.

  • If the soup is too thick, add more chicken stock until desired consistency is reached.

  • Remove pot from heat and allow soup to cool. Transfer butternut soup to a food processor and blend, in batches, until smooth and creamy.
