  • Cover the bottom of a large pot with ½ inch of water. Insert steamer and add chopped sweet potatoes. Cook sweet potatoes until softened; about 7-10 minutes.
  • Cook bacon in the pot until crispy, about 8 minutes. Transfer bacon onto a plate, allow to cool, and chop into small pieces.
  • Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings from the pot. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the remaining bacon drippings. Sauté onions over medium heat until soft and tender, about 7 minutes.
  • Add cooked sweet potatoes, rosemary, and but 2 tablespoons of bacon to the sautéed onions. Pour beef broth into the skillet and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Use a hand blender and purée ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pour soup into a bowl. Drizzle with sour cream and remaining bacon bits.


I used roughly ½ teaspoon of salt ¼ teaspoon of pepper to season the soup. The amounts of salt and pepper you'll need depends on the type of broth and bacon you use as well as your own preference.
