Instructions

Prep
1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then thinly slice onions. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Strip 1/2 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from the stems. Peel, core, then cut half the apple into 1/4 -inch slices. Cut remaining apple into 1/2-inch pieces.

Cook bacon
2

Halve bacon crosswise. Arrange bacon in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 8-10 min.** Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.

Start soup
3

While bacon bakes, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) then sweet potatoes, diced apple and half the onion. Cook, stirring often, until the veggies soften slightly, 2-3 min. Add broth concentrate, garlic, thyme and 2 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered until sweet potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.

Cook apple filling
4

While soup cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining apples slices and remaining onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions and apples are golden-brown, 6-8 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake melts
5

Halve buns, then arrange on another baking sheet, cut-side up. Brush each half with fig jam, then top with cheese. Toast buns in the middle of the oven, until cheese is golden, 3-4 min (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Top bottom buns with apple filling and bacon, then top buns.

Finish soup and serve
6

Add cream to the large pot with sweet potato soup. Remove the pot from heat. Using a potato masher, carefully mash sweet potato soup until it reaches desired creaminess. (NOTE: If you have a hand blender, blend soup for 1 min until creamy).Season with salt and pepper. Divide soup between bowls. Halve bacon apple melts and serve alongside for dipping. Sprinkle pepitas over soup.
