We love soup in our home, and I especially am a fan of creamy-style soups. This Thanksgiving-inspired dish has all the traditional smells that fill the air during the holiday season. You could also make this with butternut squash if desired. —Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cool slightly. In a blender, process soup in batches until smooth. Return all to pan and heat through.
For sweet cream, combine ingredients until smooth. For croutons, place bread in a small bowl; drizzle with oil and butter. Sprinkle with sage and toss to coat. Transfer to a small skillet; cook and stir over medium heat for 4-6 minutes or until lightly toasted.
