We have had Thanksgiving Dinner at our house for as long as I can remember. The feedback from family and friends has made this an absolute "Must Make" first course every year.

You can easily cut the recipe in half if you don't have that many mouths to feed.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Rub cut surfaces of garlic with olive oil. Put halves back together to reassemble heads. Wrap each tightly in foil; bake until tender, about 40 minutes. Cool garlic in foil.
  2. Slice squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Place in roasting pan, cut side up. Fill with slices of butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Add onions, carrots and broth to pan. Cover and bake at 350 F for 2 hours.
  3. Let cool.
  4. Scoop out the flesh of the squash and combine with onions, carrots and juice from pan into a large stock pot. Add the 8 cups of chicken broth, mace, ginger, cayenne, salt and pepper. Bring to boil, simmer for 10 minutes. While soup is simmering, unwrap garlic. Squeeze from skin into a small bowl. Mash with fork until smooth. Stir garlic into simmering soup.
  5. When simmering is complete, puree soup in food processor in batches.
  6. (At this point, you can store in refrigerator 1 day ahead)
  7. Return bisque to stock pot and bring to a simmer. Stir in cream. Adjust with salt and/or pepper to taste. Transfer to individual shallow bowls or a tureen. Drizzle with a small amount of cream and sprinkle with a little fresh sage.
