Recipe for Pirate's Voyage / Dixie Stampede's Creamy Vegetable Soup

Want some more?

Anyone who has ever been to Dolly Parton's Pirate's Voyage or Dixie Stampede has tasted this delicious creamy vegetable soup served as the appetizer with a cheese biscuit. I absolutely loved it and had to have more. I did not, however, wish to pay the expensive admission fee to get it. While the shows were wonderful and entertaining, I just wanted the soup. You too, you say? Here is the easy to follow recipe.


  • 3 tbsp margerine or butter
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 pint half n half or heavy cream

Thank you for reading picklesandrufus. I normally just substitute a tbs of sugar for the corn syrup since I do not generally have that on hand. Still turns out great!

Sounds very good. Would never thought of adding corn syrup, but can totally see how it would work.
