Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook the bacon in a heavy pan until crisp.
  • Remove to another dish, leaving the bacon fat in the pan.
  • Add the sausage links, and cook over medium heat until browned well on all sides.
  • Add ½ cup of water, cover, and cook another 10 minutes over medium low heat or until completely cooked.
  • Remove the sausages to a plate, and cook the onions in the same pan until translucent.
  • Add the garlic, and cook another minute or two.
  • In a large soup or stockpot, add the chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to medium low.
  • Cut the sausage links into ½ inch sklices, and then add these to the stockpot.
  • Cook for 10 minutes and then add the kale (greens of your choice) and bacon.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and simmer another 10 minutes.
  • Remove a little of the potato from the pot, and place it in a bowl. Mash the potato together with the cream, and then add this mixture to the pot, mixing well.
  • Serve hot, offering a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

    We loooved this! We also fought over the leftovers :p I used hot italian sausage, new (baby) red & gold potatoes and added a fresh bay leaf and a couple sprigs of rosemary (to the saute stage) because we love herbs. We'll be making this many many times to come! Thanks, and cheers!
