  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped or minced
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 1.5 lbs baby Dutch yellow potatoes
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh chopped kale
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 8 pieces of crispy bacon (I used thick cut)


  1. Over medium high heat, cook the sausage in a dutch oven or large stockpot, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned.  Remove sausage with a slotted spoon, leaving sausage grease in pot.

  2. Add in the white onions and saute for about 5 minutes on medium high, until softened.  Add in chopped garlic and saute for 1 minute, until fragrant.

  3. Add potatoes, chicken stock, water, cooked sausage, and continue cooking on medium high, until mixture has reached a low simmer, or until dutch potatoes are tender.

  4. Add in kale and cream and simmer for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle salt and pepper in soup and stir.  Add in chopped freshly cooked bacon and stir.  Serve and Enjoy!!
