  • 2 cans Chicken Broth
  • 1 qt. Water
  • 1 C. Heavy Whipping Cream


Cook sausage in a 300-degree oven. Bake approximately 1/2 hour, drain on paper towels and cut into slices. (Or brown in a skillet-drain)

Place onions, potatoes, chicken broth, water, garlic in pot, and cook on medium heat until potatoes are done. Add sausage, bacon, salt, and pepper to taste, and simmer for another 10 minutes. Turn to low heat, add kale and cream. Heat through and serve.
