Adapted just a bit from Mom on Time Out
1 lb Italian Sausage (spicy if you prefer more heat)
5-7 slices of bacon
5 medium russet potatoes
2 cups kale, chopped
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
8 cups chicken broth
1/2 large onion
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
Serve with some grated Parmesan cheese.
*This last time I doubled the recipe to take to a potluck. After the potatoes were cooked I put it in a crockpot and then added the rest of the ingredients. The next morning I cooked it on low for 3-4 hours. I checked on it a few times and it must have been good because I did not bring any home.
I hear that it freezes well.
