This is a spicy and hearty soup. Couple bowls of this with crusty bread and you're ready for a nap.

8 cups chicken stock
2 pounds hot ground sausage
8 oz thick bacon diced, cooked. And drained on paper towel.
1 med. yellow onion diced
4 cloves minced garlic
1 bunch kale with thick stems removed
2 cups heavy cream
6 russet potatoes diced in 1/2" cubes.
3/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
Pepper to taste.

Sausage browning.

Didn't take the rest of the build shots.
After browning the sausage. Remove and drain. Remove most of the bacon and sausage grease from pan. Leave a couple of tbs in pot.
Add onion and garlic. Cook until tender.
Add the chicken stock and potatoes. Cook on medium high until potatoes are tender.
Put the meats back in, return to simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
Add cheese and heavy cream.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Add Kale, let simmer for a few minutes until Kale has cooked down.

Soup looks great Steve! I need to make this. I absolutely love kale in soups.

They always seem to reduce that Wegman's hot sausage for quick sale. When they do I buy a few for the freezer. I like using them for sausage biscuits and gravy.

Like it!
