I was a preschool teacher in my other life (and loved it)! This recipe was given to me by a parent during teacher appreciation week. It is easy enough that even I can make it and it has become a favorite in my home. I hope your family will enjoy this savory soup as much as my family does!
3/4 cup diced onions
1 slice cooked bacon, diced
1 1/4 tsp. garlic cloves, minced
32 oz. chicken broth
2 medium potatoes, cut however you like them. (I dice mine)
1 1/2 cups sausage, pre-cooked (I use Italian turkey sausage)
2 cups kale, chopped
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Cook sausage on stove top. Meanwhile, place onion and bacon in 3-4 qt. saucepan. Cook over medium heat until onions are clear. Add garlic, cook 1 min. Add broth, potatoes and drained sausage. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked through, about 15-20 min. Add kale and whipping cream. Simmer another 10 min. or until kale is softened.
