Here are the steps to making this delicious soup:
- 4 slices of bacon - cooked and diced up (I just do this in the microwave)
- 1 lb. Italian Sausage (for a bit more spice) OR 1 lb ground pork (super cheap and yummy)
- I actually used 2 pounds tonight for dinner and liked it with a little more meat.
- 1 diced onion
- 3-4 cloves garlic
- 4 Cups chicken stock
- 3 Cups potatoes
- 2 cups Kale
- 1 Cup Cream
- Grated Parmesan
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Get your meat cooking in a dutch oven or big pot. While it is cooking make your bacon, and chop up the onion, garlic cloves and bacon. If you don't have this slap-chop from Pampered Chef it is amazing and makes chopping onions tear free!
Then dice up your potatoes. I use the baby blonde potatoes but you can also use regular if you'd like.
Anyways, cook up your meat and get that all browned and ready to go.
If you aren't familiar with kale, you need to pull the leaves off the thick steam. I just pull them by pinching them the stem and then ripping them into smaller pieces.
Let it cook for a few more minutes to let the kale cook down.
And that's it! One pan dish that healthy and delicious.
