Description

This delicious soup tastes even better than Olive Garden’s. Spicy, smooth and incredibly flavorful, this soup is a huge hit with my family! Perfect for cool nights.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Spicy Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 whole Medium Red Onion, Diced
  • 2 slices Bacon, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 3 whole Medium Potatoes
  • 1 quart Warm Water
  • 3 cubes Chicken Bouillon
  • ¼ bunches Kale, Roughly Chopped
  • ½ cups Heavy Cream
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Crumble sausage into a Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat until cooked through. Drain off the grease and set the sausage aside.

Add onions and bacon into the Dutch oven. Reduce heat to medium and cook until onions are clear. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and cut into 1/4″ slices. Add warm water, bouillon cubes and potatoes to the Dutch oven and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are almost done.

Add remaining ingredients as well as the sausage and simmer for 5 more minutes. Let cool and serve with warm garlic breadsticks.

Enjoy!

This soup IS definitely better than Olive Garden’s! My family and friends love it! I have been giving this soup as a gift at Christmas time for the last 2 years and it’s a big hit. They give me the soup jar back so I’ll fill it again next year. My husband and I are soup lovers and this is our most favorite soup of all time. I always make a double batch of it and keep it in the freezer year round and just pull it out of the freezer whenever we have the hankering for it. Add some oyster crackers and you’ve got yourself a superb meal! Thanks for the recipe!

This was AMAZING! I used mild Italian Sausage because we don’t do ‘spicy’. This looked like it’d make a good Crock-Pot recipe. The recipe also looked to large for just the 2 of us – so I made half right into my slow cooker less the cream, and labeled & filled a freezer gallon bag less the potato & cream. My slow cooker has a timer for 8 hours on low before it clicks to warm – so I set before work and the house smelled mouth watering walking in the door!!! Added the cream – stirred, and we dug in! YUM! Thank you! :)

Let me tell you how my whole family nearly passed out after eating this delicious dish! People thought that I went to culinary school and aquired 5 star training…my store was out of spicy sausage so I used mild and added red pepper flakes. I used 1 additional piece of bacon too. Upon taking the first taste I knew it was love at first bite and that this recipe would forever be a permanant fixture in my life. THANK YOU!!!!! :)
