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!

I made this amazing soup last week during the snow days & made Ree’s olive foccacia to go with it. What a combo! Even though I didn’t have any cream, I added the same amount of skim milk, which was all I DID

I made this soup last weekend not sure what to expect. I had never had a soup quite like this before. I have to say it is now one of my favorites! I followed the recipe exactly and didn’t change a thing, it was wonderful! 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!!!!! :)

I love this soup. This is now a staple in our weekly meals. Thank you so much. By the way, we’ve played with this by adding some chicken, and it was wonderful.
