A farmer's version of a kale dish with smoked sausage. True comfort food!

Top Review by Vicki G.

This recipe is one of my favorite winter recipes... it's so easy to make and so Dutch. When preparing this I never add the onions but I'm sure these make it even tastier. I just love this method of preparing everything in one pot !
