Recipe by Captains Lady

I tried a few different recipes but finally tweaked one into what I think is perfection! It's also lower fat than most of the others!

This is yummy and easy-to-make soup! I used regular precooked bacon, otherwise made as directed. This soup is really good for as low fat as it is. We served this with some garlic bread and really enjoyed - thanks for posting your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut potatoes into quarters, then slice each piece into quarter inch pieces.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients into a large pot and simmer over medium heat until potatoes begin to break up (15-20 minutes).
  3. While other ingredients simmer, cook sausage in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crumbled. Remove from pan and place on a plate that has been covered in 3-4 papertowels (to further drain the fat).
  4. In the same skillet, saute bacon until crisp.
  5. When potatoes are done, add sausage and bacon to the pot. Simmer 10 more minutes.
  6. Add kale and evaporated milk. Simmer for 5-10 more minutes and then enjoy!
