    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups spicy sausage links (I used 6 breakfast sausage links because it was what I had and because my family doesn't like Italia)
    • 6 slices bacon
    • 3/4 cup onion, diced
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • chicken broth (I used 3 small cans, a different recipe used bouillon cubes or crystals and water to make equivalent)
    • 2 medium potatoes, sliced up 1/4 inch and then halve the slices (use more next time for a heartier soup)
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon fennel seed (or to taste, I found this to be the secret to the distinct flavoring of the soup)
    • 2 cups kale leaves, sliced thinly (spinach can be substituted, I only used 2 large pinches of crinkly kale leaves my family isn't big o)
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (try fat free half and half)
    • parmesan cheese (to garnish)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Quarter potatoes with peelings on and then slice quarters into ¼ inch thick pieces.
    2. 2
      Place potatoes in large pot and add 3 cans chicken broth and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, cook sausage links until done. Cool, then cut in slices, then halve the slices.
    4. 4
      Cut bacon in small squares and cook over medium heat until done but not crisp.
    5. 5
      Cook onions in bacon drippings in a large saucepan over medium heat until the onions are almost clear.
    6. 6
      Add garlic to onions and cook one minute.
    7. 7
      Add onions, meats, and fennel seeds to potatoes and broth. Simmer until potatoes are soft.
    8. 8
      Add kale and cream. Simmer to soften greens (approx. 4 minutes) and serve. Garnish with parmesan cheese (optional).
