1 lb bulk Italian sausage, browned and drained
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup water
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3 large russet potatoes, cubed
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup whipping cream
Place Italian sausage, chicken broth, garlic, potatoes and onion in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours until potatoes are cooked and soft. Add desired amount of bacon bits, whipping cream and cut up kale right before serving. Top with your choice of cheese; serve with fresh bread. Makes 8 servings.
I like to add mushrooms, and mild sausage but if you prefer hot sausage go for it. I also don't like a lot of onions but feel free to add more to spice things up a little. I give this dish 4 stars.
