I also used some Hunter's Bacon that I found at Polska Chatta. I finally found this small Polish deli and cafe. I am not disappointed. Hunter's Bacon is a smoked bacon. It is ready to eat, no frying needed but you certainly can fry it as well.
1½ lbs ground Italian sausage
1 teaspoon crushed red peppers
1 large diced white onion
¼ cup bacon, crumbled
2 cloves garlic minced
10 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 lb diced Russet potatoes, or about 3 large potatoes
4 cup kale, chopped
Sauté Italian sausage and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Drain excess fat, set aside.
In the same pan, sauté bacon, onions and garlic over low-medium heat for approximately 15 mins. or until the onions are soft. Add chicken broth to the pot and heat until it starts to boil. Add the diced potatoes and cook until soft, about half an hour. Add the heavy cream and just cook until thoroughly heated. Do not bring to a boil after you add the cream. Stir in the sausage and the kale, let all heat through and serve. Delicious!
