I was really looking forward to this soup — I’ve had it starred in my Google Reader for a long time! This soup was delicious, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that it got better with each bite. The only real negative to this recipe is that it does not use staples that I normally have in my pantry. However, the flavor of this soup is well worth it, and I’ll definitely make it again.
In a medium skillet, crumble and brown sausage. Drain well, and add to your crockpot. Add the broth, water, onion, potatoes, and garlic, stirring to combine. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
At end of cook time, stir in whipping cream and as many bacon bits as you want. Chop desired amount of kale and stir to combine. Serve with crusty French bread and enjoy!
