Italian Sausage Kale Soup

Let's Make...

Sausage kale soup is brimming with flavor from red potatoes, Italian sausage, and a creamy broth that is hearty and warms the soul.


Other great add-ins: Cannellini Beans Fennel seeds Bacon Celery, fine diced Minced garlic Red Pepper Flakes

Hot or Mild is fine but get good quality as this provides the herby flavor to the soup. I usually get the links it is easier to find, but ground Italian Sausage is fine.

What Kind of Italian Sausage?


In a soup pot or large Dutch oven on a stovetop, boil the sliced potatoes about 5-10 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside in a colander or bowl.

Boil Potatoes



Crumble the Italian sausage and add the onions. Cook until sausage is fully cooked, and onions are translucent. Drain off excess fat.

Cook the Sausage


Stir in the chicken broth and oregano. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the milk and bring back to temp if necessary.

Add Liquids


Add the potatoes, heavy cream and kale. Cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until the kale has wilted.

Add the Veggies


Salt and Pepper to taste, Adjust seasonings and heavy cream if desired, Serve hot.
