Sausage and Kale Soup Recipe
Sausage and Kale Soup is my favorite fall soup recipe. A creamy broth is accented with red potatoes and Italian sausage to make a soup that is hearty and warms the soul.

Salt and Pepper to Taste
1. In a large pot, boil the sliced potatoes until tender, about 5-10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2. In a large pot, crumble the Italian sausage. Begin to brown 1-2 minutes and then add the onions. Cook until sausage is fully cooked and onions are translucent. Drain off excess fat.
3. Stir in the chicken broth, milk, and fennel (optional), and oregano. Bring to a simmer, cover, and turn to low. Simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Add the potatoes, heavy cream, and kale. After returning to a simmer, cook 10 minutes or until the kale has wilted.
