Tuscan Sausage and Potato Soup

1 lb. hot Italian sausage, casing removed
6 cups chicken bone stock (get the recipe here)
6 russet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
8 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
½ large onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
4 cups chopped kale
1 16-ounce can of Great Northern Beans, Cannellini beans or another white bean
1 cup heavy cream

1. Warm a Dutch oven or 6-quart pot over medium-high heat.

2. Add Italian sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up the sausage as desired until sausage is browned and cooked through. Remove sausage from pan to a separate plate.

3. Add bacon to the pot and cook until crispy.

4. Stir in the chopped onion. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until onion is translucent.

5. Stir in minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently.

6. Add the chicken stock, potatoes, salt, and red pepper flakes.

7. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

8. Use a slotted spoon to remove 1 cup of potatoes from the pot and place them in a bowl. Mash the potatoes and pour them back into the pot to help thicken the soup.

9. Add the kale and cream; stir to combine.

10. Continue cooking the soup until the kale is wilted and tender, about 3 minutes more.
11. Add additional salt and red pepper flakes to taste.

Jesus Christ has been my Savior since 1975. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 48 of those years. We have five grown children, with children of their own. Of course, that means that we have grandchildren - ten to be exact, and nine great-grandchildren with another one on the way. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
