Ingredients
  • 12 red potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 pounds bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Splash of heavy cream
  • 2 bunches kale, picked over, cleaned and torn into bite-size pieces
Directions
  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil until they're just starting to soften, then drain and set aside.

  • In a large pot, crumble and brown the Italian sausage with the onions over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Drain as much of the fat as you can (blotting the surface with paper towels helps). Add the chicken broth, milk, half-and-half, oregano and red pepper flakes to the pot with the sausage and onions, bring to a simmer and simmer for 30 minutes. Give it a taste and adjust the seasoning as needed with salt, pepper and more red pepper flakes if needed.

  • Add the potatoes and a splash of heavy cream for richness, then stir in the kale. Cover and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, then serve.
