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 


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
