I am so nervous and intimidated to post my first recipe. :) This stuff is the REAL DEAL. I thought I was at Olive Garden for a second while I was eating it. Yummy.

1/2 lb smoked bacon, chopped
1 qt. water
2 - 14.5 oz cans chicken broth
2 large russet potatoes, thin sliced
1 large garlic clove crushed
1 medium onion chopped
2 cups kale, chopped
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Salt & pepper to taste
Grated Parmesan
In skillet over medium heat, brown sausage, breaking into small pieces as you fry it. Drain and set aside. In skillet over med/high heat, brown bacon. Drain and set aside. Place water, broth, potatoes, garlic and onion in pot. simmer over medium heat until potatoes are tender. Add sausage and bacon, simmer for 10 minutes. Add kale and cream to pot, season with salt & pepper. Add Parmesan cheese. ENJOY!
