We made it! We are halfway through the week, and man it feels good! We have some fun stuff planned for the rest of the week, and then we are off to Seattle! Since I have been busy running around trying to check everything off my list, there couldn’t be a better night for another great crockpot recipe! We are big on soup around this house but this soup is so delicious! Its super easy to prep with minimal ingredients, and makes for the perfect fall dinner.
Starting with the dicing you cut up the potatoes. I don’t peel them, but if you prefer to that would work too! I didn’t have two large baking potatoes, so I used 4 small and made the pieces bite size. Next you chop up the onion. I hate cutting onions. Does anyone else feel like its maybe in the top 5 worst things in the world??? No, just me? My face was dripping with tears, but the onion got diced.
Next you brown the sausage. I cut it up before I cook it. Lengthwise first then in half and then in to inch size pieces. I try and always make my ingredients all the same size so when I take a bite all the flavors are evenly dispersed! There’s my pro cook tip of the day… Just kidding, I am totally not a cook! The hard part is over. Now you put everything in the crockpot.
Add the potatoes, onions, sausage, chicken broth, water, and heavy cream. Top with salt and pepper and set it to High for 3-4 hours, or until the potatoes are tender. I told you that was easy. After 3-4 hours add the kale and turn the crockpot off. cover the crockpot and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
Serve the soup topped with real bacon bits! Enjoy! The perfect fall soup easy enough for any day of the week!
