Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 4 hours on high, 6 hours on low
Total: 4 hours 15 minutes on high, 6 hours 15 minutes on low



  • 1 lb Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 medium russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. In a large skillet, cook the Italian sausage over medium heat until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease.

  2. In the same skillet, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  3. In a slow cooker, add the cooked sausage, bacon, onion, garlic, chicken broth, water, diced potatoes, oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.

  4. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours, until the potatoes are tender.

  5. Stir in the chopped kale and heavy cream. Cover and cook for an additional 30 minutes on high or 1 hour on low, until the kale is wilted.

  6. Serve hot, garnished with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
