Sausage, Potato and Kale Soup

Ingredients

1 pound bulk Italian sausage

4 cups half-and-half

3 cups cubed potatoes

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

2 cups whole milk

1 onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups torn kale leaves (bite-size pieces)

Directions

Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage into pot; cook and stir until browned, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard grease.

Stir half-and-half, potatoes, chicken broth, milk, onion, oregano, and red pepper flakes into sausage, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Season with black pepper; stir kale into soup. Simmer until kale is tender, 10 to 15 more minutes.
