Default Zuppa Toscana. It's not BBQ but.......(Pr0n heavy)

It's farkin' delicious!

The wife and I had this soup for the first time about 3 or 4 years ago at Olive Garden. We loved it so much we looked up how to make it. This comes straight from our family recipe book:

Zuppa Toscana


1 to 1.5 lb Italian sausage (we like hot italian sausage)

4 or 5 large russet baking potatoes or about 2.5 pounds, sliced in half, and then in 1/4 inch slices

1 large onion, minced or finely chopped

to package of bacon (though we usually use alsmost a pound). I chop it
finely after its been in the freezer
because it makes it easier.

2 clove garlic, minced

2 to 3 cups of kale (we cut it up finely)

1 48oz can of chicken broth

2 cups heavy whipping cream

2 teaspoons salt or to your taste

1 Teaspoon Italian seasoning

Parmesan cheese grated (sometime we use the Italian cheese mixture
from the any grocery store or cheddar if it's all we have on hand)

Cook sausage in the bottom of large pot, take out and set aside(I do not
drain the sausage).
Fry bacon in the bottom of the pot until its crispy. Drain the grease.
Sautee the onions with the bacon in the pot.
Add chicken broth, potatoes, sausage, Italian seasoning, and garlic
Simmer until potatoes are cooked through
Lower heat and add the whipping cream and kale.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Heat through and serve.

Serve with cheese on top of each bowl

Thank me later!

This stuff is probably my favorite food so I had to share with the brethren. Here's some pics I took while preparing it:

Oh yeah, here's a pic of some leftover wings I smoked last night....just so this is BBQ related

Thanks for looking.
