Who does not like an easy, flavorful and comforting meal, especially something like this Bacon and Kale Soup?
I make this bacon and kale soup pretty often. Sometimes I add bacon and sausage, and sometimes just sausage
My family loves it at least a couple of times a month and it is enjoyed all year round.
Bacon goes so well with kale. I love adding it to my cabbage soup as well as green bean stew
I trully hope you make this soup and enjoy as much as we do. Thanks so much for all your support.
