Step 1

Heat a fry pan to medium-high heat. Shape the sausage into small rounds and brown stirring frequently. Then remove to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off some of the grease.

Put everything except for the potatoes together in a large crockpot and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. If you prefer your kale more crisp tender, wait to add the kale with the potatoes.
