3-4 cloves garlic, minced

Chop bacon and brown in a pan.
When bacon is crispy, add sausage and brown.
Add onion, garlic and red pepper flakes.
Add broth and diced potatoes to a large pot and boil for 5 mins.
Add sausage mixture to pot and boil 5 more minutes.
Wash kale and pull leaves off of stem.
Discard stem and chop leaves.

Cook until potatoes are tender.
