Heat oil in a skillet; saute the sausage just until the fat is rendered,

Bring broth to a boil with the onions and potatoes; simmer 10 to 15 minutes
until potatoes are very tender. Mash onions and potatoes in the broth with
a potato masher or slotted spoon. Add drained sausage slices and the kale.

Taste for seasoning - depending on how spicy your sausage is, add salt and
pepper to taste. Serve piping hot.

beer or red wine for a complete meal."
