I like to stock up these Kroger brand Brats, Ground Sausage and Meatballs when we see a $2.97 sale like this. Download your 5x digital coupon and head to Kroger by 11/16 to use.  Then when you get home make some Zuppa Toscana (recipe below) with your hot Italian sausage. YUM!!

Zuppa Toscana Recipe


  • 1 lb hot Italian sausage
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 large white potatoes, diced, skin on
  • 1 bunch curly kale, strip leaves from stem and chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  • In a large pot add hot Italian sausage, breaking it up with your spatula and sauté until cooked through (roughly 5 min). Remove to paper towel lined plate.
  • Next, finely dice large onion and add to the pot. Saute 5 min or until soft and golden then add minced garlic and sauté for 1 min.
  • Add 6 cups of chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Chop 4 large white potatoes with skin on and add to boiling soup.  Cook for 10-12 min or until the potatoes pierce easily with a fork.
  • When potatoes nearly done, add chopped kale and let all ingredients come to light boil
  • Stir in 3/4-1 cup cup cream and bring to boil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper then remove from heat.
  • Garnish with bacon and grated parmesan (if desired)
