"Delicious! I'll definitely make this again."
"Everyone loved it!"
"I made it with parsley because I did not have kale leaves. Came out very tasty thank you."
"Awesome recipe!! I didnt have parsley leaves so thats the only thing I didnt do. Followed the recipe to a T and it was perfect. Thank you!"
"I love, love, love this recipe. It goes together quickly and easily and is absolutely delicious! I have used Hickory Farms light kielbasa as well as Hickory Farms turkey smoked sausage. I usually keep the skin on the potatoes, I have also used red potatoes for this recipe. I always use kale and have used 2% milk instead of the heavy cream to keep it on the light side. Heated up the next day it is even better!"
