Recipe from my friend Sandee

In her original recipe she used 1/3 sweet potatoes, but as they are not currently in season, I changed the recipe to all regular potatoes.  If you find some at the store and you are so inclined, use 1 lb regular and 1/2 lb sweet potatoes.

1 1/2 LB thin skinned Potatoes

2 Onions from the share, bottom portion chopped (chop the tops and save for serving)

1 Bay Leaf 

1 bunch Kale

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp ground Black Pepper

1/2 lb smoked Sausage

1 TB Vegetable or Olive Oil

2 TB Butter

1 TB chopped Parsley

Cut the potatoes in half.  Dice onions.  Clean, trim and chop kale.  Add the potatoes, onion, kale, bay leaf, and salt into a pan. Add just enough water to cover all of the vegetables.  Cover and boil gently for about 25 minutes.  Meanwhile, slice the smoked sausage.  In a frying pan, heat the oil and add the sliced sausage and brown. Remove from heat when done.  Remove the bay leaf from the vegetable pan, then drain the water and mash. Add the sausage and the butter to the mashed vegetables, and mix.  Top with some of the chopped parsley and onion tops. Serve.
