  1. Add bacon to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function. Cook and stir until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  2. Add sausage and onion to the bacon drippings. Cook and stir until no pink remains.
  3. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Drain liquids from the pot.

    Love this kind of soup from Olive Garden so we gave it a try. Turned out even better! We added mushrooms and it added to the goodness.

    Turned out great! Maybe add a little pepper and i used low sodium chicken broth but it was very tasty!

    Followed the recipe and has turned out beautifully twice. We doubled meat, potatoes and kale the second time to feed a larger crowd and it still turned out well. In fact, we boiled more potatoes the next day to go with the rest of the leftover soup. This transformed the dish into a delightful potato soup/chowder consistency… yum. A great cold weather recipe served with breadsticks.

    Yummy! Substituted prosciutto for the bacon. I needed to add a touch of avocado oil to the pan before adding onions abd garlic.

    So good! And happy we could adjust the spice level by using mild instead of hot itilian sauage.

    It is a thing of beauty. Just like olive garden. Ill be making this many more times. I left out the onion because im not a fan. Also left out the bacon, but it was still amazing.

    Great recipe. I added more cream than called for. Heat the broth up while you’re prepping to cut down in cook time. Took more like 40-45 minutes total time for prep, cook, and release.
