    Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Cook bacon, stirring often, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Discard all but 1 tbsp of fat in the pan.

    Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add kale and cook, stirring, until wilted and tender, 5 minutes. Add soup and sour cream. Cook until slightly warmed, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

    Mash potatoes until smooth. Add soup mixture, half of the bacon, salt and pepper, stirring just until combined. Transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon.
