Kielbasa Skillet Meal

20130621-070801.jpg
This is a standby recipe that I have used for years. Three simple ingredients make for a quick and easy skillet meal.
My mother-in-law used to make a variation of this recipe by using kielbasa, sour kraut, apples, and canned potatoes. The flavors seemed a bit strong for me and I am really not a big fan of sour kraut. When J and I started our own family, I altered the recipe to suit our tastes. I buy kielbasa when it’s on sale and store it in the freezer until ready to use. The sausage is pre-cooked so it cooks up fast.
A helpful tip…when baking potatoes, always bake a few extra to add to skillet meals like this one. Having pre-baked potatoes on hand is a real time saver. This one pot meal makes clean up a snap!

1-2 Hillshire Farms Polska Kielbasa, precooked rope link-style
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 medium potatoes, baked and cubed
Canola oil to coat pan

Preheat a large skillet and add 2 tablespoon of canola oil to the pan. Cut kielbasa into 1/2″ slices; set aside. Add sliced onions to the skillet and sauté until caramelized. Add cubed baked potatoes to the skillet; sauté until golden brown. Mix in the sliced kielbasa and continue cooking until thoroughly cooked through; about 10 minutes.

  1. Great quick and simple meal idea for when you don’t know what to make!! Is there something you recommend replacing the potato with as an alternative? Would pasta be good?

    1. It really is a great one pot meal…I hope your boys love it as much as my kids do. You can substitute turkey sausage for a low-fat version of this recipe.
