Weeknight dinners can be a challenge, especially if you’re short on time. Finding a quick and hearty, warm meal to enjoy isn’t always easy, especially if you’re trying to avoid frozen dinners. This kielbasa recipe, however, is one of our go-to meals when we’re short on time but desperate for a satisfying dinner.
Kielbasa, smoked Polish sausage, is a flavorful and quick way to get some hearty protein into your dinner. Kielbasa is actually a staple food in Polish cuisine and is a very traditional food to find at Polish weddings.
When kielbasa is combined with potatoes, you’ve got a filling, one-pan dinner that you can whip up in no time. If you’re trying to eat clean and lean, you can use a turkey variety of sausage instead of the traditional pork or beef. You could also use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes.
If you’re following this kielbasa recipe, however, you’ll simply need some classic kielbasa sausage, potatoes, onion, a couple of standard pantry spices, and some salt; that’s it!
If you have extra ingredients you want to add in, such as broccoli or carrots, feel free but it’s not necessary. The entire dish takes about 20 minutes to cook. If you cut your potatoes on the smaller side, they’ll cook even faster.
