Another snow day in the Midwest. After the winter we've had you're probably saying "What's new?" Nothing really. But this snowy day was the perfect day to rediscover an old favorite. My mom used to fix this for us all the time so when I saw the recipe for Kielbasa and Potatoes over at Life's Ambrosia, I knew it was time to introduce it to my kids. This combination of flavorful sausage and crispy potatoes was the perfect dinner after a day spent playing in the snow.
Kielbasa and Potatoes
Recipe courtesy of Life's Ambrosia
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3 medium Yukon gold potatoes, diced
fresh cracked pepper and kosher salt
1/2 medium onion chopped
1 pound turkey kielbasa, cut in half at the curve and then sliced
In a large skillet heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Once butter has melted add potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes without stirring. Stir after 5 minutes. Cook another 5 minutes. Stir.
Stir in onions. Cook 3 minutes. Stir in kielbasa. Continue cooking for 5 more minutes or until sausage is warmed through and pieces begin to brown.
Note: If you use beef kielbasa cut the amount of butter and oil slightly or the dish may turn out a little greasy.
