Kielbasa and Potatoes Recipe
Here is all you need to make this easy kielbasa recipe. I told you this kielbasa sausage recipe was easy!
While my husband was with us I made this easy kielbasa recipe frequently, it was a kielbasa and potatoes was pretty much his favorite among the kielbasa recipes I would prepare for him. The man loved his smoked sausage. I still make the dish occasionally, but for me, I use the lower fat chicken or turkey kielbasa sausage rather than the pork or beef versions he preferred. I like serving my kiebasa with sauteed broccoli rabe, while his preference was just to dig into a big bowl of the kielbasa and potatoes, sometimes with a splash of hot sauce on top of his dinner.
Pan fry this easy kielbasa skillet dinner yourself and don’t be afraid to toss in a little cabbage, green beans or peppers if you like. Even when you mix it up a bit this is still an easy dinner that screams comfort food.
- 16 oz. kielbasa
- 5 potatoes medium sized
- 1 Vidalia onion
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic minced
- 1/3 tsp. Kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp. oregano
Preheat skillet on med-high heat.
Cut the kielbasa sausage into slices, and drop in the heated pan. Stir while frying.
As kielbasa is browning, chop the onion and potatoes.
Once the sausage has browned up a bit, and released most of the grease, scoop it out and put aside. Be careful to leave grease in the pan.
Drop potatoes into the kielbasa grease to fry. Once they start to brown cut down heat to medium-low and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well.
Once the potatoes have softened, add the kielbasa back into the pan mix in and all to reheat before serving.
*A reader (on Pinterest) suggested microwaving the potatoes until nearly done, then cutting and frying with the kielbasa, to cut down on cooking time. Since, we all seem to be regularly in a time crunch, to feed our families, I wanted to add her suggestion. She said it worked out well. *Peppers are also a popular addition to many kielbasa and potato recipes. I usually serve a salad or cooked greens along with mine.
