"I cooked the diced potato in the skillet until almost soft instead of microwaving. Added some salt and pepper.

I also added 3 garlic cloves, and 2tbs of butter with the onions. Amazing! Will definitely make again"

"I was looking for something different to do with kielbasa. I doubled the ingredients and the only change I made was to add a chopped red pepper and omitted the thyme. It was really good. The sauce pulled it all together. I'm definitely going to make this again."

"This is one of our favorites. We normally omit the bacon and thyme. Skip microwaving the potatoes and just cook them in the skillet first with a little oil or butter (just enough to keep them from sticking) When they are almost done, add kielbasa and onion and proceed per recipe. Also you do need to season the potatoes with a little salt and pepper. I use either spinach, swiss chard, or mustard greens - depending on what I have ready from the garden!

We never have leftovers!"

"Roast the potatoes, after microwaving and draining, in a 425 oven using the bacon fat to crisp and brown, Cook the kielbasa and onions without oil. The fat that renders from the kielbasa is more than sufficient. I also added a little garlic and red pepper flake. Very tasty!"
