Reviews for Potato Kielbasa Skillet
"Very quick and easy."
"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!"
"We liked this. I wasn't sure about this one, but the picture looked good."
"This was so good! It reminded me of German potato salad. I will definitely make this again. My hubby loved it too!"
"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!"
"Even my 3 year old loved it."
"Didn't turn out quite like I thought it would, but it has a real good flavor! My kids were very stand off-ish, but even they gobbled it up once they got past the strange look."
"We thought this dish was pretty interesting, but too sweet for our tastes. To cut back some of the grease other reviewers talked about, I baked the cubed potatoes in the oven with a little bacon grease to get them brown and crisp. I also cooked the kielbasa with the onions and then drained off the grease before adding the potatoes. It was still pretty greasy. I thought the leftovers would be better the next day, but to us they were not as good as the first day, so I will not be making this dish again."
