Reviews for Potato Kielbasa Skillet
"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."
"The combination of mustard, vinegar and brown sugar made it very good."
"I thought this dish was okay but not great. I followed the instructions exactly but ended up with a bit of a soggy, greasy mess. I'd cooked the bacon separately, and really think this recipe would work better if the kielbasa and onions were cooked and browned then put aside. Once the potatoes were added to the pan it was the end of anything browning. I might try it again if I don't find a different recipe that seems to be a bit more reliable. Also... If your not a fan of sweet over salty, cut the sugar in half."
"I thought it was great. I knew I already didn't like thyme so I hated to omit it. So I used half as much. Instead of using oil I used the bacon grease I got from my bacon. I will definitely make again. YUM!"
"Wasn't terrible but I don't plan on making it again"
"This is a very tasty dish..I loved it..I didn't add the thyme or the cider vinegar but added some crushed red hot peppers to add a little spice and it taste great!"
"The dried thyme overpowered the entire dish, I would skip it altogether when I make it again."
