"One of our favorite meals! We use potato/cheese pierogies, and I often don't brown them before adding to the sausage and cabbage mix. My husband loves it with mustard. So easy and so delicious!"

"Very easy, quick, and delicious. Because of the comments, I used 2 cloves of garlic and some dijon mustard (2 tsp?). wonderful."

"I've been looking for a new recipe to add to our dinner rotation. I found this one and was excited to try it, as I grew up on pierogies as a side dish. I made this tonight, but used 2 boxes of the mini pierogies and kielbasa sausage as that's what I had on hand. I also used 2 cloves of garlic minced instead of the granulated garlic. It turned out pretty well but it's a little bland, it's missing something. I'm thinking of adding a cider vinegar/brown sugar/dijon sauce that's used in another potato kielbasa skillet that I found on the website as well. It's definitely something I'll make again, and hopefully the added sauce will help."

"For years I have drained sour kraut and used it instead of cabbage. Also I used polish kielbasa (browned) instead of sausage. Yum."
