There is no need to microwave the potatoes, just cook them longer in the skillet. Very good. I make it often.

Made this last night. After reading reviews, I doubled the sauce with the exception of the brown sugar. I also omitted the bacon. Still a little too sweet for out taste, did like the Dijon mustard kick. If I make it again with tweak the sauce even more.

Yummy!??That's what my husband said after one bite! And he's a picky eater ad doesn't like to try new things. I wasn't sure about the sauce but it made the dish complete and very flavorful. I didn't include the bacon but I can see where it add yet another dimension! Have to watch the salt.

This has become a family favourite. Easy to make and tastes incredible. The young kids even love it.

My children absolutely LOVED it, though I didn't have the bacon to follow the recipe as is. Personally, I felt it was a bit sweet for my tastes. Next time, I will try using plain yellow mustard and replacing 1 tsp of the brown sugar with water or broth. (My kids will still love it - maybe just not quite as much...)

With just a few changes to best suit our taste, we found this to be quite tasty and reminded us of our favorite German potato salad. Cooking the potatoes, mixing up the sauce, chopping the onion, and slicing the sausage ahead of time was a great time saver and made the dish go together quickly when it was time for dinner. I used turkey Polish sausage, milder rice vinegar instead of the sharper cider vinegar, and omitted the bacon. We liked this well enough for it to go into my "make again" file.

We thought this dish was very tasty. I love kielbasa and potatoes and the spinach added a nice freshness to it. Sauce was very good also!

Extremely good. The sauce complements the sausage well. I didn't use the spinach and bacon because I didn't have any; but would have if I did. The mushrooms by the onion in the fridge were tossed in since they needed to be used. Recommend it.

AWESOME ! I didn't know what to make tonight for dinner so I found this and decided to try it. It came together fast, I had all the ingredients in my pantry and best of all it was so very good. I love kielbasa and potatoes so it was a winner. I left out the bacon and spinach b/c I didn't have any and didn't want to run out to Krogers. Now that I have made this I decided that with the KIELBASA (even if I have bacon I will not use it) totally not needed. The potatoes needed more time but I don't like firm potatoes so others may be OK with 4 min. Also next time I will add mushrooms and garlic like some other reviewer suggested. I had a suspicion the potatoes would absorb the dressing (they did) like potato salad so I doubled the sauce but it certainly did not change the taste. Honestly I could make this again tonight! DELISH

A really tasty, easy recipe. The sauce is mild, but ties everything together. I added mushrooms and romansco, and left out the bacon and spinach.
