    Used diced can potatoes and hot breakfast sausage. Turned out very well.

    Wasn't sure about the caraway seed, but we really liked it. Will use a bit more next time.

    I love this combination of different tastes. Very easy to make. Would like to know if there is a specific apple ?? that would be best...?

    Such a pleasant change from plain kielbasa. the caraway seeds add such a nice flavor. Very tasty and simple!

    This was a big hit with my family! The only thing I did differently was use fresh red potatoes, parboiling them first.

    This became a new Fall/Winter favorite some years ago. I typically use fresh potatoes though, and as such, have to cook those in the skillet first, then add the sausage and so on as directed. The one con I found with this dish is it doesn't taste as good the next day, so I only cook enough for one meal. As is, the recipe will feed two adults whopping portions or a family of four normal portions.

    Was a huge hit with my husband and son. Easy and reminded us of a old fashioned German meal. Wonderful. I started the process on the stovetop and finished it in the oven til all the vegetables and fruit were tender.

    I was surprised at how good this was! I used a full pound of smoked sausage & used fresh russet potatoes. Next time I will steam the potatoes before adding them to the skillet as it seemed to take forever for them to cook. Otherwise, this is a quick & easy recipe.
