Potato Kielbasa Skillet

Kielbasa is BACK!
See I told you, I am smitten. This was awesome, so awesome I made it last week and I am making it again next week. It was so yummy, easy, and the flavors were excellent. Next time more spinach, and brown the potatoes more.....I steamed them a little bit too much in the microwave so I was afraid if I cooked them even more they would fall apart. They were just find as is, but I would have liked them a wee bit browned. It doesnt look like much, especially when I take 1 picture so I can hurry up and start eating my dinner, but I promise you its yum!

Potato Kielbasa Skillet
adapted from Taste Of Home


1 pound red potatoes, cubed

3 tablespoons water

3/4 pound smoked turkey kielbasa (comes in lots of varieties in various fat/calories, I like this one)

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 cups fresh baby spinach

5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (I omitted because of fat content, while I am sure its delicious I didn’t think you needed that extra bacon flavor, but please let me know if I am wrong)


Place potatoes and water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes or until tender; drain.

In a large skillet, saute kielbasa and onion in oil until onion is tender. Add potatoes; saute 3-5 minutes longer or until kielbasa and potatoes are lightly browned.

Combine the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, thyme and pepper; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Add spinach and bacon; cook and stir until spinach is wilted. Yield: 4 servings.
