The house always smells awesome while this very tasty, filling meal is cooking. It makes kielbasa worth stocking up on when it goes on sale and uses basic/cheap ingredients overall. Vary the vegetables depending on what you have on hand. For example add/replace broccoli with a can of corn and/or peas, etc. If you like a little heat, sprinkle a little hot sauce on top after it's cooked. This should make about 4 servings, but it almost always turns out to be split into 2 large servings between the me and the boyfriend. We like to crisp up/brown the kielbasa slightly before adding the vegetables.

  • Stir broccoli and potatoes into sausage mixture; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, until broccoli begins to soften, about 15 minutes. Stir mixture and continue to cook until vegetables are completely tender, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Skin can be left on potatoes, if preferred that way. Scrub skin well first.

Add a clove or two of garlic along with onion for taste. Onion can also be omitted altogether.

I tried my version of this recipe over July 4th. I used red onion, carrot coins, red bell and green bell pepper, celery, mushrooms & zucchini. Seasoning was garlic powder & fresh black pepper I cooked all the ingredients in a wok like stir fry.It was absolutely delicious. Read More

This was easy but just ok... I made with yellow squash garlic and old bay seasoning and my 3 year old ate it. Very heavy so next time might add some broth mash the potatoes a bit and make a soup. Or skip potatoes altogether... Read More

I have made this many times before with a similar Hillshire Farms recipe. I use turkey kielbasa, add crumbled bacon and carrots in addition to the other ingredients here. Smells wonderful while cooking and yes, the more veggies you add, stretches the dish. Great comfort meal. Read More

It was pretty easy to make with things I usually have on hand. Would add more seasoning and cook a bit longer next time. Read More

My family loved this. I prepared my potatoes first by dicing, sprinkle olive oil, and baked in oven. I did this to save time for when my family got home all I would have to do was cook the sausage & broccoli. We love this sausage so I used 2 pkgs. (family of 3), and 6 red potatoes. We like the sausage really brown so I cooked those first then onions, broccoli, and potatoes. Put lid on, set flame to low and was ready in 30 min. Has all the components of our favorites. Read More

This was great! We will definitely make again. But I think the cooking times need to be adjusted. It only takes a minute or so to cook chopped onion, the kielbasa was heated through in 3 minutes, and my potatoes and broccoli were ready after 15-20 minutes. So this is a great recipe that can be accomplished in 30 minutes or less! A couple of tips: after you cut the broccoli and potatoes, put them in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, so they "marinate" while you chop and cook the onion and meat. And add a little chicken broth to the pan while everything is cooking to add more flavor (just to coat the bottom). Also, I used turkey kielbasa, which has great flavor and not a lot of calories. Enjoy! Read More

Easy Kielbasa Skillet Dinner Haiku: "So easy to make! Added a minced garlic clove. (And swapped potatoes.)" The submitter of the recipe made one suggestion that totally jives w/ our taste - heavily-crisping the kielbasa first. Luna also mentioned replacing veggies so instead of potatoes I used a large bag of frozen broccoli/cauliflower for a low-carb alternative. The kielbasa is what MAKES this dish flavorful so I would definitely not use a turkey/chicken or low-fat alternative unless planning on drastically increasing seasoning which would defeat the purpose of this stupid-easy excellent meal!

I actually modified this recipe a decent amount and it was really good! Honestly I haven't made it exactly the way the poster had done it but I'm sure it's good that way too. Some of the changes were for convenience some to get flavor (a little kick). Here are the changes is: -Used turkey kielbasa and cooked for much longer than 5 min (probably like 15 - it took a long time to get nice and brown) -Used two potatoes instead of three (1 sweet; 1 regular) -pinch of paprika - 1.4 teaspoons of crushed red pepper -2 cloves garlic -Added frozen broccoli florets and frozen bag mix (with green beans corn and carrots) -After browning the kielbasa I added all the vegetables. Put in a cup of water placed on lid and turn stove down to a simmer for 30ish min. This allowed the potatoes to thoroughly cook. Next time I think I'll only use one potato and add more of the healthy veggies. Read More

This was simple quick and tasty. Even my 2 year old ate most of it but towards the end refused the broccoli. I added a bit of carrot and more onion(I like onions a lot). Read More

This was a big hit with my husband and kids! Simple and quick perfect for a busy week night dinner! I used carrots instead of broccoli as that's what I had on hand but I do think this recipe will work with many different veggies! Thanks! Read More
