Good plain food! Only change I made was in technique. I sauteed the thinly sliced kielbasa in a little oil til it was nicely browned. Then taking a slotted spoon I removed to a warm platter while I prepared rest of meal. Returned sausage to main pan for last ten minutes of cooking. This way the potatoes and onion soaked up the flavor from the sausage oil. And I was able to limit oil use to a little over 2 tablespoons. Will prepare this again and again during the cold winter months. Very economical too! Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More

YIKES!!! The fat cholesterol & sodium content was way to high!! Substituted the 1/4 cup of vegetable oil to sunflower oil and only used 1/3 cup measurement! Kielbasa is not the best healthy choice so I picked chicken instead:) You can get just as much protein from chicken! Read More

This was good and easy to make too. Definitely don't need anywhere NEAR 1/4 cup of cooking oil though....I used a couple tablespoons and it was still very greasy. It would help to brown the kielbasa in a separate skillet & then drain on paper towels. I used red potatoes and left the skins on which gave it a good flavor. Next time I'll definitely use fresh garlic as opposed to garlic powder. Read More

VERY GOOD! I made this for lunch today...easy but filling meal! First I cooked the cubed potatoes in the microwave for apprx 8 min to speed up the process and then I took MC_MA's advice...cut that oil down to 2 TBLS. I also added 1 cup chopped broccoli (I bought one of those 3 lbs bags of pre-chopped broccoli and now I'm trying to use it up in almost every recipe I deem tasty) as well as 1/2c chopped celery. Also I used the polska kielbasa...HMMMMM. The flavors from the kielbasa really hype up the meal. I'm the only one in my family that melted some sharp cheddar cheese over my bowl but EVERYONE agreed this was an excellent tasting meal. I could only do what Christopher's Grandma said: "EAT MORE!" Thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

We love this recipe but I did alter it a little. I parboiled the potatoes used red bell peppers cut down on the oil. I coarsely chopped and steamed 1/2 head of cabbage until it was just slightly crunchy and tossed it with the other ingredients at the end. Read More

Sooooo easy. I actually peaked the kids' interest with this one because it smelled soooo good. BUT there was entirely way to much oil. My suggestion is to start out with a tbsp. or two and add everything to the pan at the same time that way the sausage will add it's share of fat (even the light sausage had plenty). I did it as the recipe stated & my potatoes started to get mushy by the time I added the sausage and then it kinda got greasy. My husband suggested the addition of sauerkraut next time. Good dish (the kids even ate it) thanks Christopher! Read More

Delicious!! This is a good quick and hearty meal made in just one pan. Left overs (if you have any) can be used the next morning in an omelet. We liked that too:) Read More

This recipe was ok....I love polish sausage and I love potatoes...but this just didn't do it for me. Extreemly toooooooo greasy! Would cut down the oil but then the potatoes would stick more than they already did. Maybe cook the sausage first then the potatoes. Read More

I don't like peppers so I left this alone but my it's one of my husband's new favorites! We used some red and some green peppers to make it more colorful yellow onion and red potatoes. We also tried to make it more healthy by using olive oil instead of vegetable oil and reduced-fat brats instead of kielbasa (sliced thin so it still looks like you have lots of meat). We also left it uncovered and only cooked for about 15 minutes total to maintain some crispness to the veggies. Even with all our minor changes the basic recipe is still the same and it's a winner!
