I’ve been suffering from a severe lack of motivation lately. Between crazy schedules, and my husband’s week and a half trip to NY, I found myself procrastinating on many things, recipe posting included. I did do some cooking and baking, and took some pictures, so hopefully now that I’m getting going again, I will get some things posted. Let’s start with tonight’s dinner. 🙂
My daughter does not like kielbasa by itself. Says it upsets her stomach. For some reason when I put it in something, though, it doesn’t bother her. So this is one of my go to recipes when I want kielbasa. This is the sweet and smoky version. For a savory, bacon and potato version, check out this Turkey Kielbasa, Potatoes, and Peppers recipe.
This starts with some apples and onions in melted butter.
While that’s going, the sweet potatoes get partially cooked in some boiling water.
I slice the kielbasa about 1/4″ thick. Small slices means lots of pieces spread throughout the dish. 🙂
Mix up the spices while your other stuff is cooking so it can all get thrown together quick. The brown sugar and spices mix with the melted butter and juice from the apples to make a sweet and smoky sauce for everything. 🙂
- 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2-3 apples, peeled and diced 1/2" (I used 3 small galas)
- 13 oz turkey kielbasa, sliced 1/4"
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, not packed
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Place sweet potatoes in a sauce pan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
- While sweet potatoes are cooking, melt butter in a 12" skillet over medium low heat. Toss apples and onions with melted butter and cook for about 10 minutes.
- Mix brown sugar and spices together.
- Add sweet potatoes, kielbasa, and spice mix to apples and onions and toss to coat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring halfway.
