Turkey Kielbasa with Apples and Sweet Potatoes

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. 🙂
