This quick and easy Kielbasa dinner is perfect for weeknights... 5 minutes of prep and in the oven in goes.... a quick toss with a brown sugar, vinegar and mustard mixture before going on the table... served with a nice German beer... a truly great meal!
You can use any brand Kielbasa you like... I use Hillshire Farms Beef Kielbasa.
Any kind of potatoes will work... I use medium to small red potatoes... quarter them.. any large pieces.. cut again.. you want fairly small quarters so they cook quicker... make sure they are roughly the same size.
The Kielbasa that lands against the pan tends to char.. which we like.. if you prefer less char on your Kielbasa .. roast the onions and potatoes and after about 25 minutes.. add the Kielbasa and toss the mixture a bit.
I honestly don't measure the olive oil I use to coat the potatoes and onions.. it's between 2-3 tablespoons... I have a spout on a jar that I keep by the stove.. just a quick swiggle over them and then use your hands to toss them to evenly coat them.. how much you use will also depend on how many potatoes you have.
The amount of potatoes is approximate.. make as much or as little as you like...
Try this great dish... serve some rye or pumpernickel bread with it... yummm!
