Oven Roasted Potatoes Onions and Kielbasa

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!

Made this dish today, had everything on hand ~ a miracle:) We also like a nice char on our kielbasa, I needed to up my temp to 425 at the end. Wonderfully easy to put together, yummy flavorful sauce too. Slaw, green beans and biscuits on the side, doesn't get much better than this. Kudos and THANK YOU very much again for yet another WINNER!

Linda said...

Sue.... So glad it worked out well for you too! I love to hear when other cooks really like my recipes!


Sweet Sue said...

Oh oh oh, brainstorm! Your sauce would be delish over roasted brussel sprouts:)

Linda said...

Fantastic Idea! Try it and let me know!

I'm not a fan of brussel sprouts but Warren loves them.. so I will have to try it for him.

Great recipe, but I have to know, what is an easting pan?

Linda said...

Thanks! ...hahaha... you win the eagle eye prize.... all these people have looked at this recipe and no one noticed my typo... it took me a while to find it.. It's a roasting pan..... and I will correct it.

Thanks again for stopping by!

I just tried the recipe, it's in the oven now. I don't have Apple cider vinegar and we don't like mustard, so I just added the brown sugar to the oil and splashed it on the potatoes. Hope it turns out!

This is sooooo good! I have tried it with various sausages. So far Aldi's Polish and Johnsonville Bratwurst work great. And sometimes with the vinegar from a sweet pickle jar when I didn't have Apple Cider Vinegar. Have also added carrots (very good) and red pepper (not really a plus). And so easy!! Works best in a convection oven (potatoes get crispier).

Linda said...

So glad you liked it, Claire! I will probably be in need of convection oven use advice.... when it finally gets installed. I can't wait to try it out. Thanks for all those suggestions.. they sound great.

Thanks for stopping by!

I was wondering if I could make kielbasa in the oven -- glad to find your recipe. I added leek and bell pepper and used Bavarian seasoning (from Penzey's). Awesome. Truly a one-pot meal, especially if you have some cabbage wedges to include, I bet!
