I bought a very large pack of kielbasa at CostCo a while back. I should have split it up but just stuffed it in the freezer. Any ideas on how I can use it? I am scheduled to take dinner to two families tomorrow night it is enough sausage for dinner for three families. I am hoping someone might have a great salad recipe with kielbasa.
Thank you!
PS I hope I'm spelling kielbasa correctly !

I don't have salad recommendations, but Kielbasa is a satisfactory sausage to use in Cajun recipes...so I'm thinking some Jambalaya or Gumbo. I used to make those Zatarain's mixtures and add the sausage for quite a tasty meal! I also use it in my lasagne sauce-- both ground meat and sausage. It's quite yummy.

But it's also nice just grilled alone. You can serve on rolls...pretend it's a night at the baseball stadium! Or for breakfast type meal, scrambled eggs and Kielbasa is very good.

German Potato Salad with the Kielbasa as a side is great -- the GPS can be found in Betty Crocker or Good Housekeeping cookbooks or online at Cooks.com. It serves alot, stores well and is a big favorite around here.

Hope this helps!

While I love Jambalya, I usually just grill Kielbasa and have it hot dog style with Boston baked beans, salad or corn...whatever. sometimes we toss it in the crockpot with saurkraut, but the kids won't eat it that way.

I have also sliced it very thin and baked it into bread with cheese. Yum.

God Bless!

Sausage Skillet Dinner

12 oz kielbasa/other cooked saus, cut into 1" pieces
2 T. water
1 Med onion
2 small red cooking apples
2 T. butter, divided
12 oz fzn potato wedges
1/4 c. cider vinegar
3 T. sugar
1/2 t. caraway seeds
2 T. chpped parsley

Place sausage and water in large nonstick frying pan; cover tightly and cook over medium heat 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile cut onion into 12 wedges; core and cut each apple into 8 wedges. Remove sausage to warm platter. Pour off drippings. Cook and stir onion and apples in 1 tablespoon of the butter in same frying pan 4 min or until apples are just tender. Remove to sausage platter. Heat remaining 1 T. butter; add potatoes and cook, covered, over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Combine vinegar, sugar and caraway seed. Reduce heat; return sausage, apple mixture and vinegar mixture to frying pan and cook 1 min. or until heated through, stirring gently. Sprinkle with parsley. 4 servings.

I modify this recipe a great deal, using some fresh ingredients and of course making it for a larger serving amount. It isn't the kind of thing you might share with other families per se, but I thought it worth posting because someone might get a kick out of it.
