potatoes - peeled and sliced thin
1 large head
fresh broccoli, chopped
kielbasa sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
salt and pepper to taste
I have made this many times, and my friends and family all absolutely love it. However - one change I make - when adding all the veggies & meat to the bacon grease, also add appx 1 cup of water. Cover & simmer for about 20-30 minutes, then drain water, add bacon, and serve. This ensures the potatoes & other veggies will fully cook. This dish is an all-time favorite!!
This was ok but I thought it was on the bland side. I did not like the texture of the bacon in this dish. I thought the potato slices were akward since everything else was chopped I should of cut them into small cubes.
I make this at least once a month. It's delicious, super fast, and adapts well to almost any combo of vegetables on hand. Don't skip the sausage-on-top step -- it's the key.
This was fantastic! Thanks to reviewer "kim in NY," I cooked the potatoes for approx 10min in the microwave before adding them to the skillet. Also, I used a little more bacon and seasoned it all with some garlic and onion powder. Very tasty meal! We loved it and wanted more when it was all gone! Some of us sprinkled a little cheese over our bowl but was good without it too! Will make this again! Thanks Lillian and your creative mother!!
I thought this would be bland but I was wrong!! I used precooked bacon cut into bits, frozen brocolli, and smoked sauage. We like the flavor of smoked sauage better. I put all the veggies in a glass pan with a lid and baked in the oven at 350 for 1 hr. Then I added the sausage to the top and baked another hour. Next time I will add the brocolli after the first hour but all in all the flavor was wonderful. I'm sure it would be great on the stove if you slice the potatoes very thin like the recipe says. I cut mine into half inch thick slices. Didn't even need butter and salt!
My family loved this dish! However, I think the potatoes should be cooked first because they take more than 10 minutes. So place them first in a skillet and allow them to cook a while, then add the rest of the ingredients.
Brussel Sprouts cut in half and sauteed is also a good option instead of the brocolli.
Oh My! Decadent! Wonderful! I can forget the fat content for the night.
I made it as written excepts I followed other people's lead and cooked the potato's a bit before putting them in!
