"This is another odd kielbasa recipe that surprises everyone. It's always a winner at parties. The best type of honey mustard for this recipe is a mustard with more honey texture than mustard. Very easy." — Megan

This was surprisingly really good! I followed the directions exactly except that I reduced the amount of ginger ale to 1 cup. "Saute" isn't accurate; you let the kielbasa boil in the ginger ale until it cooks away and leaves a sweet glaze on the kielbasa; then when the brown sugar is added and broiled, it makes a sweet crust. I was really surprised! I served it with the "Honey Mustard Dressing II" from this site, which is another great recipe.
Like another reviewer, I found the recipe as written to be merely average; but when veggies are added and the ginger ale thickened into a sauce, I'd give it 4.5 stars. The way I did it: Pour about 2 cups of gingerale into a frying pan; "saute" (technically, more like "boil") the kielbasa for a few minutes. Take out and set aside. Add sliced onions, mushrooms, and a red pepper; add enough ginger ale to cover veggies, then cover the frying pan and simmer until softened. While veggies are boiling, arrange kielbasa on a cookie sheet and add brown sugar. When veggies are softened, remove and add to cookie sheet; put the whole thing in to broil. While it's broiling, mix about 1 tbsp cornstarch with some cool ginger ale, then mix into the ginger ale still in the frying pan; boil until sauce is thickened. When the broiling is done, add veggies and kielbasa to the ginger ale sauce. Put into pitas with a squirt of honey mustard sauce, and serve.
This is a great recipe! I added some sliced onions and mushrooms to the ginger ale after removing the sausage and let them cook down until the ginger ale turned into a nice, carmely glaze. I served it in pita bread with the honey mustard and it was such a hit! The recipe says serves 5 to 6, but my boyfriend and I finished it off in one sitting. I will definitely be making this again.
I used polish sausage and sliced them in half lengthwise. Everyone loved them. I did as one other suggested and used the gingerale left in the pan to saute onions and mushrooms, which I served over the sausage. Served with baked potatoes and green beans. Yummy & easy!
I followed other reviewers' advice and served this as a main dish by putting it in a pita pocket. I used Healthy Choice smoked sausage instead of kielbasa. It was absolutely delicious and simple and enjoyed by the whole family.
We tried this a few nights ago and husband and I loved it. Very flavorful. We were making a meal of it, so I simmered onions, red bell peppers, and some asparagus in the gingerale after taking out the sausage. I cooked onions first, until the liquid was cooked waaay down, as we like our veggies kind of crispy. Just cooked to a nice thick sauce. The veggies were delicious and the sausage was very tasty As the recipe submitter said, it was a great combination of sweet and salty. My favorite way to have sausage. (I used the light Turkey Polish Sausage) Will do again often, as it was so fast and easy. THANKS FOR THIS ONE!
I also took the idea to make this kielbasa with mushrooms and onions. I reduced the amount of ginger ale though. The only other suggestion I would make is that you make sure not to use a sweet honey mustard as it makes it all too sweet.
Versital & delicious! The fun part is sauteing
the veggies of your chioce in the ginger ale, before broiling with the sausage. I've used
"baby bella" mushrooms, vidalia onion, sweet red pepper, & zucchini with great success! The serving sauces can be much more than just honey mustard- although that
seems to be the best. Make a lot- and get ready for raves!
