Love this one pot dinner filled with healthy ingredients. Need to keep this recipe

Celebrating the one pot meal today with Sunday Suppers. Yes, one pot to wash! Even better it is a cast-iron skillet. What is easier to wash than that? For the flavors of this skillet meal, I went back to my childhood days in New Jersey. At the time I did not realize how lucky I was to have the availability of good quality, homemade food. I feel like I have been chasing that quality and homemade flavor ever since. I didn’t realize how lucky we were to have small family owned shops making food like their ancestors did. How I wish I could find that now? In this case I was thinking about the kielbasa we use to get. I remember it being a bit of a drive to the store, but oh so worth it. At the time I thought everyone had kielbasa that tasted this good. It was moist but not greasy and the flavor, Wow! Serious flavor. It was a rude awakening when I tried kielbasa elsewhere. What? Why did it not taste like kielbasa? Where was the flavor and that succulence?

Recently my parents and grandparents were talking about the kielbasa. They told me that it was a family owned shop that made the kielbasa recipe that had been in their family for generations. Sadly when they wanted to retire, their kids did not want to continue the tradition. They sold the shop, and the kielbasa is no longer the same. It makes me so sad to think that wonderful recipe is gone forever. With quickly processed food, we seem to be losing the artisanal nature of food and the importance of recipes passed down from generation to generation. I think we lose a little bit of ourselves when we lose these recipes. They are part of the framework that keeps a family together and keeps our culture going.

With this skillet I used a turkey kielbasa and amped up the flavor with spices that are found in kielbasa. My family really enjoyed it, and it did remind me of my childhood love of kielbasa. The Brussels sprouts and potatoes added a nice savory flavor balanced by the sweetness of the pear. Yummy! A little ground fennel set this recipe on fire. Wow! It was a good addition even though fennel is not normally a spice in kielbasa. Who knows? Maybe that was the family secret to the best kielbasa I ever had.

  1. Sounds like a tasty combination - love the pears in there
  2. This is such a great one pan meal with all the different flavors from the pear and the keilbasa and potatoes - so great with the sweet and salty vibes.
  3. Oh, boy, does this combination call to me! Sausage, potatoes and Brussels sprouts for the win!
  4. What a great flavor profile in that skillet!
  5. I miss those days too, we went to the same meat market and butcher for years when I was a kid. everything was fresh, handmade, and so delicious. but I am loving all the flavors in this easy skillet meal. pretty sure it would be a hit with at least three of us :)
  6. This looks fantastic. I do a similar one skillet dish with potatoes, peppers and sausage. I love your take on this, with brussels and pears.
  7. What a great idea! Love the addition of pears.
  8. I love the simplicity of a one pan dinner and Kielbasa is my husband's favorite sausage. I found a brand at Costco that is absolutely the BEST I've ever had! Of course it comes in a pretty large package, so I break it down into smaller packages when I get home and freeze them. Definitely going to try this with them!
  9. Oh wow, this dish really speaks to me...I adore Brussels sprouts and never thought to combine them with kielbasa ~ what a shame about your family's heirloom recipe --- it'll be up to you to revive it ;)
  10. What a fabulous flavor combination! I happen to have kielbasa at home, so I am going to try this. Headed over to buy some Brussels sprouts now... :-)
  11. One pot, so full of vegetables and oh so perfectly delicious!!!! Perfect weeknight dinner!
  12. Re. the kielbasa ,potatoes, pear recipe. What would be a good substitute for Brussel sprouts? I don't go near them. Can't do peppers as my husband doesn't like them. I would love to try this recipe with a substitution for the brussel sprouts. Thanks
