This is a down home, simple, inexpensive, delicious meal that I love to make. Whenever I see the turkey kielbasa go on sale, I stock up so I can make this for the fam. With just four main ingredients, it is a no frills kind of recipe that is perfect for busy weeknights or those nights when Momma just don't feel like cookin'.
I started buying the turkey kielbasa and smoked sausage (as opposed to pork or beef) a couple of years ago when I decided to try to start eating and cooking a little healthier post-baby. Well there was this one night that my husband saw that the package on the counter said turkey. He started protesting the fact that I was using turkey sausage instead of beef, but I assured him that it was the kind I've always bought and that we, as a family, have all always liked it just fine. However, to appease him and his beef-driven mind, I told him I'd buy beef next time.
So I did. And you know what? I'll never buy it again.
The beef was way too greasy for our liking and was really mushy and unappetizing as a whole. He admitted I was right. Woot woot. Momma knows what she's talking about in the kitchen.
That's not to say I always prefer turkey to beef. Offer me a slice of turkey or a fat juicy steak and I'm going for the red meat every time, but as far as smoked sausage, kielbasa and even hot dogs for that matter, we're a turkey-lovin' family. Gobble gobble.
This comes together super quickly and everyone including the 18 month old, 5 year old and us old folk all love it. Serve it with a nice side salad or some fried eggs and you have a healthy meal that is super yummo!
