I Have A New Love ...

... and his name is Philly Sweet'n'Spicy Thai Dip. Oh my!

It is soooo good! A little sweet, a tiny bit spicy and oh so tasty. I think he is my new fave of all the Philly dips.

So today's recipe is Potato Kielbasa Bake. WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW! WOW!

It was so goooooood! You start with Polish sausage (kielbasa) sliced and fried up in a skillet. Set that aside and then fry up a bag of hash browns in the drippings! I could already tell it would be angina-inducing, cholesterol-elevating good! Anyway ... in another skillet, you make a mustard-flavoured gravy ... then you stir in sauerkraut and the sausage. Don't ewww me. Just wait. You put that heart-attack-waiting-to-happen mixture into a casserole dish. Top it with the hash browns, then some grated Swiss cheese. Bake it all up and ta-da! A casserole worthy of any beer-swilling, lederhosen-sporting German.

Ok, so it sounds kinda icky .... but it's not! It is such a treat for the taste buds! A little sweet, a lot sour, and oodles of garlicky. I personally would ditch the Swiss cheese next time. I'm not a big fan of the Swiss (cheese that is, love all other things Swiss like chocolate and Heidi) so I would totally leave the fromage out ... everything else is super tasty.

So ... Potato Kielbasa Bake gets 4.5 out of 5 stars for it's mustardy, garlicky goodness.

Not sure what next week's recipe will be ... still searching.
