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.
