Hey Guys! I found another 30 minute meal. I re-pinned this from a friend on Pinterest of course. This is a really hearty meal that I consider “comfort food”. As usual, I substituted the sausage with turkey sausage and the bacon with turkey bacon, which I’m sure it would be even tastier if I didn’t, but that is what my family is accustomed to, so I just rolled with it. I’ve made this twice and both times, it was a hit! The sweetness of the brown sugar and the tangy vinegar make the taste of this perfect. I saw a variation of this meal on Pinterest and I may post it as well if I decide to make it.
1 pound red potatoes, cubed
3 tablespoons water
3/4 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cups fresh baby spinach
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
Place potatoes and water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes or until tender; drain.
In a large skillet, saute kielbasa and onion in oil until onion is tender. Add potatoes; saute 3-5 minutes longer or until kielbasa and potatoes are lightly browned.
Combine the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, thyme and pepper; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Add spinach and bacon; cook and stir until spinach is wilted. Yield: 4 servings, but I doubled everything, because I am the Leftover Queen!!
Let me know if you make it and as always, share your 30 minute meals here with us as well as any variations of it!
