Potato, Kielbasa, and Sauerkraut Skillet
During the cold winter months, nothing warms my family up more than a hot, ready-to-eat skillet meal ready when they come in from their work. This is one of our favorites because it is so easy to throw together. I always have kielbasa in my refrigerator for a quick, meaty weeknight meal. And what goes better with a nice, spicy sausage than some creamy, tangy saurkraut! German food equals comfort food to this meat and potatoes family.

Skillet Meals for the Win
This Potato, Kielbasa, and Sauerkraut Skillet is one of my favorites because it is so beautiful when it’s all put together! Instead of dicing the potatoes, I slice them very thin with the skin on. You might be able to use a mandolin for this, or a very sharp knife. Once you saute your filling in a cast iron skillet, just leave it all in there! Layer the potatoes neatly on top, then the cast iron can go straight from the stove top to the oven. It makes a beautiful, rustic presentation for your family or for favored guests.
