Turkey Kielbasa Skillet

I am so excited to be partnering with Jennie-O to bring you this post for a healthy  school year.  Jennie-O creates quality, affordable products and I hope you will join me in supporting the brands that help Blonde Girl Cravings operate!

It’s almost that time again. Back to school time. I would be lying if I said I was looking forward to it. I love the lazy days of summer, the lack of schedules. I work outside the home, so I am not home all day with the kids like some parents are, so I can see why some are chomping at the bit for their little bundles of joy to go back to school!

Regardless if you are a work outside the home parent or not, we can all use an easy dinner idea now and again.  Some nights we don’t have time for a from scratch meal, we need a few ingredients and dinner on the table in a flash. Jennie-O has us covered! Their Turkey Kielbasa and Smoked Sausage are two of my favorite products. They are so versatile! I have been making this recipe from Taste of Home for years. It’s a way to get veggies into those kids, they will eat anything covered in cheese!

Turkey Kielbasa



  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, halved and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 package (4.9 ounces) au gratin potatoes
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 1 package (8 ounces) frozen California-blend vegetables
  • 1 to 2 cups (4 to 8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large skillet, cook sausage in oil until lightly browned; drain. Add potatoes with contents of sauce mix and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 18-20 minutes or until the potatoes are almost tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Add vegetables; cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with cheese. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
