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!

    Grilled Kielbasa Sandwich

    Hello winter, I have been dreading your arrival. You can hurry up and leave now please! Now that the cold days and even colder nights have arrived, I crave comfort food. This sandwich is perfect for the nights when the kids are gone and I want something filling that won’t feed and army.

    The sandwich consists of all the things I love: cheese, sourdough, sauerkraut and kielbasa. Mmmm I am drooling just thinking about it! Of course, if you are going to open a can of kraut and cook the sausage, you might want to make more than one sandwich, but I find that both ingredients freeze well. Depending on how thick you slice the kielbasa, you may need to put a weight on the sandwich while it cooks, like a heavy skillet.
