Kielbasa & Veggies: Freezer Skillet Meal
This freezer skillet meal is quick, easy, and loaded up with healthy veggies to offset the maybe not so healthy kielbasa (lighten it up a bit with turkey kielbasa if you like, there is very little difference in taste imho). Moderation and balance is always the key right? If you find kielbasa on a great deal go ahead and stock up you can premake 2 or 3 of these bags at once for the easiest skillet meals. I gave you some veggies as a guideline but you can add whatever kind of vegetables you have on hand that you and your family love- at the end I tossed in some leftover spinach and cabbage from the other freezer recipes I was prepping and it came out great! You can add squash, eggplant, diced tomatoes, green beans, or whatever you like.
1 16 oz. polska kielbasa
2 russet potatoes
½ green pepper
1-2 cloves crushed garlic
oil for cooking
Optional: extra veggies like corn!
Dice kielbasa and all veggies into small bite sized pieces so they cook more evenly- I cut my potatoes a little on the larger side because I did not want them to become overly mushy during cooking- a bit more aldente. Dump everything into freezer bag.
At least partially thaw bag and add to a large skillet over medium heat with a light coating of olive oil.. A heavy bottomed skillet works best.
Pour bag into pan, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove lid and cook an additional 3-5 minutes to crisp the edges.
Sometimes kielbasa (and the oil) tend to be far too greasy for me so I will blot the dish a bit with paper towels before serving.
We like to sprinkle ours with a bit of shredded sharp cheddar on rice.
