Sweet and Savory Kielbasa

I am not a person who cooks a lot of meat items, but since I am a wife with a hubby who has “meat” needs, I will cook a meat item once or twice a week. Kielbasa is the one sausage that I have loved ever since I was a child. I have always eaten it with fried potatoes and ketchup. Yep, that is my combo! So good.

Usually after that specific meal, I leave the dinner table feeling very heavy. So, to appease my hubby and my veggie loving self (my hubby loves veggies too, not to give the wrong impression) and my baby girl, I put a new twist on the traditional recipe.
