All in One Kielbasa


All in One Kielbasa

20 Min

Back in the old country, Polish kielbasa was a popular dinner staple. Our recipe for All in One Kielbasa combines this tasty, smoked sausage with sauerkraut and bacon to make a skillet dinner worth celebrating in the "new country," too!

What You'll Need

  • 5 slices fresh bacon, or 4 tablespoons bacon bits
  • 1 (32 ounce) bag sauerkraut, drained (4 cups)
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 pound kielbasa

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, fry bacon slices over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, until crispy.
  2. Remove from skillet, allow to cool, and crumble into small pieces in a small bowl.
  3. Meanwhile, drain all but 1 tablespoon of fat from skillet, then add sauerkraut, mushrooms, and celery seed to skillet; add crumbled bacon and mix well.
  4. Reduce heat to low and add whole kielbasa and simmer, covered, 10 minutes or until heated through.


Serve this cut into chunks with spicy coarse-ground mustard and enjoy!

Don't forget the perogi with thinly sliced onions. Saute with kielbasa. Put a dab of sour cream on top of individual serving (optional...but oh, so good.) I also add a bit of brown sugar to sauerkraut--if it is "too sour." This satisfies my Lithuanian blood a bit.

I fix this with onions & bell peppers cut into chunks with a little soy sauce. Quite pretty if you use the red and yellow peppers along with the green. Serve it with or over rice.

I should add that I leave out the sauerkraut when fixing it this way.

I use the Hillshire Farms and lately I've been staying away from red meat so I've been getting Turkey or Chicken Kielbasa. I really like the turkey. I like to partially fry saurkraut with onions. Tastes nice with some apple juice or apple cider in it, too.

Imcarcet-- where can you buy fresh Kielbasa? All I ever see in the store is the smoked one from Hillshire farms.

Butcher shop or deli.

there is a recipe, i think it's Amish,

I get it from a polish deli, it's all homemade and delicious

I can't eat sauerkraut, I substituted a bag of frozen veggies it was excellent.

We add noodles to this and boy is it good!

Yum, old fashioned European comfort food.

You failed to specify if you are using fresh or smoked Kielbasa. That would make a big difference in cooking time.

Most likely Smoked Sausage as the cooking time was only 10 minutes. I do a similar dish but use the slow cooker and leave out the mushrooms and add Caraway seed. All the flavors blend together in the slow cooker and is a nice hearty meal for the cooler months of the year
