A Trip to Poland

Tonight I made a very quick, and Polish dinner: Polish turkey keilbasa and pierogies. I bought a package of turkey keilbasa, it usually comes in two long links. I used one link and about a quarter of the other. I'll save the rest for breakfast this weekend. I sliced the keilbasa in about 1-inch slices at a diagonal.

I heated a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and added a tablespoon of olive oil and about 2 tablespoons of butter. Once they melt together add the keilbasa, letting it brown on one side. Flip the keilbasa over and add half an onion, sliced.

While the keilbasa and onion are carmelizing together, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add 6 peirogies. Let cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the water and add to the pan with the keilbasa and onions. Allow to brown and crisp for a few minutes. Serve with a little sour cream. Makes enough for two.

I made a little side salad to serve with it. This is a really easy and fast meal. Some nights you just need that and as long as it taste goods that is all that matters.


  1. Jeez Laura, I wish I could come to your house for dinner every night! You make easy, yummy meals for weeknights. I wish I could get your Dad to get away from the meat and potatoes every night. Do you think you guys have lost any weight with all this healthy eating?

  2. I think so. Henry feels like he has and you can tell in his tummy. As for me, my jeans are looser, especially in the butt. :)
