Winter Recipes to Warm Up Your Dinner Table

Winter dishes your family will love!

I am so glad to be back at the laptop after 6 wonderful months of new-mommying. So, whats my back-to-blogging topic? Cooking! Its been absolutely freezing out 'round these parts lately, and most likely your family has been craving hot dishes at the dining room table rather than burgers on the grill or s'mores around the camp fire. By this time of the Winter the same old dinners can become monotonous. Want to make supper savory? Looking to perk up the pot roast? Challenge your chicken, or better your beef? For the next week I will indulge you all with warm and welcoming dishes your family will drool for-tested and approved by the Summers residents themselves. So, whats tonight's recipe?

Potato Kielbasa Skillet Recipe

  • 5 large potatoes, cut in bite sized chunks
  • 1 lb kielbasa, sliced(2 whole kielbasas)
  • 1 c chopped onion
  • 1 c chopped green peppers
  • 1 c chopped red peppers
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • minced garlic
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1 t basil
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 1 1/2 c shredded American cheese (optional)

STOVE TOP:  In dutch oven, brown potatoes, kielbasa, onion and peppers in oil.
Add seasonings and water. Bring to a boil.  Cover tightly and cook for 20 minutes,on low, stirring occasionally.  Uncover and put cheese on top. Simmer until cheese is melted.

OVEN ROASTED - I mix everything together in a large bowl (minus water & cheese) and thoroughly coat.  Dump it in the dutch oven and roast in 475°oven for 20-30 minutes, turning occasionally for brown potatoes!

My family loved this dish! Even the Kindergarteners ...and, they're hard to please!  Hope this dish makes you look like a culinary genius!
