{20 Minute} Kielbasa Cabbage Potato Skillet

Tender potatoes, fresh cabbage, and salty kielbasa are about all you need to make this quick and easy flavor-filled dinner. There is never a bite leftover when I make this and my kids ask for it often.

As I was making this dinner for about the tenth time this year, it occurred to me that I've never actually posted it. It's a super quick adaptation of this hash recipe and my boys love it. Kielbasa is something that you will almost always find in my refrigerator.

This recipe is my answer to "what's for dinner?" and also solves "I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer and it's 5:00pm." Best of all, my family loves kielbasa, so it's featured in one of our dinners at least a couple times a month.

Pre-cooking the potatoes in the microwave is a great way to get this meal on the table fast. If you prefer not to use a microwave, you can boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender, about 8-10 minutes, drain, and then add to the skillet.

COOK'S NOTE: For this recipe, I prefer the cabbage barely wilted, with a slight crunch. If you like yours a bit more tender, simply add a few minutes to the final cooking time and remove from the heat when it is cooked to your liking.
