I bought a humungus home made kielbasa and now don't know what to do with it. Any suggestions? Would love to putit on the grill but we haven't put it out yet. Have never really cooked one as a main dish, usually I add it to stuffed cabbage or jamalaya.

We cook kielbasa and use it as we would any other meat, alongside veggies. As I mentioned, we serve it with eggs; Pan grill it and make sandwiches; good in lots of soups; Make bean soup.

I have done something similar to this in a skillet. Using sliced boiled potatoes, onions and any other vegetables that were available at the time, in the refrigerator.

My FIL liked to cook it in a skillet with tomatoes ( stewed or with your own onion, pepper, etc) . Being southern he added a little brown sugar. This was served with toast to sup up the juice.

I use that or smoked sausage & slice it about 1/8"...layer in a greased/sprayed baking dish starting with potato slices, sausage, sprinkle some chopped onions, and then a second layer of everything. Bake covered at 350º about 45 min. to 1 hr....til potatoes are fork tender. You can top it with some cheese if you like. A side veggie & salad makes it a meal.

We cook up Rice-Roni wild rice and slice up the kielbasa and throw it into the rice the last 10 minutes or so of cooking. It is delicious!

I don't think I've ever tried making Kielbasa, but we love our hot dogs with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut (DH doesn't care much for rice).
