Potato Kielbasa (don't let the name fool ya, 30 min meal!)

A Follower of our blog recently send me a recipe she happened upon. She made this for her family and her exact words were "it was beyond amazing!"

SO, because I like complicated words and it did sound quiet amazing. {Who doesn't like kielbasa? and potatoes..and sugar?} I decided to give it a go.

My kids wouldn't even let me take pictures. They sat right by me eating off the plate. Even the baby. My 15 month old could not stop grabbing my picture perfect play (ha)

thank you Heather!!

*****I had polish sausage already in my fridge so I used that. It can be found by the deli meats in your grocery store.

*****I used fully cooked bacon (also found in the deli meat isle), heated in the microwave and chopped.
