This was one of my favorite dinners as a kid and has become a favorite of my kids as well! It's the perfect meal after a cold and stormy day.
This is a super easy 1 dish meal! If I plan ahead far enough in my day I try and cook this one in the crock pot ... making it even easier!!!
Here's all you need:
1 polish sausage -- I switch off between using kielbasa and smoked chicken
1 Tbsp diced red onion -- or any other onion you have on hand
any fresh or frozen veggies that you want
your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
If you are using your crock pot, just dump everything in and let it cook all day!
This time I used a skillet and cooked mine on the stove top. If you choose to cook yours this way too then follow these easy directions for a super delicious meal!
1. Slice your sausage. Mine are fairly thin since I have little kids.
Chop your veggies and dice your onion.
2. Drop your onion and sausage in the skillet on medium heat and stir until the sausage starts to brown up a little. You don't need to add any oil or butter because the fat from the sausage is enough.
3. Once your sausage is beginning to brown add your veggies. (If you are adding frozen corn -- I suggest you wait to add it until the VERY END ... I find it gets rubbery otherwise.) Then add in your BBQ sauce. You can really put as much or as little as you like ... this one is up to personal taste really. I add a tablespoon of water to mine to thin the sauce out a little because my kids think BBQ sauce is too spicy on its own. ☺
4. Stir your BBQ sauce into your sausage and veggie mixture. Then add the brown sugar. Heat thoroughly and serve hot!
This would be delicious with some homemade corn bread or any warm bread!! Sometimes we serve it with rice or roasted potatoes!
